It is official - i have a new favorite ice cream place (or in this case gelato, which more or less taste like ice cream). Mezzanotte (pronounced "meh-za-not-tay") lies among a row of shophouses along Upper Thomson.
Gelato flavors at Mezzanotte are aplenty. The range include liquor flavored ones like Tiramisu and Malaga (Rum and Raisin), as well as fruity ones like Durian (using D24 quality durian) and Passion Fruit.
The Lava Cake left to impress with a warm molten center. It was recommended to go with the Salted Caramel gelato, which nicely balanced out the sweetness from the cake.
The freshly made waffles drizzled with chocolate sauce also got a thumbs up from both my partner and me. Not all freshly made waffles are good (some are soft and not crispy because of different types of batter used) but this one was soft and crisp as well. Also, the portion of the waffle was pretty huge as compared to what other places serve. We had the waffles with the Pistachio and Ferrero Rocher gelato, which i was glad were not overly sweet. You can also opt for maple syrup instead of chocolate sauce over your waffles.
I left the best for last - a slice of warm homemade brownie with bits of white and milk chocolate chocolate chips topped with my favorite Croccangelo gelato. Croccangelo has to be my favorite flavor at Mezzanotte with bits of sugar coated hazelnuts within the vanilla gelato.
Like most ice cream places, you can try all you want before making your decision on which to indulge in. And for a couple of bucks, you'll end up finding yourself in dessert heaven. Also, if all that is still not enough to satisfy that sweet tooth of yours, you'll be glad to know they also have take home size pints for your midnight movie indulgence.
