Our first few evenings in Doha consisted of walking around the neighborhood. It was surprising to see that the place we are staying in is just a stone’s throw away from a lot of eating establishments. One hot and humid evening, the pregnant woman, also known as ME, wanted something cold so the chubby hubby brought us to a gelato place a block away from the house.
If you have been reading my blog or if you know me personally, you know i love sweet things, especially ice cream. I was actually craving for some froyo but we didn’t have a car during our first few weeks so we had to resolve to walking and hailing cabs to get around during that time. But I was glad I got to try FLOR gelato because the taste was SO authentic and I had no qualms once the guy behind the counter offered us a free taste.
I didn’t know they had this brand in Dubai, but it was located in Aquaventure Atlantis, and I’ve only been there less than 5 times. They are an artisanal gelato and use only fresh milk, cream and natural ingredients. Like I said we got a lot of free taste (happy pregnant woman here), and I had a hard time choosing which flavors I wanted to get. One notable flavor was the melon, which really tasted like sweet fresh melons perfect for the hot summer.
Since I was looking for something sour (froyo sour) I ordered a mixture of pomegranate and tiramisu. Perfect balance of sweet and sour. The chubby hubby ordered the melon and pistachio. Aria just ate from both our orders.
