Gouda is famous for its cheese but I discovered something even better – David’s Gelato! This place does AMAZING gelato and sorbet with really unique & interesting combinations. For example, he had a sorbet called Thailand which is made up of mango, coconut & a spicy pepper. I chose the vanilla gelato with homemade raspberry compote, cookies and white chocolate. I wasn’t sure about the combination But it was incredible and had a delightful crunch to it. My daughter had the passion fruit & apricot and raved about it. My husband had the pistachio and he said it was even better than De Lelie’s pistachio ice cream! And the cone was so light and melted in your mouth. Loved it.
This place has over 100 flavours and has new flavours almost weekly. What an avant-garde gelato creator! I was curious about how fresh and pure the gelatos were that I went onto his website and this is what I found out!
David, the owner who is currently in his late 20’s went to Italy in 2012 to learn how to make ice cream and in 2013, he opened his gelato shop in Gouda!
He believes in using only the best ingredients so he sources from all over the world. The fresh fruit is peeled by hand and the milk comes directly from a farm less than 3 minutes away.
You can even hire David’s 3-wheeler ice cream truck for parties, weddings or business functions. Of course, he does wedding ice cream cakes and he even custom makes ice cream for restaurants to suit their menus.
For the address and opening hours, go to http://www.davidsgelato.nl. By the way, it’s open seven days a week from March to October and it’s located in the centre of Gouda.
