aROMA Gelato Jakarta: from Roma & Ljubljana

aROMA Gelato Jakarta

By means of world-famous Italian gelato, via Slovenia, and now in Jakarta. aROMA Gelato Jakarta, ciao!

From the beginning, aROMA Gelato Jakarta captures people’s attention with its name. The capitalized ROMA instantly ties the brand to Italy’s capital city, where you can find some of the best, if not the best, gelato in the world. While one might think that aROMA is an Italian brand, it is not. It comes from Ljubljana, Slovenia, where there are at least four outlets all across the city.

Grande (IDR 77K): Dark Chocolate, Pistachio, Flower of Milk, Strawberry with Mint

To craft the perfect scoop, aROMA gelatos are handmade daily from scratch. No preservatives, no artificial flavorings or colorings, and gluten-free. They promise to use only the best ingredients, including fresh milk and cream.

aROMA Gelato Jakarta also uses a secret technique to ensure that less air is trapped inside their gelato, creating a richer texture. Does it show in the result? . Four flavors were put to the test that we were happy to take: Dark Chocolate, Pistachio Bronte, Flower of Milk, and Strawberry with Mint. The first three flavors were all silky and creamy, assaulting your palate at all the right places. They were all rich variants, but balanced nicely by Strawberry with Mint, which had a refreshing and slightly acidic taste.

Espresso (IDR 18K)

Speaking of sizes, you can either have aROMA Gelato in piccolo (2 flavors, IDR 38K), medio (3 flavors, IDR 54K), grande (4 flavors, IDR 77K), or la famiglia (500 gr for takeaway, IDR 177K). We shared the grande size for two, and ended up feeling very full. For the price, they give a generous amount of gelato, and I’m lovin’ it.

If you’re feeling a bit fancy, do give one of their seven La Torta a try. La Torta is essentially the gelato version of mocktail, plus toppings. But I prefer to round things up with espresso. The bitterness was such a relief after a whole load of creaminess, and the shot took me back to Italy, even just for two minutes. Grazie aROMA Gelato Jakarta, for giving me finger-licking good gelato. That was not a hyperbole by the way. The gelato melted a bit and I licked my hands shamelessly. See you on my next visit, because you have at least 25 more flavors in your roster, and I need to taste them all.
