The new brand of Gelatissimo is fresher and more contemporary. From the previous red and green colors, the brand has adapted into a more modern take with red and black. The vibrant look translated to what the brand stands for, which is to provide positive customer experience.

“We want to achieve and complete the perfect café experience in your friendly neighborhood,” Maite Moraza, the director of Gelatissimo Philippines, said. After seven years in the country, Gelatissimo has embraced a fresher café format. It is the first store to have inside seats where customers can sit down and take the time to enjoy their gelato and the company of their loved ones.

Something exciting is still in the works for Gelatissimo Café, which people can look forward to in the next few weeks.

Zee’s Pick for the Week

Tickle Your Palate with Father’s Eggs

ZEE picks an interesting dessert for our reader’s sweet passions.  Plantation Bay’s Bakeshop by the Beach created a dessert specialty that will tickle both your palate and naughty thoughts.

Pastry Chef Gerard Apurado presented a unique treat for this year’s Father’s Day, it is called Father’s Eggs.  However, Father’s Eggs received highly positive feedback from their clientele and from food critics.  And the people could not stop ordering them; so why not make everyday a Father’s Day?

Father’s Eggs are delicately crafted custard inside an eggshell; plus, it comes in six different flavors:  coffee, pandan, strawberry, ube, plain custard, and mango.  However, each flavor is given a playful name by Chef Apurado.  The amazing part is that every flavor is so distinct and crave-worthy.  Chef Apurado is keeping the recipe a secret; but everyone can order Father’s Eggs at the Plantation Bay’s Bakeshop by the Beach Facebook page.
