Olive Oil, green tea and sweet potato, these are a few of the almost 200 flavors you will find at Il Laboratorio del Gelato, an ice cream lab that serves traditional but also very unique ice creams and sorbets! I was invited to take a tour of the store (yes, in the middle of the winter) and invited Laura to come with me, which is always more fun! We saw how their products are made – super fresh and with high quality ingredients – and tried some of the most popular ones afterwards. A fun fact about the place is that even in the cold months they are still working in full power, they are the go-to ice cream “lab” for many restaurants in need of high quality ice creams or custom made flavors! How cool is that? The chef works hard to deliver products that are rich in flavor and taste oh-so-fresh!
We had such a great time and I couldn’t help myself but photograph and share with you guys. The Il Laboratorio del Gelato is located at188 Ludlow St, New York, NY, in the Lower East Side, which is one of my favorite areas in the city to experience the “local vibe”, there are countless options if you are looking for a great place to eat, shop or enjoy some live music! I hope you guys like it! Don’t forget to follow me on instagram @marthasachser and @blognyandabout for more NYC tips and my adventure in the city!
