Sometimes life works in funny ways. Walking home from town on a fine day I had very strong ice-cream-cravings. I really fancied a big, creamy, soft and sweet ice-cream. Good quality stuff, served in a cone or a little take away cup. I admit, I was starting to get a bit grumpy because I couldn’t think of a decent ice-cream-parlour near my home (close to Place Jourdan). I was on my way to the Carrefour supermarket – no, I didn’t buy a tub of Ben and Jerry`s! – when I thought I was experiencing a fata morgana. There it was in front of me: Il Gelato (The place is actually called Prego!, but they sell I Gelato Ice-Cream). Suddenly I remembered: I had seen the building works take place. (Don’t ask me what was in this shop before, it can’t have been good otherwise I would remember.) I had even told friends about it, but had then completely forgotten. So I went home, grabbed Philipp and off we went for a try.
Trust us: The ice-cream is delicious! If you want a special treat, something unusual and pleasantly different, go for the Speculoos-flavour. It is so good one would like to swim in a bathtub full of it!
The prices obviously were Eu-district-style: 5,60 Euro for three flavours. But my ice-cream made me very happy – and this feel-good-effect was worth every penny.
See you at Place Jourdan!
