If you want your very own Heston Blumenthal style experience right here in Melbourne, why not head down to N2 Extreme Gelato in Fitzroy. This Sydney-based gelataria uses liquid nitrogen to make its gelato which results in a much smoother and fresher gelato. The gelato is made to order so there is some waiting time. But you can sit on some of their Astroturfed furniture while you wait...
The menu changes weekly and prices range from $6 to $8. Vegans were also catered for today with the 3 Balls in 1 – coconut sorbet with honeydew chunks and sago ($6.00). N2 Extreme Gelato specifies on their blackboard that one ‘scoop’ is all you need. We decided to share one as we had just had a big lunch. The Brokeback Moment – vanilla gelato with crushed honeycomb, choc-top, honeycomb syringe and a caramel syringe ($8.00) sounded very indulgent but we decided on The Spank-apple Tart - milk gelato with pineapple jam and a shortbread centre ($6.00).
This was lovely and fruity and wasn’t too rich. I loved the crumbled shortbread in the middle as it added a different textural element.
