After the main course its time for dessert and there’s no palate-cleanser better than a creamy gelato. No, we don’t mean ice cream: whilst ice cream normally comes in a heavier and richer texture, Gelato is softer and smoother, stemming from the rich milky ingredients that make this icy treat. Of course, in this tropical climate, Bali is host to lots of gelato houses, each creating their own fresh and natural flavours.
Gaya Gelato is one such favourite establishment with a huge selection. Using the wide variety of Indonesian fruits, they create recipes that reflect the culinary traditions of Bali. You can choose from the popular flavours like mint, aranciola, dark chocolate with orange, strawberry, coconut topped with fresh pistachios, salty caramel peanut butter and hazelnuts and mix two of the flavours in a cup. Quite a mouthful!
Gelato Secrets offers delicious, wholesome and innovative gelatos. They also enjoy some expirmental flavours like black charcoal with organic Sulawesi vanilla, organic raw chocolate and salted butter caramel that keeps patrons coming back for more. If you want to devour fruity flavours, go for the strawberry and guava, pineapple and mint. The differentiating factor of Gelato secrets is that the natural fat from our gelato originates from fresh milk and cream and completely egg free. Not much seating area, so a good place to have Gelato if you are on the run.
