Wasabi. Red Beet & Orange. They’re not the top of mind flavors when one says “ice cream”, but now that I’ve tried them both they sure will be!
My husband and I tried out Paradis Natural Ice Cream at Il Terrazzo along Tomas Morato Ave. in Quezon City. Paradis serves natural ice cream free from artificial flavorings and emulsifiers. Their ice cream flavors range from the expected (Cookies and Cream, Ube) to the unexpected (Malunggay, Chocolate and Tomato). It was great that they offered free tastes.
I tried a taste of Malunggay. It started off subtle and then I tasted the kick of malunggay a few seconds after. Woah. I wasn’t in the mood for it that evening, so decided to try the other flavors instead. Chocolate-Tomato was unusual, and I’d definitely try this another time. A quick taste of Red Beet & Orange proved supremely delicious to me having just finished a heavy dinner. It was refreshing and light. I also chose Wasabi because I simply love wasabi.
Two scoops were P190. I got a scoop each of Wasabi, and Red Beet & Orange.
It’s not Pistachio and Strawberry, my friend!
Red Beet & Orange was bubblegum delicious, but became a bit cloying towards half of the scoop. The Wasabi ice cream was beautiful. It was the perfect blend of creamy and spicy. I loved the subtle but unmistakable kick of wasabi in each spoonful.
Next time I’ll try Wasabi and Malunggay in one bowl. Woohoo! If you’re looking for a different ice cream experience, check out Paradis. I highly recommend the Wasabi. It’s perfect after a Japanese dinner.
