You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy a cup of ice cream, and we think that’s close enough!
KIKA Japanese Gelato
KIKA provides a healthier alternative for a frozen sweet treat as they use natural ingredients to make their smooth gelato with natural coloring. With a wide range of fresh ingredients both from Japan and Macau, they provide fresh gelato every single day. Their special flavor is sakura, and green tea lovers can choose from four different matcha flavors (matcha 1, matcha 2, matcha 3 and matcha 4). We recommend their passion fruit, as you get real bits of the sweet fruit, or indulge in their matcha 3 paired with serradura.

If you’re looking for a guilt-free sweet treat, head over to Digreen located in Old Taipa Village. Their low-calorie ice sticks include six signature flavors: coconut, mango, durian, white coffee, sweetcorn and black glutinous rice. Imported from Malaysia, we enjoyed their sweet corn and black glutinous rice popsicles the most. They also feature a unique ice cream dessert that we highly recommend—caramelized custard swirled in a bamboo charcoal cone served with chunks of their one of their selected popsicle. We had it with bits of black glutinous rice and enjoyed every bit of it!
