Cream of Ice Cream!

I notice on my FaceBook that an ex-Star colleague is in Vancouver and she love ice cream, I asked her if she knew about this joint in Vancouver that serves 218, yes; TWO HUNDRED AND EIGHTEEN flavours of yummy Italian Gelato ice cream...

From a local paper, and I quote:

"Tucked away in an industrial corner of East Vancouver where Venables Street crosses the railroad track (1033 Venables Street, 251-3211) is an Italian ice-cream factory and parlour to make the Roman gods droll.

According to owner Vince Misceo, who is from Bitritto in southeastern Italy. La Casa Gelato has more flavours available than any rival establishment in the world."

Have you ever fancy blue cheese or a double cone of roasted garlic? Or you might prefer taro root, lemon-tarragon, peppercorn jelly, curry, wasabi or DURIAN? Or you might just fancy plain vanilla?

The tasting line, you can taste all the favours if you got plenty of time!

Decision, decision, decision! I will take three!

If you happen to be in Vancouver, DO NOT miss this Gelato heaven! I'LL BE BACK!

If you can't go there then check out their excellent web site and droll and salivate! Ha ha ha...

Very North American, not very intimate atmosphere!
Theres a great little Gelato place in Eastbourne near Wellington called Gelissimo. I think I prefer a good quality Ice Cream though.
