Birds of Paradise Gelato Boutique doesn’t fail to impress. This newly-opened gelato boutique seems to draw a constant stream of customers in the little space of 20 mins we were there. Perhaps it is due to its strategic location (right under the overhead bridge linking between The Red House and Roxy Square). Curious onlookers would step into the boutique and ended up purchasing their favourite gelatos.
Birds of Paradise has a mission, that is, in creating gelato of the finest quality, inspired by the botanical flavours of nature. This could be why it is named this way. As Birds of Paradise claims, “we create our very own range of signature flavours, made from premium ingredients as far as possible. We flavour our gelato using natural and botanical ingredients: fruits, flowers, pods, herbs, and spices.”
Get ready to be spoiled for choices when choosing your gelato. When it comes to flavours such as mango, hazelnut, chocolate, mango or botanically inspired flavours in mint cacao and white chrysanthemum and others, Birds of Paradise proudly produces them inhouse.
How to savour your ice cream? You have the option to have it on a thyme cone (add $1), made in the shop using fresh thyme leaves or cups made from sugarcane pulp after juice extraction.

Single and double scoops are priced at $4.70 and $7.70 respectively.
Big and Small M tried the pandan and spiced pear flavours. We thought there are no spectacular flavours in them. Instead Birds of Paradise simply relies on good-quality ingredients to make these gelatos’ flavours shine.
Well, it seems Birds of Paradise is going to carve out a niche of their own gelato in Katong. I’ve not doubt they will present a sweet experience with their range of gelatos and bring people together.
