The Sweet Life

So many flavors, so little time

Yamanouchi's gelato shop has been in business for nearly four years, and is the prototype for a chain that certain Asian investors are planning on opening up around the country. Yamanouchi says that these investors have purchased the entire U.S. license for Mondogelato, an Italian gelato maker whose product they most admired during a fact-finding trip to Italy.

Definitely, Angel Sweet's doing something right. Of the 10 or so types of gelato I had there, none of them disagreed with me. AS' coconut lacked the aftertaste GS' had, and was packed with even more coconut shavings. And AS' strawberry and pineapple had a wow factor that GS' did not. As for Italian faves like the custardy zuppa inglese and the berry explosion of frutti di bosco (fruits of the forest), tangy from the seeds of a half-dozen berries, they'll have you on your knees declaring that Yahweh must drive a Ferrari, wear mousse in his hair, and go by the handle "Marcello."
