La Casa Gelato: Ice Cream Is No Longer Just For Kids
April 29, 2012 § 1 Comment
As the weather warms up, I often get a hankering for ice cream and the best place to satisfy that desire is at La Casa Gelato located on 1033 Venables, just off Clark Street in Vancouver. With 218 flavours to choose from, try not to get dizzy from walking in circles and trying the different samples. After deciding which beverage to order in a coffee shop, this is probably the second most difficult food ordering decision that you will have to make.
I was surprised to see adult offerings like their Guinness sorbetto that tastes quite strongly of the actual beer and has a surprising clean after taste. They also had a Jack Daniels whiskey flavour which I did not dare to try.
Casa Gelato’s creative flavours are endless like their pear blue cheese with gorgonzola which was heavy on the cheese with a sharp after taste and a sample was enough to make my taste buds happy. My favourite ice cream flavour is coffee and I got their most popular one, espresso with chocolate flakes. The espresso was strong and the ice cream was not too sweet or milky, exactly the way that I like it. I always love going to La Casa Gelato and will pop in throughout the summer.
