Gelato + Art = Scoop of Art
There is actually a lot of things to do in Singapore. Especially if you are into arts, not only can you art jam and drink tea in Arteastiq, you can also do art and eat gelato in Scoop of Art (facebook here)!
Located in Marine Parade Community Centre, Scoop of Art started in August 2010 and is founded by two muslim ladies. Their philosophy was to create a unique experience that combines gelato and art appreciation. So whether you are planning a birthday party or a team building session, the spacious area allows you to spend hours bonding with your friends and families.
The thing about doing art and craft at home is, you have to buy all the materials which can be pretty expensive. But at Scoop of Art, materials are provided and you don’t have to worry about cleaning up!
The art and crafts available includes colour-a-mug, batik painting, umbrella painting, t-shirt painting, canvas painting, all available at affordable price from as cheap as $12. Look, they even invited the famous local artist Wanton Doodle to draw on their cupboard!
Besides doing art, you can enjoy a delicious lunch or dinner here. Scoop of Art sells a cheesy version of Shepherd’s Pie (chicken or beef, $4.50). We had the beef filling which was flavoursome and not oily. It was baked with mashed potato and cheese which is very creamy.
Oh by the way, the chef here used to work in Botak Jones, so you can see traces of Botak Jones dishes such as Cajun Chicken Sandwich. But of course, he designs the menu and the flavour is not the same as Botak Jones!
I enjoyed the Tortilla Melts with Thai Chilli Dip (regular $5.50, $8). The chef makes its own Thai Chilli Dip which is delightful to the palette and goes very well with the Tortilla Melts.
There is also Cheese Croque Sandwich ($8) with ham, chicken pieces and mango cubes, great for people who wants a full meal.
For an extra kick, try the Garlic Prawn Pasta ($8). The prawns were fresh and crunchy, and the pasta is cooked with chilli and garlic. While the dish has tremendous flavor and texture, I would still prefer it to be less spicy in order to enjoy the dish to the fullest.
So far, Scoop of Art has came up with over 60 gelato flavors. Everyday, there will be 18 different flavours of gelato and sorbet available.
The gelato chef cum owner, Anisa Tyebally, is a Chinese muslim and she opened this place because of her love for making gelato. She would often experiment new flavours at home for her 3 kids. All the gelato here is home made with the freshest ingredient and no preservatives or food colouring is added.
Some of the popular flavour includes White Chocolate with Raspberry (new!), Raspberry, Ferraro Nutella, Alfonso Mango, Lemon Meringue Pie and Mars Bar & Sea Salt.
I love the Lemon Meringue Pie out of the 6 flavours, a delicious combination of biscuit crust, lemon zest and vanilla gelato. For nutella fans, try the Ferraro Nutella which is a combination of chocolate and hazelnut. The Raspberry sorbet is very refreshing, the gelato chef uses a large amount of raspberries, hence giving it the bright red colour and tangy sweetness.
Premium Gelato is priced at $3.80 (small), $4.80 (medium) and $5.80 (large). Regular gelato is priced at $3.20 (small), $4.20 (medium) and $5.20 (large). If you want to try many different flavours with family or friends, take the Scoop of Six at $10.50!
Scoop of Art also does Students Meal ranging from $5.50 to $6.50.
So if you are planning of an activity to do with your friends or families, come down to Scoop of Art!
