i've been on this ridiculous gelato craze partially due to this board. through it i read a jonathan gold article about BULGARINI GELATO in pasadena in the courtyard of the pacific asia museum.
they studied with some of the best guys who still make from scratch in italy and he's italian and her italian is beautiful.
okay, it's very, very good gelato, made in the old style, no PreGel (http://www.pregel.it/eng/home.asp).
bacio - they get their hazlenuts from oregon, it has a complexity and texture that's unreal
pistacchio - pistachios from northern italy, not too sweet, she makes a paste from the pistachios and it's so intense
mango - the texture almost brought me to tears, i had to buy the $13.50 container to take home. the flavor is like biting into a mango without getting all the threads stuck between your teeth
open fri, sat, sunday only 11am-6pm.
the courtyard is an incredible place to sit and relax.
if you like real gelato, run, don't walk.
how far away is friday?
