I happened to be in the Raffles Place area. It had been drizzling for the past two and a half hours... a downer for most establishments' businesses.
Emerging from Koufu at As I walked past Frigidarium, I stopped and gazed at the beautiful mountains of gelato inside. It's not a hot day. You shouldn't keep feeing the sugar habit... I walked on. Then I paused, and turned back, into Frigidarium.
Italian pistachio + Rum crunch & raisinI selected two flavors and correspondingly handed a five dollar note and a twenty cent coin to the lady manning the cash register- exact change, to save the shopkeeper some trouble. To my surprise, I was told that Frigidarium's gelato goes for half-price when it's raining so as to perk up customer traffic! $2.60 for a double scoop of gelato- what a great deal!
Regardless of whether it's rainy or sunny, spooning up Frigidarium's silky soft and dense gelato is bound to put a smile on your face. I'm glad to say that another awesome pistachio cream can be found at Frigidarium! Fragrant, nutty goodness... pistachio is quickly becoming one of my favorite flavors. Rum crunch & raisin was good too. I'm kind of puzzled by its name though, because there were no raisins (phew!) or crunchy bits inside. Adults may prefer to have more rum in this gelato, but the intensity of the alcohol was just right for me.
I will visit Frigidarium on rainy days. (Actually, not only on rainy days.) Oh! I must too mention that from 5pm-7pm on Fridays, two flavors of gelato go for the price of one!
Ice-cream/gelato is something I must have... all the time ;)
