Rating: Awesome gelato, if a tad brightly colored and stabilized
Right next to the Chinese restaurants and the Central Market is this award winning gelato place.
They have a lot of flavors, both fairly classic Italian and some more Asian slanted ones.
These brightly colored ones are mostly fruit flavors.
Over here are the more chocolate/vanilla type “heavier” flavors.
This is Turkish Delight, a rosewater based flavor.
48 Flavors tasted great, has nice texture, and a lot of interesting and delicious flavors. The colors are pretty intense though and I asked them if they added coloring. The guy behind the counter said no, but I read the ingredients on their website and well… yes they do. My own Sweet Milk gelato style is pretty technical (2-3 sugars) but these are way more so with a host of stabilizers, emulsifiers, colors, oils, starches, etc in every flavor. It does help with the color, texture, and shelf life, but it’s well… more processed. I don’t really feel I need the artificial flavors or colors. Not sure why they need the oils either. Probably helps with the emulsification (and hence the texture) but dilutes the natural taste a bit.
