I don’t refer to myself as a food-snob but there’s something about ice cream that I don’t like. It lacks depth, creaminess, flavor, and texture. That’s the difference between Gelato and Ice Cream. Ever since Koibito’s Gelato open shopped, just right below where I go to the gym. I couldn’t help but drop by! So I’m sharing with you some of my favorites and recommendations!
What is Gelato?
While ice cream legally has a minimum of 10 percent fat, gelato is made with a greater proportion of whole milk to cream, so it contains more like five to seven percent fat. Because gelato is churned at a slower speed than ice cream, it’s denser because less air is whipped into the mixture. (Gelato contains about 25 to 30 percent air, while ice cream can contain as much as 50 percent air) Finally, while ice cream is typically served frozen, gelato is typically stored and served at a slightly warmer temperature, around 15˚F, so it’s not quite completely frozen.
Koibito’s World of Gelato is located at the ground level of High 5 Square, JP Laurel Highway Lipa, Batangas
Brought my favorite people with me
They rotate flavors, but usually keep the best sellers. It comes in Premium and Regular.
My sister had 2 different flavors. She chose Nutella and Tiramisu
It had real biscuit chunks and you can taste the nutella pronouncely
YOU MUST TRY THEIR BISCOFF MILK SHAKE
It’s not too sweet, and super addicting. It’s a piece of heaven I tell you!
Macho Kid’s favorite is their Cookies & Cream gelato on a stick
If you’re craving for something creamy and cool. Grabe a cup of Gelato from Koibito! It’s having a taste of Italy in Lipa 🙂
I’m not a big fan of ice creams but gelatos… That’s a different story. Hehe. I was in Lipa last month but only for a day and it was for work. Planning on going back to explore more of the place (and do work too, of course) and I will definitely check that gelato place out. I was able to try pala Batangas goto and it was awesome. Unlike the usual in Manila (comes with lugaw hehe), this one is goto and sabaw lang. Perfect na ulam! 😀
