Gelateria Caffe 2000

Gelateria Caffee 2000 - Gelato Cup
♥ Very very more-ish Gelato Cup
Pinkcocoa is once again on her Sydney gelato expedition. This time she ventured to the area of Rozelle and *yay* she found some yummilicious gelato that are simply stunning and very very more-ish. There we stood on the street in a very chilly very cold windy saturday afternoon eating mouthful after mouthful of rich creamy Italian ice-cream. The strong wind and cold weather didn't dither our determination to buy the biggest size - 3 scoops of gelato (A$5.50 for takeaway).

We were at the legendary Gelateria Caffe 2000 in Rozelle where gelato are made from scratch by owner, Tonino Lo Iacono. My tastebuds seem to have been so very well pampered by artisan gelato in Sydney now that I am extremely picky when it comes to gelato which can be a good or bad thing.

Gelateria Caffee 2000 - Creamy Baci
♥ Creamy Baci
We stood in front of the comparably small gelato display stand. There were only about 10 or so flavours but it took us about 15minutes to decide no what we wanted, all thanks to a nice lady who told us to try out pistachio (she said it's simply stunning) and if we likes hazelnut and chocolate, try the baci. So we took her advice and ordered baci (choc & hazelnut), boysenberry, and pistachio. Other flavours that we didnt order include tiramisu, milk, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, lemon, strawberry and a few others that I couldn't remember.

Gelateria Caffee 2000 - tantalizing boysenberry!
♥ Rich Creamy Velvety Gelato
All three flavours were very rich, smooth and so very velvety. The boysenberry has got quite a zesty kick to it and is surprisingly very tantalising especially when a cream-based gelato can get a little too rich sometimes, particularly when like us who decided to go for 3 cream-based flavour. The boysenberry seems to help us to clean our palate a bit.

The baci is very chocolatey yet very hazelnutty. *yum* It's like killing two birds with one stone - two flavours all in one! And gosh, when we got to pistachio, we were stunned and just stunned. It is just so pistachio-ey. You feel like you are eating fresh roasted pistachio! This is by far the best pistachio we ever had.

*yay* Pinkcocoa has found yet another yummilicious gelateria in Sydney. *yay* *yum*
