Attention, attention! This marks the first I Scream for Ice Cream work outing!
I love my friend Kelsey (hey, and her sense of style - check out her killer outfit) and I'm pretty lucky to have her as a work buddy. SOMA Chocolatemaker is just around the bend from our office, so we got our umbrellas and decided to have gelato for lunch as this is what this blog is doing to me.
I've really only had gelato a few times in my life. Ice cream just seems to be more convenient? SOMA has a traditional selection of gelato - your vanillas and chocolates and nutty flavours - and some pretty wicked sorbet combos. I almost, almost went for a coconut + spice one.
Anyway, the store is great and actually makes you want to sit down and chow down on the chocolate-infused air alone. You have to make your way through the prettiest chocolate displays to reach the gelato + sorbet counter. Portions are sooooo generous. Kelsey and my eyes widen as the girl behind the counter kept filling up our cups!
If you work in the area like we do, make sure to check out SOMA on a lunch break.
Gelato: Vanilla Bean
Taste: Solid 8/10
Price: $$$ - completely reasonable for the gelato pile you get. So generous!
Bonus(es): ALL OF THE CHOCOLATE YOU COULD EVER ASK FOR!
