After lugging their adorable gelato carts around the market scene to great success, Chicho Gelato opened up their first ever shopfront and has since become a Northbridge institution. Having studied at gelato university in Italy, the cold creamy stuff made by owners Carly and Cesare De Bartolo is the shiz-nit. It’s the kind of gelato that actually tastes the way it sounds, made with nothing artificial and only the best ingredients.
Gelato lovers can expect quirky, delicious flavours—like lavender honeycomb, jalapeno pineapple and matcha green tea with caramelised white chocolate—a free-flowing chocolate tap and seasonal specials like the Wizard of Aus themed flavour they've created in collaboration with Fringe this year. It's called the Mango Choc Crackle Pop and it's a refreshing but decadent combination of mango sorbet topped with chocolate crackle popping candy. It's only on the menu while Fringe is on so get down before 16 February to have a taste.
They also do delish Micrology cold brew on tap which you can have straight up or in a float with some of that epic gelato.
