Not just this post, but for Geláre to be certified Halal! And finally, the time has come!
I'm not sure about you guys but when I was in school (many many many years ago), the only place we could get waffles and ice-cream was A&W. And since they went out of business in SG (many many many years ago) it has been pretty difficult to get your waffles and ice-cream fix unless you crossed the Causeway.
And then Geláre comes along (many many many years ago) but unfortunately it was not Halal. And since then, so many ice-cream joints have opened up but also none Halal. So many 'Waffle Tuesdays' have gone past :(
Well, no more of that! Now we can all enjoy Waffle Tuesday (or waffle ANYDAY) too! LOL
But then some of you might be thinking... "So nice meh Geláre waffle?"
|Super Tutti Frutti Treat ($15.60)|
The one thing we noticed is the variety of Waffles you can choose from.
Firstly - you can have half a waffle or a whole waffle. And then you gotta decide which type you'd like. Classic? Chocolate Chip Treat? Tutti Frutti? Churro? Rocky Road? And then you gotta choose how many scoops of ice-cream and which ice-cream flavours.
Sounds like a lot of work? Don't worry because it all pays off in the end!
We went with the Tutti Frutti Treat with 2 scoops of ice-cream. It comes topped off with some peaches, strawberries and fresh cream. We opted for the maple syrup instead of the chocolate sauce but somehow it was left out :\
The waffle itself was really good! Nice and fluffy and tasty too! But we think the pairing of the ice-cream is what makes it all worthwhile.
We chose a 2 scoop option and decided on the classic flavours - Chocolate and Strawberry.
Strawberry Ice-Cream is one of my favourite flavours and how I determine the quality and type of ice-cream being served because it's easily decided. There are 2 types of Strawberry ice-cream - 1 tastes like strawberry milk and the other tastes like strawberries.
The one at Geláre tastes like strawberries which means natural flavours!
Geláre prides itself on serving "Au naturale premium ice-cream" and we can really taste it too.
Fresh flavours that taste great and a pretty wide variety too. (Sorry we didn't list down all the flavours because we were too busy whacking the waffle!) And if 1 or 2 scoops is not enough,,, have 3!!
And in case you were wondering, Geláre serves more than just Waffles and Ice-Cream!
You could also have a Pasta, Salad, Sandwich or Pie meal too!
The Mushroom Soup was a bit bland though. Add a little salt and pepper to help it along but we'd classify this under the "don't have also never mind' category.
Number 1 - The Lasagna was surprisingly good. Number 2 - that's a damn good photo! LOL
We didn't expect much from the Lasagna but somehow it was actually really good! The tomato sauce was not too sour and there was quite a fair amount of meat in between the lasagna sheets. Overall it made for a pretty satisfying bite.
If the Lasagna is not bad, wouldn't mind giving the Pasta dishes a go too actually!

They have all sorts of waffles at Geláre. They even have pancakes for breakfast and a whole range of foods like Sandwiches, Pasta, Pies and even Salads. But I think that in the end, we will all be heading down mainly for the Waffles and Ice-Cream am I right?
They have Geláre outlets all over the island namely AMK Hub, Causeway Point, The Star Vista, SAFRA Jurong, NUH Medical Centre, Suntec City, IMM and Tampines 1.
