Gelarto Rosa has received serious recognition.
The Guardian asked their readers to vote for the best ice-cream parlours in Europe, and surprisingly or not, a Hungarian place also made it to the top 20. This is Gelarto Rosa, a unique place near St. Stephen’s Basilica, and its specialty is their rose shaped ice cream.
The founder of the ice-cream parlour learned the art of ice-cream making in Italy, and it seem tourists appreciated it. In fact, the Italian line is so characteristic in this small shop that most of the raw materials are imported from Italy: pistachio, hazelnuts or blueberries, among others. At least 50 percent of the fruity ice-cream roses is real fruit, and all of them are made without vegetable fat, aroma or added colour.
The Guardian highlights that the icy dessert is beautifully scooped out into petals to form a flower in the colours (or rather tastes) of our choice. They have delicious and inventive flavours (strawberry and elderflower, pear and chocolate, sorrel, poppy seed, raspberry chocolate, and even acacia in the spring) and it’s totally good value for money, too.
Definitely a must-try, if you’re in the city!
