Gelatissimo, The Garden-Mid Valley

Gelatissimo – The Real Taste of Italia Ice Cream

Last year Christmas as in the recent Christmas, we had our family trip to KL for holiday. Basically the trip wasn’t like what we normally did, but makan instead.

2nd day in KL, we decided to visit The Garden, a new phase of Mid Valley, a high end shopping complex in Mid Valley. I believe their anchor tenant is Isetan and Robinson, well, I may be wrong.

Anyway, while we were walking to The Garden, I saw this ice cream counter at the entrance. Then I look at my sister, she was suggesting why don’t we give it a try. Cuz, we have tried Baskin Robins, Häagen Dazs & Lekka-Lekka, but not this.
By looking at the choices, do you think we could pick our favourite?? All of us were struggling what to choose.

Taste wise, it’s kinda similar to Lekka-Lekka, cuz, both are Italian Ice Cream. Flavour wise, I guess I still prefer Lekka-Lekka compared to Gelatissimo.

Anyway, who cares right, … as long as am not paying for it… [LOL] cuz, you know what, ice cream alone it costs us RM80+, expensive huh?!

Just like anyone say, who cares, enjoy first… after all it’s Christmas!!!

I tried Gelatissimo once too. Was just ok to me. I would prefer Gelatomio or Lecka-Lecka though.

Hi Celine, oh yes!

Hi Lingzie, I love the mango flavor! :)

Hi Ivy, vKeong, cokeworld citizen no no no.... not 2 cups for RM80+. I was with my family, so, about 7 of us have taken RM80+.

Hi Sugar Bean, ya, they are slightly on the high price compared to Lekka Lekka.

Hi Cookies Cream, thks for dropping. I personally prefer Lekka Lekka compared to this. Well, since this is our first experience, so, we gave it a try.

Hi Christine, hope to see you post about it! :)

The ice cream so nice! looks so much like I had in singapore. Some question, is it ice cream from Italy is very nice? I prefer these over haegan daz / baskin robin. =)

Timothy said...
