New flavours at Sydney gelateria

New gelateria Tasty Towns will open in the Rhodes Central complex on Saturday with a range of exotic flavours on offer.

But a plan to hand out free scoops has been canned due to Covid. 

Tasty Towns will offer hand-made gelati, sorbets and macarons, all made in-store daily for Sydney inner west sweet tooths.

Specials such as chocolate gelato with Sichuan pepper and lemon meringue pie gelato will rotate on the menu fortnightly.

Classics such as fior di latte, hazelnut, pistachio and salted caramel, as well as popular flavours like cremino, milk tea and speculaas will permanently feature on the gelato menu,  alongside seasonal sorbets, providing a plethora of flavours to choose from.

Inspired by cult Melbourne gelateria Pidapipo, owners Thomas and Wilke decided to bring their gelato-making dream to life by studying the art and craft of making gelato from scratch at the Carpigiani Gelato University in Anzola delle Emilia, Italy.

“We’re so thrilled to open our very own gelateria in the fast-growing Rhodes dining  precinct,” said Wilke. “It can’t be denied, gelato brings smiles to people’s faces. Lockdown has been hard on so many people so, at the very least Thomas and I hope to bring a small moment of well-deserved happiness to the inner west community.”

In the traditional Italian style, Tasty Towns uses only fresh fruits for its sorbets, which are all natural and vegan friendly. Produced in small batches at the optimum temperature, the gelato is made with minimal intervention and wastage.

The store will also serve specialty coffee from Double Roasters in Marrickville. 

Tasty Towns will be open daily from 7am-10pm Monday to Friday and 11am-10pm at
