La Casa Gelato in Vancouver is world famous for their 218 flavors of ice cream and their home made waffle cones. They seriously have all kinds of flavors--both great and horrible.
They have everything from the most original flavors of chocolate-infused, to nutella-infused, wild fruit flavors like dragon fruit, lactose free, sugar free, liquor-added etc.
I ended up having the rather-ordinary raspberry cheesecake ice cream but it was del-e-cious!
But sadly, I realized that La Casa is also in the most sketchiest area for an ice cream place.
My friends and I began heading to the place around 7:30 and we had to walk through a light-less village to finally find the gigantic pink building with horrible lightings.
But the trip was worth it.
You could taste as much as you wished and I definitely took advantage of this
To purchase the ice cream, they give you a chip that resembles the one you would find in a casino. You then exchange it for a scoop of ice cream.
I really wanted to try all of their 218 flavors.
But, that would have been kind of rude. And also, I doubt that I would've liked all their flavors; such as liquorice, balsamic vinegar, and pear with Gorgonzola blue cheese.
I tried wasabi ice cream from 'Sundaes & Cones' and I surprisingly liked it. I have also tried White Miso ice cream from 'Spot Dessert bar' by Pichet Ong and I loved it. But 'Pear and Gorgonzola blue cheese' ice cream was just too much for me to handle.
I seriously think they just made those for fun.
But overall, this place was great! They have many other products as well, such as the ice cream cake (of course), nougat, cannoli, kettle corn, etc.
They really need to work on their writing though: I found that one of their ice cream cake read $425. I mean, it was bigger, but how could it jump to be $400 dollars more?
The cake turned out to be only $24 or $28. (How can you even write to make a 28 look like a 425 anyways?)
Their ice cream wasn't the best I have ever tried, but was nonetheless delicious. Besides, i think the best part about La Casa is the overall experience of the place.
There's something so incredible about finding a place like this in an area where you don't know where you are
What do you think about La Casa? What do you think about their blue cheese ice cream?
