GelatoFruity1

Went to eat Gelato Fruity all you can eat buffet for RM15 per pax today in Mid Valley Megamall East Atrium, today is the last day, a limited time promotional gelato buffet for this newly opened gelato fruity booth

GelatoFruity2

6 big display fridge filled with milk-based and water based gelato

GelatoFruity3

GelatoFruity4

one of my favourite:  soupsop, with lots of real soursop fibres

GelatoFruity5

Coffee lovers should definitely try Kafe Magnum, made of coffee and hazelnut

GelatoFruity6

Banana oat is quite nice as well, taste homey with real ingredients

GelatoFruity7

Durian is not bad

GelatoFruity8

Paradise Cake looks plain with jam swirl, but it taste creamy without overly sweet

GelatoFruity9

My 2 favourite chocolate flavors of all the chocolate flavors offered: Rocher-Rocher and Ciocolato(made with 90% cocoa double chocolate)

GelatoFruity10

GelatoFruity11Not in picture is also their peach yogurt which taste of subtle peach.

Overall, I find their fruit-based flavors tasted artifically(imagine bubble gum/sugus flavors) with only few exceptions stated above.

Their gelato is being sold reasonably at RM6.90 for a cup of 100g

Price list

Penang-Ipoh-Trip98-JJ-swissroll

Tried one of their best seller: “Four Heavenly Kings” ie carrot, spinach etc filled with nutty cream cheese fillings. I find their cream cheese fillings have quite a bit of butter in it which makes it taste a bit like buttercream, would prefer the fillings to be less buttery. But if you chill the swissrolls well, the fillings will be firmer and feel less buttery

Sin Yoon Loong coffeshop for ipoh coffee and toast, above is cheong fun with mushroom sauce, just ok

Penang-Ipoh-Trip100-Sin Yoon Loong
