Gelato Classico, Mountain View, California
It’s a battle of flavors at Gelato Classico, but no matter what flavor you choose, people say it always ends up being voted #1 best ice cream. My curiosity is at an all-time high. I’ve been an avid fan of Bi Rite Creamery for the longest time, and I need a change in ice cream texture. Call it a search for Gelato.
Gelato is different from the traditional ice cream. It’s gooey, creamier because it’s ice cream done Italian style. It’s blasphemous to compare Gelato Classico with Bi Rite when both of them aren’t apples to apples.
But just like Bi Rite, I had difficulty in picking flavors. Burgundy cherry? Rum Raisin? More fruity flavors to confuse my senses and further lure me into temptation. That’s the thing with Gelato. In a sunny area like Mountain View, the season calls for fruity flavors.
I somehow settled for Straciatella and Strawberry Balsamic. I can’t seem to stray away from my staple Strawberry Balsamic even at the face of oddity like Ginger-flavored gelato.
Creamy. I feel like I’m drowning in delight and went straight to Gelato heaven. “Venice in a pint”, that’s what it is.
