Scoop of Art


Situated at the corner of Marine Parade Community Club, one can easily have mistaken this gelato parlour as an art gallery. Opened by Varsha Mulani and Anisa Tyebally, two gelato enthusiast who wanted to let their customers enjoy their gelatos as well as the joy of art and craft.


We were simply amazed by the consistent (smooth) texture for all the flavours we have tried. According to Anisa, Scoop of Art prides using premium ingredients to ensure their quality. With more than 40 flavours experimented, each visit will be rewarding.

Among the flavours we have tried, Yuan enjoyed the Brownies & Butterscotch and Mars Bar & Sea Salt for its strong fragrance of butterscotch and caramel. Unlike the similar variant of what Udders has to offer, the Mars bar bits are alot finer and hence works better with the texture of the gelato.

As for me, I am amazed by how "creamy" and smooth a sorbet can be. Apart from the texture, each mouthful is bursting with flavours and sorbet is no longer defined as icy nor sour. Persian Strawberry is one of the flavours that left us pondering on what has caused a unique aftertaste. Initially, I thought Shan Zha (Hawthorn Fruit) has been added but it is actually a Persian Greek health tonic which Varsha and Anisa love so much that they have decided to convert into a sorbet. According to Anisa, mint, ginger and a secret ingredient have been added to provide such an effect.

The other flavour which both Yuan and I have agreed to be good is the Alfonso mango. Using one of the sweetest mango from India, it is no surprise Yuan has associated this with a good mango mousse for its rich and sweet taste.

Another favourite of mine is the strawberry and cream, a National day special for its nice balance of smoothness and sweetness.


Some other desserts served in the cafe are home-made brownies (on its own, $3.80; with regular gelato, $5.90 and $6.80 when served with premium gelato) that are made of 66% chocolate. Alternatively wild strawberry and apple crumble (served with regular gelato, $5.90) are the other popular choices offered to be served with their gelato.


What makes Scoop of Art different from other ice-cream parlour is the theme this cafe gets to offer. Selling small craft packages, it allows diner to expand their creativity.


Hence, it is no surprise why the kids are so happy when they get to do some hand-on and also to enjoy scoops of gelato.


We were privileged that there was a children party on our day of visit. It is indeed a joy to see these children experimenting with paint art and that their parents are showing guidance and taking photos of them. Indeed a good way to bond families.


A relaxing and cheerful place to enjoy gelato and we would like to thank Ms. Adrianna Garcia, Marketing & PR Manager for the invite to taste the gelato. Of course, the afternoon would not have been more enjoyable without the warm hospitality of Varsha and Anisa.
