The Chapel ice cream trail has a worthy new stop. Joining Joylati, Scroll Ice-Cream, Gelato Messina, Fritz, Ben and Jerry’s and New Zealand Natural is newcomer Pidapipo.
Did you know that such a thing as gelato university exists? Pidapipo founder Lisa Valmorbida graduated from there so that she could bring classic Italian techniques to our shores. However Lisa balances the traditional with the unconventional. To celebrate Pidapipo’s new Southside adventures she has collaborated with 90s throwback musical duo Client Liaison on a limited edition flavour. ‘Gelato Liaison’ combines bush wattle seeds with macadamia nuts in keeping with the band’s hyper-Australiana way.
Here gelato is made daily, with ingredients made from scratch in the store’s new laboratory. Taste flavours like avocado and lime, mojito or mint and white chocolate. Aside from gelato, Pidapipo also offers sorbets, frappes, granita and a selection of Winter-friendly cakes and pies. And we suspect the warm-flowing Nutella fountain will get a good workout.
