Strawberry Basil Gelato

$4.70 ยท 47 Reviews

Still one of my favourite ice cream places, especially with the special and fragrant thyme cone! Personal bias goes to strawberry basil

We decided to try a new flavour today and we thought the strawberry basil flavour would be a really interesting one! Unsurprisingly, the strawberry taste was dominant but the flavour was great because the strawberry taste was relatively light and it is not overwhelming. ๐Ÿ˜ The basil taste was really mild and provides a herby undertone to the ice cream although it would certainly be interesting if more basil were used.

As usual, the thyme cone is great and we would strongly encourage everyone to pay that extra bit for the cone. You won't regret getting it! ๐Ÿ˜

CHERRY ๐Ÿ’ BASIL tastes somewhat like a milder version of their signature strawberry Basil. The Basil ๐ŸŒฟ whiff was strong, the Cherry taste was pretty mild. (The strawberry ๐Ÿ“ flavour has a more pronounced strawberry taste!)

SPICED PEAR ๐Ÿ consists of a blend of cloves, cinnamon, anise etc. Somewhat Christmas-y! I could taste really teeny pear bits too!

Of course, both scoops in a thyme cone.
The B.O.P experience is never complete without the cone!!

TGIF! Anyone craving for @bopgelatoโ€™s cone like me? ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

This botanical flavours-inspired gelato needs no introduction. Step into the cozy gelato boutique and you will be mesmerized by a fragrant aroma. All thanks to their waffle cone that is infused brilliantly with thyme. Excellent crisp with hint of earthy, herbaceous, minty tones. While some waffle cones get soggy quickly, this one holds the gelato ingeniously.

Experience how the mellow, tangy sweetness of red strawberries blends with the sweet peppery undertones of basil, that makes the hot favourite strawberry basil gelato so delectable on palate. Try also the Midnight Gianduja (premium flavour); rich, malty indulgence of Dark Valrhona Chocolate with Italian hazelnuts. Smooth without overwhelming creaminess.

Perfection when paired with their one&only Thyme-infused Cone ($5.7)

Lychee with a raspberry swirl; still wld prefer the strawberry basil flavour tbh but thot Iโ€™d have smth different since my trips to the east aint frequent!๐Ÿ‚

Nonetheless, defo still one of the most incredibly delightful & creamy gelatos u can get on our shores! (ps. surprisingly preferred the cone soft/soggy; I felt that it enabled the botanical flavours of the gelato to twine perfectly with the the thyme-flavours of the waffle cone!๐ŸŒฟ

๐ŸŽ‰TGIF๐ŸŽ‰ time for cheat weekends๐Ÿฅฐ say hello to sugar rush๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ˜‚โœจ finally deviated from my usual white chrysanthemum cocoa bits from @bopgelato to try their strawberry basil and earl grey lemon grass๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’• and wow as always their flavors is one of a kind - I might need three scoops next time๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆ hope for more future expansions and innovation soon hehe๐Ÿคคโค๏ธ

I finally get the hype over this ice cream boutique. The strawberry basil flavour is really refreshing and light, especially suitable under the hot tropical weather of Singapore!

Iโ€™m going to visit this more often!


One of the beat ice cream i ever had. VERY REFRESHING

It is so named because the shop creates gelato inspired by the botanical flavours of nature.

That means fruits, flowers, pods, herbs, and spices.

The owner was inspired to make ice cream since more than a decade ago, experimenting with all types of flavours, till he wanted to settle for something more natural, unique and healthy at the same time.

Go for the Strawberry Basil, Pandan or Pistachio if you are there.
