Who doesn’t love ice-cream?! Don’t you dare raise your hand! Ice-cream is the melty-marvel that even Eskimos are thrilled to have a lick at. But where you should get your next licking (of ice-cream, please!) can be best found right here. Get a napkin ready, because you’re going to be drooling over this list. These are the 4 international hotspots to get an ice-cream that you’ll melt for!
Ice Cream City, Tokyo, Japan
Well maybe the name is a dead-giveaway, but if you haven’t caught on yet, they sell ice-cream. The city of ice (cream) has some very intriguing and unusual flavors. Say, do you like seafood? Then perhaps you’ll enjoy their eel and sea-island salt special. If that doesn’t float your boat, then give it a skip and try their soy chicken and orchid root flavor. If neither of these are doing it for you, you’ll have another 300+ flavors to choose from. I wonder if they have vanilla.
Perchè No!, Florence, Italy
It should come as no surprise that Italy is on this list. Gelato! Need I say more? The name of the cafe literally translates to “why not,” and if you ever needed an excuse to munch on the best ice-cream, here it is. The Italian ice-cream gurus whip up a batch of fresh cream on site every day. They’ve come up with some ice-cream flavors that will melt in your mouth… literally. How does honey and sesame seed sound? Green tea ice-cream? Welcome to ice-cream at its finest!
Glacé, Sydney, Australia
The name is French, the cafe is Australian, but the ice-cream is entirely international. This cutting-edge ice-cream parlor is gaining major fame for its ice-cream-based desserts. They’ve taken the world by storm with dishes like the bombe Alaska, checkerboard terrines, and chocolate-dipped petit fours. For now they only have one outlet, but we’re all waiting for more to pop up.
Capogiro Gelato, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Have you ever wondered where your ice-cream gets its milk? When it comes to this joint, they have the answer and it is from Amish grass-fed cows! That’s right, the cows don’t use electricity… nah, just kidding, but only about the last part. This artisan ice-cream parlor has an array of flavors that even some Italians might have trouble wrapping their minds around. You can choose Madagascar bourbon, Saigon cinnamon or Thai coconut milk… and that’s only some of it.
