It’s pretty much sizzling hot these days in Malaysia, and I find it affecting my mood in a rather negative ways. Well, don’t blame me. I think a lot people gets irritated easily when they are under the weather. Lucky for me, though, there is a sweet way to combat the heat; indulging in the sweet gelatos.
Gelato is the Italian word for ice cream, derived from the Latin word “gelātus” (meaning frozen). In English this word commonly refers to varieties of ice cream made in a traditional Italian style. Gelato can be made with milk, cream, various sugars, and flavoring such as fresh fruit and nut purees. It is generally lower in calories, fat and sugar than ice cream.
There’s plenty of cafes selling gelato in Kuala Lumpur, but I find most of it are rather pricey.
But I suppose, the gelato prices in Mammamia, Quill City Mall is still pretty much reasonable.
It costs RM7.90 per small scoop.
And RM11.90 for two scoops of same flavour or two different flavours.
Mammamia have a generous selection of gelato, but below is some of their bestsellers:
– Ferrero Rocher
– Kinder Bueno
– Kinder Joy
– Bacio (chocolate-hazelnut)
– Yogurt flavor
– Cheese Cake flavor
Apart from gelato, Mammamia is also selling ice cream cakes, 1kg of ice cream cake for RM85.
I managed to try two flavours the other day when I was there. ‘Strawberry Yogurt’ flavoured gelato and ‘Lemon’ flavoured gelato. Surprisingly, I find the lemon flavoured one is much more refreshing and pleasant in comparison to the sweet strawberry yogurt flavour.
I’ll be going back for more and if you ever drop by Quill City Mall, you may want to give Mammamia a try.
