With Australian origin, Geláre takes pride in serving distinguished ice cream flavours that are churned with no air. The result? Pure 100 percent cream infused ice cream that is thick on flavour and heavy on texture – the exact way how ice cream should taste. Geláre’s ice creams are much creamier and thicker than usual Italian ice cream – with such intense flavours and rich milky texture; it is a definite hit among its patronising families.

A newly revamped restaurant that dates back to the 1968, Jack’s Place is no stranger to the Singaporean core. With various beefsteak choices ranging from grass-fed beef cuts to prime cut selections, Jack’s Place goes the extra mile in providing quality comfort food to its patrons. For a full experience of the tempting steak cuts, patrons have the option to make their food picks a meal. There are also various non-steak options that your non-beef eating family members can indulge in. With the revamped restaurant setting that Jack’s Place is shifting towards, the more modernistic outlook will spur on the snug factor that Jack’s Place is acclaimed for.

The chefs and waiters also create a heartening experience by keeping all smiles and warm gestures – this definitely attracts patrons to return for more goodness.
