All Singaporeans are familiar with pork floss and chicken floss right? The fluffy, thinly-shredded dried meat is a long-time favourite on top of bread (see: Breadtalk’s Pork Floss Bun). It also goes well with rice, congee and the like. However, chicken floss and ice cream certainly sounds like an odd combination – but Pobo Gelato is diving in head-first and showing Singapore that chicken floss and gelato are a match made in heaven!
Chicken Floss Gelato Is Now A Thing
Tucked away within the walls of West Coast Community Centre lies this locally-owned Gelato cafe. They offer a variety of gelato flavours, as well as freshly-baked waffles. This July, Pobo Gelato is bringing a local flair to traditional Italian ice cream with their Chicken Floss Gelato.
Actual pieces of chicken floss are mixed into a rich vanilla gelato base in the right proportions, giving rise to a perfectly salty and sweet treat. Plus, it’s a real throw back to your childhood days eating pork floss buns!
Their Gelato is made in-house every day with fresh ingredients to ensure high-quality gelato. It is then hand-scooped using a spatula and packed onto the cone, like a real Italian ice cream man.
A single scoop of this Chicken Floss Gelato goes for $4 – which is pretty reasonable if you ask us! You can also get their gelato for about $12.50 for a double scoop on a thick, freshly-baked waffle.
Also check out their two other new flavours, Ruby Chocolate (pink chocolate with berry notes) and Gianduja (dark chocolate and hazelnut).
