During my time in Innsbruck all I kept hearing about was how amazing the gelato was in the square.
People kept raving about it so I put it on a mental checklist of things to do – although wary of Austrian food, especially after the wiener schnitzel incident.
I like ice cream. I’m not a die hard fan like my friend Rease who will go on a date with someone she detests just because it’s an ice cream date.
My last night I finally made it to the gelato shop. Amorino had a line out the door like everyone had mentioned, which is always a good sign but I remained jaded.
Is it just me, or is my eye doing something weird making me look like Popeye?
That is until they handed me my cone shaped like a flower. I had chosen a cream based gelato and one with fruit.
It was as delicious as it looked. A bit pricey at nearly $5 for gelato, after I ordered I heard this was the real deal and the way to know is if the shop serves gelato with a paddle.
It was better than any gelato or ice cream I’ve had. From now on I’m looking for a paddle.
