N and I recently returned to La Mamma del Gelato Anita after an absence of over a year for no good reason. More precisely, we introduced T to the gelateria and now he can’t get enough of it.
There are new flavours on offer. Here on the top, we have Melon & Lychee with bright notes of rockmelon and honeydew followed by a pleasantly floral and natural lychee flavour with bits of the fruit scattered throughout. On the bottom, we have Roseberry, a tangy raspberry sorbet with a delicious undertone of rose that lifts the flavour.
In the year since our last visit, they’ve renamed the Limoncello to the more accessible name of Lemon & Mint. It tastes just as salivatingly and satisfyingly sour as ever, while the Watermelon & Mint now takes on a deeper pink colour with a sweeter but still delicious flavour. These two remain my favourite flavours of gelato anywhere.
And finally, I try their Tropical with pronounced notes of tangy passionfruit in the gelato and the added texture and the added nutty flavour of passionfruit seeds.
La Mama del Gelato Anita is located at Central Park, Ground Floor RG15, 28 Broadway, Chippendale NSW 2008.
