Warm sunny days call for ice-cream and London has some of the best in the country. Even if you are vegan or vegetarian – there is an ice cream parlour to make your mouth water! Presidential Apartments Kensington is located in the heart of city center which provides an easy access to all the sights that you never want to miss.
Yorica in Wardour Street, Central London is not only vegan but has some of the most unusual ice cream flavours around. Stop off at their parlour to try Mango, Melon, White Peach, Beetroot or Spiced Pumpkin. There is even a peanut butter flavoured ice cream – minus the peanuts. There is certainly plenty of variety as a total of 12 ice cream flavours are available, together with 60 types of sprinkles and 18 different toppings including fresh coulis or fruit such as strawberries, blueberries and pomegranate. All the colours are totally natural.
Not far away is Fortnum & Mason, which offers mouthwatering cocktail floats, sundaes, ice-creams and sorbets at The Parlour. Sit and watch the world go by at the tables outside as you enjoy Salted Caramel, Sandringham Coffee or even Strawberries with 12-year-old Balsamic vinegar to give an unusual taste. Afterwards, have a stroll around the store with its wonderful selection of chocolates, biscuits and other tasty foods.
With ice cream parlours in Soho, Covent Garden and Chelsea, you are never far from an Amorino store. Ask for a cone and you will be surprised by the result. Topping the cone will be a pretty rosebud shaped flower ice cream! Among the most popular flavours are Mango Sorbet, Pistachio and Hazelnut (also known as L’Inimitable). Unusual flavours are often available such as lime and basil sorbet which is incredibly refreshing on a hot day.
Wanting something even more unusual while staying in Aparthotels London and exploring the delights of Covent Garden? Stop off at La Gelatiera for something special. No two days are ever the same at La Gelatiera as this artisan ice cream company likes to be different. As a result the menu changes every day and has been known to include flavours such as Cornish Blue and walnuts, honey, rosemary and orange zest, and chilli chocolate! While at La Gelatiera take a look through the glass floor into the basement where all the ice cream is manufactured and see the magic of these artisan craftspeople at work.
William Curley is well known for his incredibly luscious chocolate and patisserie but he also has a wonderful ice cream selection which is worth a visit. Expect to find around a dozen varieties on offer in the café-shop in Belgravia which often include the unexpected such as rhubarb and custard ice cream, jasmin tea and beetroot sorbet, caramelized white chocolate with miso, or tropical mixed fruit ice cream.
Gelupo in Archer Street, Soho is the creation of the same chefs who are behind the Bocca di Lupo restaurant. Don’t expect highly creamy ice cream, as they use only a little milk in the manufacturing process. Here the emphasis is on flavour, aiming to make a dense and not too sweet ice cream. Worth trying is their coffee and honey gelato as well as the new ice lolly range which includes an avocado, cucumber and lime lolly.
A lot many Holiday Apartments in London are situated around these places to give visitors a lavish tour with comfortable stay.
