Located beside other popular eateries along East Coast Road, Birds of Paradise gelato ice cream has already received rave reviews despite having opened for only 2 months!
From the get go, this gelato boutique is completely different from any other local ice cream parlour.
Birds of Paradise at East Coast Road
For one, this dessert spot embodies a minimalistic theme. Except for a sole brightly decorated wall, the rest of the space is empty, filled with only the essentials (and that does not include chairs and tables!).
You might assume that this makes Birds of Paradise a rather unpopular place to grab dessert and you could not be more wrong!
When we headed over to Birds of Paradise on a Friday evening, we saw a steady stream of customers grabbing the store’s delectable desserts!
Gelato ice cream
Named after an attention grabbing flower, Birds of Paradise offers up botanical inspired gelato flavours.
Made on site, their floral infused ice cream flavours are crafted with all natural ingredients, so there are no artificial flavours or colourings at this gelato boutique!
Serving between 9 and 12 gelato flavours, the most popular flavours at this Kallang ice cream spot is its Spiced Pear (which has a slight cinnamon aftertaste due to the infusion of star anise), Strawberry Basil (which has an refreshing taste unlike artificial tasting ice creams which can taste a tad heavy) and White Chrysanthemum (which has cacao nibs scattered in every scoop)!
Bird of Paradise puts their own unique spin on the traditional mint chocolate chip, substituting the chocolate chips for cacao nibs!
Looking for something more unique?
Opt for the Pandan, which has a very light green tint. Or the Lemongrass Ginger, which despite the ginger, doesn’t taste too sharp or spicy.
If you’re looking for a traditional flavour to indulge in, stick to their Hazelnut gelato! Light and slightly creamier than the other flavours, it’s a favourite among kids!
The Lychee Raspberry Rose. Refreshing and not overwhelming, this flavour is the perfect balance between sweet and sour
Grabbing a scoop of ice cream at Birds of Paradise?
Get your ice cream in a cone! Their ice cream cones are made fresh on site and they’re infused with thyme!
The earthiness of thyme balances the slightly sweet and floral ice cream flavours perfectly!
If you’re looking for a sweet and unique treat that isn’t overwhelming, Birds of Paradise is the place to be!
Definitely in a league of its own, this gelato boutique is now on our list of MUST TRY places!
