Look what Alexa found! I never would not have discovered the gelaterie in my neighborhood by myself. Fiorgelato is stationed at the second floor of the Puregold Laoag, in a spot that’s perfectly inconspicuous (at least for someone like me who goes to the supermarket essentially to stroll).
It’s not your pricey 100 per scoop Italian ice cream. But at best, Fiorgelato makes sense with the recognizable characteristics of gelato, which approximate to a denser, lower butterfat content kind of ice cream. As yet, I’ve already sampled five flavors — monte rosa (bubble gum), raspberry, sugar-free cappuccino, buko sorbet and tutti fruity.
Never-out-of-fashion bubble gum and tutti fruity succeed in bringing back the thrill of eating ice cream. After Häagen-Dazs was pulled out of Robinsons, not even the much-hyped about Magnum delights me.
Raspberry lacked oomph while the cappuccino was a little too bitter for my taste. I wasn’t pleased with the texture of the buko sorbet, particularly not the crumbly form (I was forewarned by the assistant), but the silky-bordering-on-slimy make. The saccharine taste cuts which I didn’t expect ‘coz it’s supposed to be sugar-free.
Like Alexa who can’t get enough of their chocolate sundae, I’m hooked on tutti fruity and bubble gum.
