Guess what guess what guess what?
I love gelato, and it loves me back. See picture above. Proof!
Most recently, I loved it at a place called Mio Gelato in Portland, OR.
I hadn't read up on this place before going to Portland; I simply happened to walk by their NW 23rd location, thought "Gelato, yum!" and walked right in. Some reviewers said that the service hadn't been friendly, but I found it to be rather prompt and sweet.
The case was well-stocked with interesting flavors; I went for a scoop of what I am pretty sure I remember as Oro d'Oro (a vanilla egg custard flavor) and the vanilla-caramel.
The Oro d'oro was the clear star, extremely rich and creamy and given a nice little je ne sais quoi-type contrast from what tasted like bits of lemon zest.
The caramel was also quite good, but it got better when the custardy flavor got melty and mingled with it a little.
All said and done? A deliciously sweet gelato experience.
