Ok, this may seem a little silly to some people about how excited I was to come across this Gelato Cafe, but I haven't had Ice Cream since I got to Vancouver. Why? Because I have dairy allergies. It was fine back home, I could have little bits of stuff here and there, but for some reason I'm very allergic to dairy products over here. No big deal, I really don't mind for the most part.
But I was very happy to find Gelarmony on Robson street has an amazing selection of dairy free ice creams and sorbets... which I'm sure anybody in the same position as me, as well as vegans, will know how little choice there can be sometimes (note to vegans: I'm not exactly sure what the gelatin situation is in their gelato?).
This place was pointed out to me by a friend who lives nearby and as I bee-lined for the chocolate soy the man behind the counter informed me that the entire freezer shown below was all dairy free. Yippee!!!
Below is my 'usual'... Chocolate Soy with Guava Rosa and Green Apple sorbet. Fantastic.
The above photo was taken in my new apartment...this is the view from the kitchen table where I will be eating breakfast every morning (and more dairy free gelato... yeay!). More on that soon.
Gelarmony is located on 1222 Robson St. Go Check it out if you're near, it's fantastic :)
