What I’m looking for: a smooth, non-icy texture, and flavours that don’t taste fake. Bonus points for ‘bits’ (especially nuts), innovative flavours and a custard base.
Messina is scattered around Sydney (I always order one of their specials. They’ve got the most creative flavours. I also like ‘super dulche’, ‘macadamia crunch’, ‘tiramisu’ and their ‘hazelnut zucotto cake’.)
Ester in Chippendale (‘leftover sourdough ice cream’)
Good Times Ice Cream in Potts Point
Love Crepe in Pyrmont
RiverRino Gelato in Barangaroo or Darlinghurst.
