GELARE Philippines: The Best Ice Cream & Waffles in Perth, now in Manila!

Gelare-16

Gelāre, known for the best natural ice cream and waffles in Perth, Australia, opens its flagship All-Day Breakfast and Dessert Cafe in the cinema level of Uptown Mall. The name is an Italian word for the final step in the process of making ice cream which means “to freeze” or “congeal.

The ice cream is prepared using real milk and cream, with real flavor and no artificial ingredients. It has a creamy smooth and dense (with less air) texture. The waffle is crunchy on the outside and has a good bite. The waffle & ice cream combination is irresistible.

We tried almost all the flavors and most items on the menu, and here are our favorites:

Located atop a limestone cliff on the Southern edge of Panglao, Amorita Resort Bohol offers the best, unobstructed view of Alona Beach and the Cebu Strait. Its secluded location allows guests to enjoy the eco-friendly and luxurious resort in peace.

Amorita Bohol is one of the four properties handled by the One-of-Collection hotel management group. The group promises to deliver one-of-a-kind experiences to guests in all their properties. Our stay at Amorita was undeniably one-of-a-kind.

"Amorita" translates to little darling in Spanish--our sweet and intimate stay in the resort undoubtedly lived up to this namesake.
