Working from home means that I’ve been able to enjoy all six weeks of the school holidays with my Little Chef. After taking him to a show at the State Theatre, we headed right next door to Chicho Gelato for a treat. Chicho, means “Cheeky Kid” in Italian and Chicho Gelato is a little bit quirky too. They create some really interesting flavour combinations and there are around 20 flavours to pick from. Choosing just one or two flavours is a very difficult job!
The fresh gelato is churned daily and be sure to look out for their inventive special too. Some of the deliciously different flavours they have are “lavender and honeycomb”, “rosewater, white chocolate and pistachio” and “mascarpone and rhubarb”. There are more traditional flavours too and also a few flavours of sorbet.
The beautifully fitted out gelato shop has a VERY special feature… a free flowing chocolate tap! For an extra charge, your ice cream can be coated in chocolate sauce, gushing from the tap.
Scoops are available in a tub or cone. Little Chef chose a more traditional flavour of choc mint brownie. The lusciously creamy gelato was scattered with chunks of brownie. It got two very enthusiastic thumbs up from him!
You can tuck into your gelato in store – there are a few small tables inside. If you want to take away, there’s also seating in the theatre courtyard behind the gelato shop. Drinks like coffee and hot chocolate are also available. Your own Chichos will love this place! It’s yet another gem on the food-tastic William Street.
