“I scream, you scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM!”
there’s something about sunny weather that makes me want to eat gelato! It totally reminds me of my youth and usually means paying a little visit to the one and only, La Casa Gelato! Owner and founder, Vince Misceo, and his family have been growing their business since 1982 (the same year I moved to Vancouver from Italy). Back in the day, Vince’s shop was located on Commercial Drive (aka. “Little Italy”) and offered a modest selection of flavors, along with an assortment or panini and pizza etc. They have since moved to Venables Street, near Clark Drive, and have garnered international recognition as being one of Vancouver’s best ice-cream parlors. With over 500 flavors, many would say this is gelato mecca…
I always try at least one unusual flavor to indulge my curiosity, and although it stimulates my palette, I am a creature of habit and always stick to my favorites — cioccolato and limone!
