Gelato Battalo Royalo: Arte vs. Dolce

So, last week we’re chillin’ like a villain with some super-sweet eats, son! Cuz when it’s 275 degrees in Toronto, you know we needs some ice-cold refreshment. And no, I ain’t talkin’ no ice cream man, bro! I want an orgasmo italiano in my mouth-o! So we’ve found two of the funkiest gelato joints in the city, and it’s all a question of art or sweetness. Let’s break it down:

Arte Gelato (946 Bloor St W)

This cozy corner cafe sits halfway between Ossington and and Dufferin, but they get their ingredients from halfway around the world. Right here we’ve got hazelnut topped with a sweet dulce de leche flavour that’s got some real raspberries thrown right in. It’s like two scoops of funky in Flavourtown!

Dolce Gelato (414 Danforth Ave)

Now, at Dolce on the Danforth, they’ve got more flavours than Flava Flav’s Flavor of Love! There was so many different kinds of chocolate I didn’t know which one to choose from. But I ended up with the cherry chocolate, and then the marshmallow, with some graham crackers on top!? That’s like S’mores Gone Wild, son!

While I could eat both of these gelatos all day, and all of the night, I gotta give the edge to Dolce. Man, you could put graham crackers on a flip-flop, and it would still taste good!!!!
