We'd just finished a gut-busting meal at Hai Di Lao and needed something icy and refreshing to soothe our poor Sichuan chilli-inflammed bellies.
Gelato at Alfero Artisan Gelato seemed like a genius idea, and being tucked away in the basement of the seldom-trafficked Orchard Gateway, it was somewhat removed from the madding Orchard Road crowd.
We had the (from left to right) Mango Passionfruit, Tiramisu (+$0.50), Pistachio, Dark Chocolate ($4.50 per scoop). The pistachio was awesome and I liked it even more than the refreshing mango passionfruit sorbet. Skip the chocolate and tiramisu, both were forgettable.
