Nardulli Gelato: Italian Dessert, Crafted With Love!

These are the pictures from our trip to see Hangover II. It being an Orange Wednesday, tickets were sold out well in advance: *sad face*. (Meh, apparently it's just like the first one, recycled jokes with a little more cultural stereotyping, see Sex & The City II for further reference..) So.. we ended up here, Nardulli Gelato, The Pavement, off Clapham Common. Italian ice-cream & coffee, brightly-lit neon design, 1950s decor, & a great choice of colours & flavours..
Cone or cup? I opted for the cone. (It might have been even better if they'd had chocolate-dipped cones, or sprinkles.. but perhaps that's more of an American aesthetic.) Nardulli's is classic European, with a good balance of modern understanding & advertising to appeal to a number of tastes...
How did I not notice they had After Eight flavour until seeing this photo?! Ceri had Nutella, which was good, although not quite as chocolatey or praline-based as we might have expected; a good swirl of the chocolate spread through the gelato would have put the cherry on the cake, so to speak. Craig had hazelnut, which I think we all concurred was the best choice, a lovely prominent nutty flavour pervaded the creaminess. Neena put together her own "mocha" inspired dessert, with a scoop of chocolate & a scoop of coffee. I'm not the greatest fan of chocolate ice-cream, although apparently this was one of the best; the coffee however was particularly good, with real coffee beans adding a crunch to the cream. Finally, I had rum & raisin, a classic combo: juicy fruits, delicately laced with rum. Perfect for a midweek treat. Next week, back to the popcorn & wine, as we try to score cinema seats..
