1033 Venables St, Vancouver BC, Canada
La Casa Gelato is home to over 500 flavours, with 218 on site at their sprawling parlour on Venables Street. This family-run business began as a humble pizza and ice-cream establishment in 1982 with only 12 flavours of sorbetto. Since then, La Casa Gelato's creamy frozen concoctions have included exotically mind-bending flavours as curry, blue cheese, and durian. A selection of low-fat, non-fat, non-dairy, and sugar-free options means that there is something for everyone. La Casa Gelato also creates ice-cream cakes, waffle cones, and a selection of Italian-inspired confections. This dining experience was the winner of the Georgia Straight Golden Plates Award for Best Ice-Cream/Gelato/Frozen Yogurt.
