Gelato Secrets

After I spent three days in Sanur (an area of Bali), I found a cafe called 'Gelato Secrets'. It was a great surprise to find a cafe amongst all the market stalls. After a day of full-on shopping, it was nice to relax and have gelati.

There was a wide variety of gelati, even though the cafe was small, there were very unique flavours, such as: avocado, ginger, sesame, tomato basil, pumpkin, kiwi mojito, lemon ginger and many more (which would have been great to try).

The highlight of the cafe had to be the decorations placed on top of each gelato flavour. The staff had taken their time to carefully carve shapes into different fruits, then place them onto the gelati. For example; the watermelon gelato had on top of it, a rose carved from a piece of watermelon.

I finally chose guava and salty caramel as my two gelati flavours. When I tried the gelati, it was amazing! So smooth and silky, but still salty, from the caramel. The guava was sweet at first, but then it was very pleasant. The two flavours worked really well together, complimenting each other, with their different flavours. It was the best gelati I have ever had (and I've had a lot!)

Another interesting gelato flavour was chilli chocolate; which is a mix of dark chocolate and spicy chilli. When I first tried it, all I could taste was the bitter and rich dark chocolate, then a second later, there was a burst of chilli. It was so good. You just have to try it.

Another person in my party, enjoyed avocado chocolate and sesame gelati. I didn't know what the flavours would be like at first, but when I did try the gelati, the flavours were so clean and unique. My favourite was the avocado chocolate, though.

Gelato Secrets',(Sanur) has nice decor; rather like a beachside kiosk, with a trestle table and bench seating out the front. There aren't many tables and seats, but for a small cafe, they did pretty well fitting in the furniture. The cafe has a pretty good paint job, the owners have gone for the pink and white look and some parts of the cafe have the distressed charm.

The staff at the Sanur 'Gelato Secrets' are friendly and very professional. Their uniforms are (pink and white) perfect for the climate in Sanur as well, it obviously keeps them cool enough to be able to work for long periods of time, in the heat. The staff also made my visit much more comfortable and enjoyable, the service is fast and the cafe has a calm atmosphere, created by the staff.

I am very glad I came across 'Gelato Secrets' and decided to go inside. 'Gelato Secrets' made my stay in Bali very special.

I hope more people will come to Bali and try 'Gelato Secrets', because I'm pretty sure they have the best gelati in Bali.

Later on in my trip, I moved on to Ubud and a couple of days into my stay, I discovered another 'Gelato Secrets' cafe. I didn't get to see if they had the same flavours, but I could tell people had discovered 'Gelato Secrets' has the best gelati in Bali.
