La Casa Gelato is a large gelato shop tucked away on Venables street in Vancouver. La Casa is known for their wide selection of over 200 types of gelato and their crazy unique flavours. When you walk into the store, you pre buy your ice cream and they had you a token that you exchange with the workers behind the counter once you pick your flavours.
With so many flavours, it is overwhelming to choose just a few. Knowlton and I shared a two scoop bowl and I chose POG sorbet (passion fruit, orange, guava) and he chose espresso with chocolate flakes.
I loved my sorbet because it was fruity, sweet, and reminiscent of my favourite Hawaiian juice. The fruit flavours were all balanced so none of the flavours overshadowed each other. If you like tropical fruit or you have a guilty pleasure for POG, I would highly suggest this sorbet.
The espresso with chocolate flakes was rich and it had a bold espresso flavour. If you are a coffee lover and don’t like gelato that is too sweet, this would be a good option for you.
La Casa Gelato is a fun place to go in the summer and try gelato that you can’t get anywhere else. It isn’t the best gelato I’ve had, but I come back for the flavours. It’s around $6 for a two scoop bowl, so it’s on par with other gelato places around.
My one complaint is that they only have a small outdoor patio, which isn’t enough seating for the amount of people who are always here.
Yes, for interesting gelato flavours.
