Via del Corso Pasticceria e Caffé, Sydney

I’ll eat almost any­thing that’s black ses­ame fla­voured, so here with have Black Sesame ($5.00 for one scoop). The gelato base itself is creamy with the mel­low­er fla­vour of white ses­ame, while the stronger, nut­ti­er black ses­ame notes come through only as you bite the black ses­ame seeds through­out the white ses­ame base. As I love the stronger nut­ti­er fla­vours of black ses­ame, this would’ve made for a deli­cious ice cream with a black ses­ame base in addi­tion to the black ses­ame seeds throughout.

Something irrit­at­ing about this gelater­ia is the poor ser­vice with some male staff mem­bers spend­ing a dis­pro­por­tion­ately long time chat­ting (read: flirt­ing) with their Italian female cus­tom­ers while well aware of oth­er cus­tom­ers wait­ing to be served. Indeed, while this male staff mem­ber was flirt­ing with their cus­tom­er, the female staff mem­bers were busy serving a whole group of cus­tom­ers on the oth­er side of the counter. Focus on work­ing when you’re at work, focus on social­ising when you’re not at work.
