Shortly to follow we chose to go to a store that was recommended for a visit. Located in Brunswick east, we would not have considered to venture to this part of Lygon street for Gelati, but a quick stop into Gelobar was on the list. Slightly disheartened on our experience we were still pleased with our choice of apple pie and Zabiglione flavours. We found this to be slightly more softer and less creamy than that at Gelatissimo, and still had pleasure sitting out side and devouring it all. We think that perhaps with a little bit more clearer signs and some more atmosphere this parlour could become a great place to visit. And if your not into ice-cream well they have mini cakes and slices too, so you don't have to miss out.
This ice-creamery has it's own originality that you can not beat. Living on the edge we chose to get something that was daring and intriguing. A scoop of sticky rice and black sesame ice-cream served with gluteus balls and crushed nuts was surely daring enough for Kylie. The ice-cream was perfect, not too sweet and contained enough flavour to dive in for more. Not entirely sure what the black balls were and am still trying to work on finding that out, but overall the texture was bizarre, a chewy texture like taffy covered in black sesame was definitely something I've never experienced.
Passionflower has an amazing dessert menu and is highly recommended for a visit. If you are not one to live on the edge, there are plenty of other dessert options for you to indulge in, which they call the Western flavours - pancakes, crepes, waffles galore. And if you enjoy your sugar rushes and just feel that you need to quench your thirst why not try there drinks? We had a watermelon and lychee drink on ice served with a scoop of lime sorbet and hybiscus flower. Amazing flavour once again but is very extreme in sweetness.
Now although 3 stops for ice-cream is not too many, neither of us could eat too much more after Passionflower, so our list is still in hand and will continue again in a few weeks, so keep your eyes out for our updates on our adventures to find the best ice-cream in Melbourne. So far we say go to Passionflower, out of all the ice-cream today that is currently rated at number 1 on our list.
