Vidoni is a recently opened ice-cream shop with lots of vegan options near Landstraße (next to Joseph Brot) with interesting flavour combinations and a medium offer of outdoor seats.
I love the look of their logo especially their font!
Texture wise vegan ice-cream is of course not comparable to normal ice-cream but what I also like about them is that they don’t use soy milk.
I am not a huge fan of soy milk since it has a very strong taste of its own and distracts the pureness of taste.
The milk they are using is made from organic oats, coconuts and rice which are more flavour neutral in my opinion.
The flavour I had was matcha with lemon, which was really sour and refreshing, while the Mister enjoyed tropic and vanilla.
They even offer delivery from the first to the third district by bike so you won’t have to get out into the heat yourself and enjoy it from home :)
A new gelateria has opened in Vienna and since discovering it last week, I have visited the place already three times.
Gelateria la Romana was founded in 1947 in Italy but came as a franchise to Vienna. Lucky us!
The shop is held in white with cute decorations while the staff is very friendly and seem to be mostly from Italy as well.
Since all the flavours are only written in Italian and the menu with a translation is still in the making you have to ask the staff who will kindly give you lots of samples.
My two favourites at the moment is the one with hazelnut
which totally tastes like nutella and amarena, which contains chocolate and nut brittle.
Not only that their ice-cream is very different, they are the first I know of that offer FREE chocolate to fill your cone. There are two chocolate streams, one with milk and the other one with white chocolate. I even got freshly made plain whipped cream and another time with coffee taste.
Yesterday I showed Coco the gelateria and she was just as delighted as I was.
She enjoyed a crepe filled with vanilla cream and lots of berries for 5€ while I had three scoops for 3€.
The only flavours that did not convince me where the fruity flavours that were too sweet for my taste but the milky and nutty flavours are really great!
I am curious if all the free options, like the chocolate and the whipped cream will remain free or if it is just for the new opening.
First of all I am sorry I did not post in a while.. my internet was down for at least 4 days and having to finish my work for university and working part-time did not help. Neither did the temperatures it is crazy hot here!
40°C have not yet been reached but we have a new record in Austria which is 39.9°C.
So not to go bonkers in this heat I recommend you a place to grab tasty homemade ice-cream with lots of toppings. The ice-cream reminds me of Ben and Jerry because of the generous amount of brownies and swirls and other treats that can be found in this cold darling. It is not common in Austria to find ice-cream mixed with brownies but they did a great job. My favourite is Snow white which is strawberry cheesecake ice-cream with little pieces of white chocolate goodness mhm~
The ice-cream is served in homemade waffles but due to the temperatures and the ice leaking fast from those thin waffles you get them in a cup with pieces of the waffle.
Ice dream factory is paired with the Pure Living Bakery in the building which sells coffee and baked goods. Beware: It can be very hot inside but outside are tables in the shade.
