On Christmas Day, after we’d had our fill of super-spicy food at Dosa Hut, a strong gelati lust came upon us.
Knowing places that sell gelati that were even vaguely local were bound to be closed, we headed cheerfully headed to Lygon Street …
… where we figured, Christmas Day or not, somebody would be selling gelati.
Upper Lygon, lower Lygon and even Brunswick Street – we were luckless.
OK, OK – Christmas Day and all, but … COME ON!
Seriously, had it been any sort of normal day we would for sure have hit Hello Gelo right in Yarraville Village.
We’re first-name regulars and enjoy at-least weekly visits.
We love checking what new flavours Scott has dreamed up and really like one of his latest – gingerbread!
Outside of Hello Gelo and taking in the broader west?
Well, there’s actually four gelati and/or ice-cream emporiums on Nelson Place in Williamstown.
We’ve been customers at all four at one time or another over the years.
But we’ve not warmed to any of them.
Outside of those options, I can’t for the life of me think of any other good gelati joints in the west.
