Scoopin and Chillin' at Morelli's Gelato, Now Open at GH Mall in Greenhills

From Scotland by way of Southern Italy, the fifth generation family owned brand continues to spread its reach around the world with more locations serving its bestselling line of Italian ice cream and gelato. And it was really just a matter of time before its acclaimed line of decadent creations reached the Greenhills neighborhood. And about time too...

Even as the onset of rains ends the summer season, the timing of the entry of Morelli's Gelato to the busy Greenhills commercial center's emerging dining scene just couldn't be better. After all, who can resist a scoop of pure and silky smooth indulgence even when summer's over? And when it's cloudy with a chance of rain over Greenhills, it's time for a scoop or two at Morelli's Gelato now open at the new GH Mall

From humble beginnings, the inspiring story began way back in 1907 when Italian immigrants Guiseppe and son Mario Morelli sold the frozen creations on their bicycles in Scotland. Slowly, the Morelli name became synonymous with premium quality gelato and the bicycles were eventually replaced a van followed by their very first ice cream parlor in 1932. Today, the family legacy is managed by the fifth generation led by Bibi Morelli driving the brand's global expansion. But at the heart of the brand's impressive growth are the core values rooted in uncompromising quality and freshness. Each offering from Morelli's Gelato is made fresh daily with the finest ingredients sourced from around the world. And now, you can experience luxurious gelato indulgence at GH Mall with the newest location of Morelli's Gelato

Located right beside Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ at the Lower Ground Phase 1 of GH Mall, Morelli's Gelato offers the perfect sweet treat after a round of shopping or a hearty yakiniku lunch. Both Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ and Morelli's Gelato are managed by G Sam Philippines, and the opening of new locations for both dining concepts present aggressive expansion plans that means even more options for local diners (for more on Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ, see my post Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ, Now Grillin' at GH Mall in Greenhills). 

A closer look at the decadent offerings of Morelli's Gelato reveals time-honored and centuries old techniques in the Italian gelato tradition. Milk based and not cream, Italian gelato is denser and smoother with more intense flavors yet much lower in calories and fat than the usual commercial ice cream. Using premium natural ingredients with no artificial flavors or additives and produced on site daily, the fresh and clean flavors and silky smooth textures combine for a delectable play with each scoop and bite. 

The thicker, richer yet silky smooth consistency is due to the slower churning rate resulting in less air infused in the gelato. This consistency also delivers more pronounced notes, draping the palate with a lingering richness as it slowly melts releasing even more flavors. But the proof is in the pudding or in this case, a scoop of Morelli's Gelato. Tease your palate with a scoop of the Arancia Cheesecake, an opulent blend of creamy cheesecake with bold hints of orange. 

The creamy richness of the cheesecake base is perfectly tempered by the subtle sharpness of the orange for that balanced finish. Going past the technical differences versus ice cream, just enjoy each spoonful and let the gelato do all the talking. The Arancia Cheesecake is definitely a delightful discovery at Morelli's Gelato to add to my list of personal picks, but I do have my usual go-to flavors that always hits the spot. 

Like the Hazelnut with its play on subtle and even nuanced nutty flavors delivered in an opulent silky smooth kiss on the palate...

...or the equally tempting Pistachio with its distinctive notes and creamy finish. The dense and creamy base allows the flavors to linger on the palate much longer, becoming more intense with a second bite. 

Then, there's the classic Stracciatella. Imagine fine strands of chocolate churned into the milky gelato base, frozen and transformed with a delicate crunch releasing deep chocolate notes. The bold hints of chocolate are elegantly smoothened by the creamy gelato with one spoonful immediately followed by another. 

One more scoop? Why not. Just give and go with the flow. Even on a cloudy day. 

Morelli's Gelato offers a full range of sinful pleasures from their frozen yogurt to irresistible sundaes, Kilimanjaro coffee, teas and chocolate to nostalgic milkshakes and soda floats anchored on their signature gelato creations. And you'll find it all here at their newest location in GH Mall

Make your well-deserved cheat day special with a scoop or two of Morelli's Gelato, now scoopin' and chillin' at its newest location in Greenhills.
