Messina *

Crowned as my favourite gelateria in Sydney,
I have been meaning to visit their newest branch in Surry Hills for a while.
Despite being open for barely two months
it clearly shines a bright mark on the local scene.

A word of caution:
Be prepared to be a tad adventurous,
and expect the unexpected!

crowds gather along the counter mesmerised by endless choices.
if you have time, and the appetite, request a free sample of some flavours.
realistically it just means that we need to make a few more trips to Messina!

Opt for one of the (un)usual classics

or alternatively, refer to blackboard specials for a few limited editions

peanut butter florentine
peanut butter gelato with chocolate coated peanut praline
(my personal conquest for the night 
which may be somewhat fueled by my latest obsession with peanut butter.
peanut pralines were like handmade versions of Cadbury Crunchie!)
