plus39 gelato bar; as you already tell by its name, specializes in the delicious frozen dessert that is.. well, gelato of course. Considered to be the first live gelato concept of Asia Pacific, plus39 gelato bar focuses on using 100% natural ingredients which are both locally sourced & imported from Italy. The gelato here is made fresh every day, ensuring its consistency & quality.
The first thing that came to mind when I first walked into plus39 gelato bar was “Classy”. Sorry kids, this ain’t your neighbourhood ice-cream shop. I really liked the interior decor, it was a mixture of class & elegance intertwined with a rawness that balanced it all out. The storefront itself was quite eye-catching, with a dark wood signboard with motifs of a bull’s head. The brick wall on the inside of the bar makes for great photo-taking opportunities. (Foodies & Instagrammers, get your cameras ready.)
The key to plus39 gelato bar is the use of all-natural ingredients, keeping their gelato free of any artificial colouring, preservatives or additives. Due to using 100% natural ingredients, the gelato here is made fresh every day and what you end up with is one of the smoothest yet lightest gelato you can find around these parts.One thing to note is that their use of natural ingredients is apparent as the gelato here can melt quite quickly. (That’s a good thing though, alarm bells should ring if it doesn’t melt at all.)
Fortunately, plus39 gelato bar serves their gelato in pre-frozen cups upon order, so you still have some time to do your photo-taking before it really starts to melt.
One unfortunate fact about plus39 gelato bar is that it’s one of the more pricier establishments, especially for gelato. One small cup/scoop can go for about $7.50, which is quite high for gelato. Nonetheless, you are paying a premium for quality, so don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Worth A Visit/Revisit?
I’m not sure why, but I actually quite like the whole concept of plus39 gelato bar. The gelato here is definitely of a high standard & quality with a freshness that can’t be beat. Located near the CBD area, the place seems to be geared towards the working adults of the office districts. The price does get to me, but then again, it’s a price to pay for quality. I will say this though, plus39 gelato bar seems like an extremely fantastic place to bring your date to.
