My Passion in Summer: Ice Cream Shops in London

12 August 2014 Restaurants Passagem Gastronômica - Sorvetes em Londres

For me there is no right season to be ice cream, both winter and summer seasons are perfect to consume it. But in recent weeks had such a great heat wave in London that the only solution was exponentially increase my consumption of ice cream in the week. Meanwhile, I did find several stories that brought the best ice cream in London and visited a few to post here on the blog.

1. Folding

The first time I met Amorino was on a trip to Rome a few 5 years. I was in love with the taste of ice cream and the super soft form of presentation flower-shaped. The ice cream flavors are delicious and it is hard to choose just a few, but my favorites are in store pistachio and chocolate. It is one of the best ice cream I know and it sure is sure bet for a delicious ice cream.

Address: They have 3 London stores – Soho, Convent Garden e Chelsea – and addresses of each store are available on the site this brand link.

2. LAbg – Workroom of Buon Gelato

Read about LABG in one of the blogs that I follow and when I was strolling through Brixton took the opportunity to meet you. We ordered the pistachio ice cream and lemon, and we think the pistachio was the hottest two and two – lemon could be a little more sour -, but what bothered me a lot was the ice cream temperature. So we took the ice cream he was not very cold. All though the day was super hot, but even so you expect the ice cream is too cold to be refreshing. Anyway, is a good recommendation for anyone strolling through Brixton – it is within the Brixton Village.

Address: 6 Granville Arcade, Brixton Village

3. Black Vanilla

The Black Vanilla ice cream is well known in London, and I had read some good reviews before visiting the store in Greenwich. Once there the queue was pretty big to buy ice cream which is usually a great indication, but in the end it was the ice cream I liked least of all I visited this summer.

I find it very sad when you have to try various options of flavors until you find one you like, because for me has to be the exact opposite: you experience various and can not decide because all the flavors are great. I opted for the lemon and chocolate flavors, and that lemon was super boring and chocolate, although tasty, was also very heavy. We were in 4 friends and none of them really liked the ice cream there. So, is not an ice cream shop that I recommend here in London.

Address: They have 2 London stores – Blackheath e Greenwich – and addresses of each shops are available on the site this brand link.

4. Oddono's Gelati

When I went to Sicily last year was obececada the Bronte pistachio, a product which is produced exclusively in Sicily, and is simply divine. During this phase found an ice cream shop – a Oddono’s – selling Bronte pistachio ice cream here in London, but with the rush just not going to know.

Finally this summer I went to the famous store Oddono's which is within the Food Hall of Selfridges. I chose the pistachio flavors and caramel, and it is impossible to describe how good the ice cream one is. The caramel is super yummy, but the pearl is the pistachio which has a pronounced flavor of pistachio but without being cloying. The ice cream is creamy, not too sweet and has extremely cold. Definitely the best pistachio ice cream I have ever eaten in my entire life. Do not miss visiting.

Address: They have more than 6 London stores – dentra them in South Kensington, Queensway e Hampstead – and addresses of each store are available on the site this brand link.
