“Gusto has the best gelato I have ever tasted!!”
“The best gelato you can find in Bali!”
“Best ice cream not only in Bali, it is world’s best!”
“It’s soo delicious I cant believe it. Better than in Italy.”
And the words go on and on…
Well.. That pretty much sums up what I got when I stumble across Gusto Gelato & Caffè reviews in both Trip Advisor and Foursquare. It was Sunday evening & the summer heat was terrible I can’t stand sitting down on the sea shore. So, I looked for a place which sells gelato, specifically, since I’ve never tasted one and would love to try. And it seems quite clear that people who go to Gusto Gelato & Caffè are satisfied and hooked by it.
I was like : “What kind of place is this? Could it be possible that ice cream tasted so good?”
Okay then, we decided to take a try. What makes me surprised is the fact that Gusto Gelato & Caffè is not even located in a strategic area. Their location is a lil bit out of the way. I mean, unlike any other dessert stores you can find in Kuta street, you should look for this store instead. Not just crossing by it accidentally and take a step inside. But still, people come and go so fast. The seats are never empty.
About the gelato… Later I found out that gelato is not just the Italian word for ice cream. They are two different things. For me, gelato has a higher density texture than ice cream. And less fat too.
I had strawberry & soursop flavor, while Fred had mango & soursop. Both of us prefer a ‘sour’ taste that day. And….yeah, people’s right. It tastes………. so damn good. It’s like, I can really taste the real strawberry & soursop. Unlike any other ice cream that use artificial sweeteners and flavorings, Gusto Gelato use only fresh ingredients. Wild! I know.. I know..
Anyway, I also found out that Gusto Gelato is run by Italian & French couple. No wonder it tasted that good, huh? They also serves coffee & fresh pastries which are, I’m sure, undoubtedly good.
Hey, been to Gusto Gelato before? What’s your favorite? Here’s the little secret. There’s this Pistachios gelato which will only be served every Tuesday.
