Vidoni

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 :)

Gelateria la Romana

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.

Ferrari Natural Gelato

If you take a walk in Vienna you always stumble over new shops and restaurants. Yesterday the Mister and me wanted to go to Kurt (my favourite frozen yoghurt place) but discovered this newly opened two days ago to be correct gelato place! Since we are both huge gelato fans the frozen yoghurt had to wait.

We entered the small shop and immediately got lots of samples to try. We loved the raspberry and nougat ice cream, the dark choco was a bit too intense for us.
In the end I went with cassata and pistachio which both tasted really authentic and delicious.
The Mister had raspberry, vanilla and nougat.
The other flavours intrigue me a lot, for example dolce Samuel which is white choco ice cream with hazelnut crunch or dolce Gino which is ricotta creme with caramelized figs!

I forgot the exact prices but I think two scoops were 2,5€? I will be there soon again and update this post, in the meantime if you crave interesting and yummy gelato don’t hesitate and go there asap! It is located at Krugerstraße which is a side street of Kärtnerstraße near Karlsplatz. They don’t have a website yet so I can’t tell you the exact address but it is not too hard to find :)
