I found phenomenal gelato outside of Italia!
I have been skeptical to try anything that claims to be “gelato.” Yea, I know how prude and snobby that sounds! But can you blame me? Italian gelato is unlike any other.
I went to this Gelateria on the Lower East Side on East Houston Street called Il Labortorio del Gelato. It literally looks like a laboratory. Talk about an appropriate name!
I like to try new things so I decided to try Tarragon and Honey Milk flavored gelato. Wow. Talk about a party in my mouth. It was orgasmic. The two mixed together complimented one another. Tarragon is an herb that kind of tastes like basil and mint with a lemon hint to it. The creaminess of the honey flavor balanced out the pungent minty-ness of the tarragon.
My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
Well readers keep cool in this heat!
Peace, love and No beef (just gelato!)
