Check out these two ice-cream spots this summer
It’s ice-cream season again. (who am I kidding, it’s always ice-cream season)
The temperature is getting hot and a nice scoop of creamy cold ice cream is the perfect treat to beat the heat. Today I’m taking you to two ice places spots that have cult-like followings.
Here are all the details:
HAKIKI TURKISH ICE-CREAM
Shop 1/63-71 Enmore Rd, Newtown NSW 2042
Hakiki in Newtown serves a selection of Turkish eats, but they are most famous for their Turkish ice-cream.
Turkish ice-cream has a history spanning over 150 years and is famously found almost everywhere around the world.
Turkish ice-cream is stretchy, doesn’t melt as fast and from what I’ve been told; the only ice-cream I the world eaten with a fork and knife!
Now, I didn’t eat mine with a fork and knife, but the texture of the ice-cream really does make you want to chew on it. It doesn’t melt instantly in your mouth which gives you more of a bite to it.
I ended up trying a bunch of flavours where all of them are made fresh in-store. The base of each flavour takes up to 5 hours to make; using only a few ingredients. Cream, milk and sugar.
My favourite was Turkish delight. The rose water really came through and gave it a really bright and refreshing flavour.
I also got to try their baklava. A sweet indulgent pastry found across the Middle East and the Mediterranean region.
They have a range of different types of baklava which are sure to be a hit for anyone with a sweet tooth.
606 Liverpool Rd, Strathfield South NSW 2136
Duo Duo was started from two best friends with a love for ice-cream.
They open from 6:30pm every Friday to Sunday, serving their famous deep fried ice-cream in Strathfield.
The flavours available are unique, with flavours such as pandan and coconut, Vietnamese ice coffee and jackfruit. Definitely flavours you won’t find down at your local Woolies.
The pair makes fresh ice cream at their kitchen before breaded and deep frying them to order. What you get is a very fun dessert.
Crispy, hot exterior and a creamy but ice cold interior.
The crust, unlike most deep fried ice-cream is rater heavy because it doesn’t use a batter, but instead a bread crumb base.
I got to try a few flavours out and really enjoyed the selection of flavours.
If their opening time aren’t convenient for you, you can always get home delivery by ordering online!
