Gelato Messina make all of their gelatos and sorbets from scratch using raw and natural ingredients and have had queues out the door since opening up on Smith Street in Fitzroy. All of the current sorbet flavours (in the first cabinet) are vegan and the ones we tried were sensational.
We sampled the 'Salted coconut and mango salsa' flavour, which is reminiscent of salted caramel and unsurprisingly, incredibly delicious. The 'mango' flavour was also top notch and surprise, surprise tasted of unadulterated mango! Just be careful about visiting on a hot day... you'll be in for a daunting wait out the door and down the street.
The full vegan sorbet list is as follows:
- Salted Coconut and Mango Salsa
- Blood Orange
- Chocolate Sorbet
- Pandan & Coconut (pandan is a green asian leaf used in asian cooking)
Prices: 1 scoop ($4), 2 scoops ($6), 3 scoops ($7)
