Cow and the Moon, Enmore


Like many Sydneysiders, I dis­covered Cow and the Moon when it took out the Gelato World Tour title for their almond affogato fla­vour in 2014. Unlike many Sydneysiders (if the queues out­side Cow and the Moon are any indic­a­tion), though, I only man­aged to vis­it some eight­een months later. I vis­it in the late after­noon, which seemed to be the per­fect time to beat their even­ing rush.


From N’s tales of her fre­quent vis­its, I have my heart set on lime in coconut and green apple and was­abi. Unfortunately, they had neither fla­vour avail­able on the day I vis­ited. I was dis­ap­poin­ted, but had time to kill in the area, so I take some time to choose from the oth­er 25 fla­vours avail­able.


I settle for man­dar­in and blood orange in a small cup ($5.50). Both fla­vours are refresh­ing as expec­ted from cit­rus fla­vours. The man­dar­in cap­tures the sweeter, punchi­er notes, while the the blood orange cap­tures the more bit­ter and more sour notes, that dis­tin­guish both from orange. The man­dar­in reminds me of the one at Gelato Messina, while the blood orange here is slightly sweeter than the sharp­er notes of the ver­sion at Gelato Messina. At $5.50 for two fla­vours, though, Cow and the Moon is the more afford­able gelater­ia without sac­ri­fi­cing qual­ity.

Cow and the Moon is loc­ated at 181 Enmore Rd, Enmore NSW 2042.
