It’s fair to say that Australia gets some pretty nice weather, and Sydney is up on that list. A bit of sunshine can get everyone outside and feeling good. However, if the heat and humidity ever get a bit too much, finding a way to cool down is important, and what better way to do that than with gelato.
There is some seriously great Sydney gelato, with outlets offering all kinds of flavours from the traditional to the innovative. To be honest, even when it is not hot, gelato still makes for a delicious sweet treat. Here are five places to get the best Sydney gelato you will not want to miss.
Cow and the Moon Gelato Bar
There is no way you can ignore Cow and the Moon. They’ve won a world gelato competition for their freshly made gelato. Take a trip to Enmore to get a taste of their creamy gelato which is made on-site. If it is a refreshing feeling you are after, the wide variety of fruity gelato is to die for, with flavours to grace the parlour in 2017 including raspberry cheesecake, cherry mania and balsamic and strawberry.
N2 Extreme Gelato
Given that N2 has now spread to Paris, as well as its original Australia locations of Sydney and Victoria, there must be something good about their gelato. If you hadn’t already guessed, the name N2 comes from the chemical symbol of nitrogen, as N2 use liquid nitrogen to make their gelato. With new flavours produced every fortnight, you have more than one excuse to keep coming back for more.
Gelato Messina has taken Australia’s gelato scene by storm, having branches across Sydney, Melbourne and Queensland. Focusing on making all their gelato from scratch, there are 35 flavours to choose from, as well as 5 special weekly Messina options. Pavlova gelato anyone? If that is not enough, you can also find gelato cakes here and they often do special pop-up food events, with previous ones involving everything from pies to tacos. The Panacotta with Fig Jam and Amaretti Biscuits flavor from Messina was actually included in the top ten ice cream flavours to try in Sydney list on Deliveroo.
Drawing on its Italian roots, RivaReno has been producing quality gelato since 2005, with Australia becoming the first location in 2013 outside of Italy. Sydney got lucky with this one! RivaReno offers all the classics, as well as putting their own twist on old favourites. Their repertoire goes beyond gelato too, with brioche, crepes and waffles also on the menu.
And if you’re craving some late-night gelato, then Anita la Mamma del Gelato in Sydney’s Central Park Mall is the place to go. Anita’s does everything from gelato, vegan gelato to sorbets and frozen yoghurt. Ideal for those seeking a slightly healthier version such as sugar-free Nutella ice cream or for those who want a full-blown gelato feast with flavours such as Hershey’s with Oreo cookies, this is a gelato parlour that suits all.
