It’s always a good time for gelato. It’s great for cooling down in the summer, but just as delicious during the winter when you’re all wrapped up. So, Gelato Messina is a destination all year round.
This is the Blood Orange (1 scoop for $5.00). As expected from a sorbet, it is immensely refreshing and cleanses the palate after a greasy or heavy meal. The blood orange flavour captures the stronger aroma of the fruit compared to regular oranges, along with its natural sweetness and hint of bitterness.
This is Strawberry. Fruit sorbets really shine at Gelato Messina and this one is no exception, with brightly sweet and slightly acidic notes of fresh strawberries.
And this is one of Macadamia Crunch, one of the few creamy flavours I’ve tried from Messina. Dessert usually comes after lunch, so I opt for something light by going for sorbets. But T was late for lunch so N and I ducked into the Newtown store to pass the time.
The ice cream is beautifully creamy with generous chunks of macadamia throughout to add a pleasant nuttiness to break up the creaminess.
Gelato Messina is located at Café Court, The Star, 80 Pyrmont Road, Pyrmont NSW 2009 and 262 King St, Newtown NSW 2042.
