It's summer and hot and what I really miss from Italy is its fantastic ice creams.
Protests and Covid-19 have hit the economy in Hong Kong resulting in many restaurants and shops to close down, including what was my favorite ice cream shop.
So I went on a mission to find another ice cream parlour and I found one that tick all the boxes, which in Hong Kong isn't easy:
✓ Made with fresh ingredients
✓ Good value for money
✓ Friendly staff
✓ Not in a shopping mall which are already so cold
✓ At street level so I don't have to go inside a high-raising building getting lost looking for it
✓ With a decent amount of tables and natural lights
✓ Close to a park so I can get it to take away too and eating in a beautiful environment
✓ Not too sweet (just the right amount)
And I was pleased to see that apart from Ice Cream they sell other things too.
I went to taste it with my family and we all loved it.
A part of me wanted to keep this place secret because egoistically I still want to find a seat next time we go, but as a guide book writer, good things have to be shared.
So here it is: the place is called Gelato Go. For now it's only in TST (close to Kowloon park) but I won't be surprised to see more locations opening in Hong Kong in the future.
