29 Apr Amorino Gelato: Fulfil your Dreams
A friend recalls a wonderful story from her childhood: as a treat for accompanying her mother on weekly shopping trips, Constance was allowed the indulgence of a single ice cream scoop of her own choice from the local parlour. Once, while her mother was travelling, Constance’s father did the shopping instead, and had been reminded about her weekly treat. She still remembers her amazement at the unimaginable decadence that followed: being allowed to choose a cone piled high with not just one scoop but four different flavours!
Happily, Amorino have understood that this innocent joy of copious amounts of ice cream never leaves us, and that our inner child still needs generous helpings of frozen, sweet treats. Not only this, but they have even managed to capture the truly unimaginable for us supposed-to-be grown-ups: limitless flavours of ice cream on one cone. Their signature creation, the Macarose flower cone has petals instead of scoops, with as many flavours of choice as you can decorate around one cone; at the flower’s heart, a pretty, gelato-filled macaroon. Amorino serves finest quality gelato, rather than ice cream, which is authentically Italian, considerably reduced in fat, and altogether more indulgent. Amorino’s level of sophistication doesn’t end there either.
Branded as a gelato boutique, their roomy, airy, welcoming interior, invites you to drool over their joyful array of organic, natural, gelati. With not an artificial flavour or colour in sight, you will be amazed at the intensity of flavours and shades. Sourced from the world’s best suppliers, their ingredients are strictly selected and deserve your attention – with items such as Madagascan vanilla, Calabrian mandarins, and big, fat, succulent Turkish cherries. This rigorous sourcing of the best ingredients leads to seasonal favourites such as this month’s delicately zesty Mandarin Stracciatella. Try it on top of a hot, chunky waffle with two other complementary flavours such as the 70% Ecuadorian Chocolate and Alfonso Indian Mango.
Gelato is considerably healthier than ice cream, and as Amorino displays a handy, at-a-glance guide for those with specific intolerances, there really is no excuse for not indulging your every sweet-toothed whim. Enjoy the welcoming atmosphere for an unforgettable experience, take out with their beautiful, thermally insulated take-away gelato boxes, or book Amorino for your wedding, baby shower or iftar. With gelati, sorbets, luxury cakes or their gourmet chocolate collection, there is plenty of choice to fulfil your inner child’s every wildest dream.
