Gelato means ice cream in Italian. Made with milk, cream and sugar, it has fruits and other ingredients added for flavouring. In the last few years, Gelatos have become everyone’s favourite in town. Some historical evidence says that the origin of this frozen dessert was in Sicily, in ancient Rome. Gelato typically contains less air and more flavours, which provides density and richness, distinguishing it from the regular ice creams. In Dubai, there are some authentic gelato shops where you find the best of it. Here is a small list of gelato places.
