La Mamma del Gelato Anita, Chippendale.

After we were full with the autumn menu dishes of Devon cafe (read the post here), the gelato in Chippendale was calling us and we cannot resist. It was just a few minutes away and so we walked there to taste a little drop of this super trending gelato place. La Mamma del Gelato. Seriously, everyone has been posting about this gelato all month long!

Located at the back of the new Central Park mall, it has a very nice interior decor. It is surrounded by high ceiling glass windows with a very pretty tiles.

It overlooks the beautiful park right behind the Central Park mall. As you can see, it was a nice bright day, so hanging out here to cool yourself down with their awesome gelato sounds really nice.

First selections of their gelato and sorbet...

Their second selections. You can choose between small, medium or large (1 choices, 2 choices and 3 choices of flavor), so we go with the medium one. The staff was very friendly and they gave us a few flavor to sample before we buy. 

We got to try the Loaker flavor, which was very nice, although it was very sweet for my palette as if you are eating the filling of a Loaker wafer as an ice cream. Yum.

Then we tried the Creme Catalana, which tasted like frozen crème brûlée complete with its crisp burnt sugar on top. It was nice, but it wasn't what we were looking for.

After tasting a few more samples, we finally go with Cookie Man and Mascarpone, ricotta & strawberry. Cookie man was amazingly tasty with broken pieces of I-don't-know-what-cookie, which is not too sweet and the Mascarpone, ricotta & strawberry was very refreshing and not too sweet, perfect to neutralize the chocolatey-ness of the Cookie man.

Even more amazing, they have one display fridge full of frozen yogurt toppings. And even more amazing, when you buy yourself a cup of frozen yogurt, you get to choose UNLIMITED TOPPINGS. Definitely coming back for this!

We shared this three ways, and we still can't finish it. It was great, but we were too full and the staff gave us a very generous scoops. I love you.
