Gelato Messina, Richmond
What beats having the best gelato in town? Having the best gelato in town in bed. To accompany a lazy night in we popped out for a takeaway tub of 0.5L from a nearby Gelato Messina. The packaging (in a foam box, followed by a cardboard holder) seems adequate for keeping the gelato icy cold and it got home frosty enough. I did a quick blast in the freezer for a little bit which probably helped a little.
In the box you get a choice of three flavours and I directed them towards the coconut and lychee, salted caramel with white chocolate and one of their seasonal flavours in the key lime pie. Ratings of the individual flavours ended up being the usual expectations. Salted caramel was divinely amazing, the lychee and coconut was decently refreshing but we didn’t really care so much for the other one. It was a bit all over the place flavour-wise, the other two were solid.
