As promised, I made another trip to Il Gelatiere in Panama City and this time I took my camera
Il Gelatiere is at the corner of Ave. Belisario Porras and Calle Porras in San Francisco.
Opposite Il Gelatiere is the a car wash that will put a shine on your car while you are polishing off some of the rich ice cream across the street.
When you enter Il Gelatiere you are going to have some tough decisions to make.
Don’t worry. Take your time. You can have pizza, sandwiches, or other specials of the day, or you can head direct to the dessert area like me.
Since I considered this an epicurean dessert expedition, I decided to try out several things. I think it was also a scientific experiment to see how much stress my belt could handle. My first decision was whether to try the pie or the cheesecake. There were several other cakes and also brownies, but I narrowed it down to those two.
I chose the cheesecake.
Next I felt that cheesecake might need some ice cream and I took a look at the flavors available for the day.
Some days you just have a tough time making decisions and this was one of those days for me. Then I noticed that I could get a banana split and that was my choice. Then came the question of what ice cream should go on the banana split.
You can always go with the standard vanilla, chocolate and strawberry, but I didn’t feel like standard. Instead I took a dip of
(my current favorite), a dip of Mint Cookie, and becoming stressed with these tough decisions, reverted to standard Vanilla for the last scoop. Now I had to decide on the topping (Chocolate syrup, Strawberry syrup, or Caramel syrup). I went with Strawberry.
Cheesecake and a banana split – the perfect stress test for my belt. Now that I have turned this into a scientific experiment I have an excuse to go back and see if changing the flavors has any effect.
Gosh, I didn’t know science could be so much fun.
