Riso and Lychee at Ciao Bella Gelato

Melanie Wong | Jun 15, 200510:31 PM

Gelato sounded really good on our warm Sunday when I was wandering around Ferry Plaza. Because there was a long line, first I stepped up to the counter to scan the available flavors. When I saw Riso (rice), I decided it would be worth the wait to try it.

Riso flavor here has a fair sized dose of cinnamon in it. The rice was pretty firm blended into the fluffy gelato. I liked it, but not as much as Naia's, one of the few things I do like at Naia's. The Lychee had bits of fruit mixed in which lightened the texture. Also nice, but second to my favorite at Marco Polo. I had also tasted the Rose, but the sugar was too obvious.
