Gelato Recs

Khadija | Aug 25, 2010 02:48 AM

I'm looking for Gelato recs for Japan. I'm in Tokyo until Sunday, then I'll go to Kyoto for a couple of days. After that, I've not planned exactly where I'll go, but if there are great gelato destinations, let me know.

So far in Tokyo, I've been to GROM and tried samples of many of the flavours. I've shared 3 small cones (2 scoops each) with another person. We had: a) dark chocolate & fior de latte w/ mint, b) extra dark chocolate & ginger, c) espresso & vanilla. I've also tried a few samples from Pierre Marcolini in the basement food market of Shibuya Station, and had one cone with two scoops: chocolate/orange and caramel. Marcolini was good enough to eat, but could not compete with GROM.
