Top 13 Ice-cream and Gelatos in Dubai


Errday is a good day for Gelato ??

*The below is not in ranking order

Firstly guys – there is a big difference between a gelato and ice cream. Let’s get dem basics right first ?

Icecream – The ingredients in ice cream are first cooked together into a rich custard. After the custard base is cooled, it’s churned at a fairly high speed to incorporate air and increase its volume (cheaper ice creams tends to have more air whipped into them). Ice cream is served at a fairly cold temperature that makes scoops hold together (something like the below picture), and the finished product is smooth, light-textured, and creamy.

Gelato –  Italian for ice cream, starts out with a similar custard base as ice cream, but has a higher proportion of milk and a lower proportion of cream and eggs (or no eggs at all). It is churned at a much slower rate, incorporating less air and leaving the gelato denser than ice cream. Gelato is served at a slightly warmer temperature than ice cream, so its texture stays silkier and softer. Because it has a lower percentage of fat than ice cream, the main flavor ingredient really shines through (a gelato can never really be served as a scoop, it would always have a messy/stringy look who’s shape can be changed)! ?
