I scream, you scream
Hooray! Ice cream season is here! It felt fitting to celebrate a warm Monday evening with frankly the best ice cream I've had in years.
Gelupo, on Archer Street in Soho, does the kind of ice cream that makes you go weak at the knees; smooth, creamy and bursting with natural flavour. I tried a scoop each of the pistachio and bonet (rum, amaretti, coffee, chocolate), and both were fantastic. The flavours are true and clear, and not overly sweet.
In addition to a dozen unusual ice cream flavours (which the very friendly staff are eager for you to test) there are sorbets and granitas. The burnt almond granita had great flavour.
The savoury food choice is limited, but when they do ice cream this well, who needs it?
