Nice Cream on Abbot Kinney

Ben7643 | Feb 22, 2009 05:04 PM

I stopped into Nice Cream on Abbot Kinney in Venice today. I thought I’d give you hounds a heads up on it. If you like a LIGHT and I mean extremely light tasting gelato you'd adore this place. I think it doesn't come close to Pazzo Gelato in silver lake texture wise its just too thin to me. I tried 5 of their flavors, Vanilla, Sour Cherry, Amaretto, Pistachio, Biaca "not sure I spelled it right' it's like nutella. The Biaco was pretty good but didn't have the nutty-ness of other nutella gelato's I’ve had in san fran, the amaretto was not very good I tasted something chemical in it, the vanilla was bland but passable, the Sour cherry was horrible one of the worst gelato's I’ve had it reminded me of sweetened cough syrup, the pistachio though was very good. It wasn't the best pistachio I’ve had but it was definitely worth trying. My friend was vegan and she tried the lemon and the orange sorbetto, she said the orange was excellent. Keep in mind though if you check this place out it has an extremely light consistency not the thicker consistency you find at many gelato places including pazzo. From what I was told there they use organic milk, and many organic ingredients. The color of the gelato’s were pretty natural not that fluorescent green crap you see at many gelato places it’s definitely one of the better gelato places I’ve had in LA.
