Amorino

My wife and I were invited to another awesome Tabelog event – this time at a new gelato parlor on 18th & 8th called Amorino.

This place is known for its beautifully crafted cones that look like flowers, and their unique flavors like pistachio and biscotti.

If you see this fellow, be nice! He’s the owner, Federico:

Our task was to rate a bunch of flavors on a scale of 1-5 using this nifty score card:

The flavors came around in little sample cups like this:

And we were permitted to ask for pretty much anything else that we wanted to try. Check out this wild mix:

My favorites were pistachio, yogurt and biscotti.

At the end of the tasting, there was a little blind taste test going on:

I got 3 out of 4 correct, with my one mistake being a tech-fault. I wanted to write raspberry but since it wasn’t passed around as a sample earlier, I just didn’t think it existed. So I wrote strawberry instead. Lesson: Always trust your taste buds! I was right, but I was wrong. Oh well.

Afterward, they passed around some of their awesome gelato-filled macarons:

These were really good! I definitely recommend hitting this place for a tasty and unique treat.
