Gelatissimo (Circular Quay)
Full to the brim after Spice Temple, the last thing we thought we'd do was stuff ourselves further with ice-cream. There's actually a Gelatissimo on Albert St in Brisbane and I managed to walk past 2 or 3 stores in Sydney without a second glance, but the lure of having ice-cream on the sunny boardwalk had SUCH a 'childhood memory' quality that I couldn't deprive myself of the opportunity.
One of my earliest memories was of my granddad buying me ice-cream near the water. I have a feeling this happened in Shanghai so it probably wasn't the ocean... still, in my mind, the weather was hot and the sun was high in the sky. Ice-cream is nice any time of the day, any where, but there is such a thing as 'ideal'.
Circular Quay Gelatissimo was beyond busy. I guess I'm not the only one who feels like something cold when the sun is beaming down. They had a 'nutty chocolate' special - limited edition nut and chocolate flavored ice-cream that caught my eye.
I went for nutty nougat crunch in a cone whilst the other two chose chocolate and macadamia.
Ice-cream was fabulous. The view was great. Weather was perfect. I am one lucky girl.
