basil ice cream: a new obsession

basil ice cream

Sometimes I like to meet Joseph on his bike ride home from work, but it's really just so I can stop at La Casa Gelato for ice cream. Okay that's not entirely true because I look forward to the walk together, sometimes one of our only chances to catch up on each others day.
I won't say this place makes the best ice cream (there are some much creamier options around) but the fun lies in choosing your flavour. With over 218 options, this can take a while. I went with basil which was so delicious — minty and refreshing, with a subtle licorice flavour — I wish I had an ice cream maker so I could try it at home. Joseph went with licorice (which must have had squid ink in it or something, it was so black) and also pistachio. Maybe I'll get wasabi next time?..... yeah right.

I hope you all have a great weekend. It's the first night of the celebration of light here in Vancouver, so maybe I'll see you there?
