Bubble Gum Gelato.


With so many different flavours at Amato Gelato, you’d think my daughters would order something exciting.


The gelato at Amato Gelato is more limited in selection than that of International on Venables,  but I think the flavours Amato has are more popular. 


The White Chocolate Pistachio was speaking to me.


Guava Gelato.

The problem with having two daughters is that everything they want is pink.  Pink clothing, pink accessories and practically anything else that comes in pink.  Unfortunately, this also translates into pink food.


Bubble Gum Gelato.  This gelato was a light pink colour and had really intense bubble gum flavour.  Bebe ate half of it and then felt overcome by the gelato and couldn’t eat anymore.  Stomach finished it and remarked that it was very “bubble-gum-ish”.  He surprisingly liked it.  I don’t think it helped Bebe that Stomach said it tasted like her bubble gum flavoured Disney Princess toothpaste.  haha.


My White Chocolate Pistachio gelato was exactly what I wanted.  There were no icky lumps and bumps of pistachio…just pistachio flavour and a very serene light green colour swirled with the white chocolate.  It was smooth and lovely. 

My favourite flavours at Mario’s Gelati are:  Black Sesame and Green Tea.  I particularly like the single portion desserts that they distribute to local restaurants:  the green tea ice cream slices, the hedgehog and bacio nero, the tartufo and the gorgeous lemon sorbetto in the natural lemon shell. You can take a look at the individual desserts HERE.

For some reason, I have always called this Mario’s Gelati.  I didn’t realize it was called “Amato Gelato Cafe” until I looked it up to post it on Urbanspoon.  The link leads to a page that calls itself “Mario’s Gelati” though…so I’m not totally wrong.

Walnut Crusted Chicken Breast – It’s all About the Nut Glue

I almost never order a nut-crusted entrée in a restaurant, since they usually use a sugary glaze to hold them on, and/or feature a too sweet nut, like pecan, or macadamia. That’s not an issue here; since we’re going with buttery, subtly bitter walnuts, held on with a very savory […]

5-Minute Fisherman’s Stew – Give or Take

Of course this Fisherman’s Stew takes more than five minutes to make, and I’m actually referring to the approximate cooking time once the seafood hits the pan, but as they say, it’s only false advertising if someone else does it. Besides, one taste and I’m sure you’ll forgive any temporal […]

Pear Clafoutis – Almost as Good as it Looks

It sounds odd to say that a recipe’s biggest problem is that it looks too good, but that’s sort of the case with this pear clafoutis. Through no fault of its own, this crust-less, custard fruit tart looks a lot sweeter, and richer than it actually is. So, please be […]

Bloody Mary Burrata – An Experiment in Liquefying Salads

I don’t think there’s actually a difference between a liquid salad, and a cold vegetable soup, but if there is, I’d like this Bloody Mary Burrata recipe to be considered the former. Especially since I already posted a gazpacho this summer. But regardless of what you call this strange hybrid, […]

Baked Philly Cheesesteak Sliders – Go Giants!

The Philly Cheesesteak is a simple sandwich to make, as long as you’re making them in a restaurant. To make a proper one, you need a professional meat slicer, and a very hot flattop grill, which aren’t things most people have at home.  That’s why I loved this baked slider […]
