Espresso and Matcha's Foodie Odyessy - Melbourne Day 2 After Dinner : Spring Street Grocer

On our way home after the delightful French dinner, we noticed a bright neon Grocer sign, bustling with patrons. Having the impression that grocers would normally not be open that late at night, we were intrigued.

It was only after noticing the bright Gelati sign in the corner that our curiosity was satisfied.

The gelato was stored in the traditional metal canisters akin to what Gelataria Cremona had.

As a result of this, we had to resort to the paper sign to make our decisions on what flavours to order.

Between the two of us, we got a 500mL container takeaway.

The three flavours we picked included matcha with sesame, mascarpone with coffee and fleur de latte.

The matcha, whilst strong in green tea flavours was also very very sweet. I had also wrongly assumed that the sesames would be served ground up, but this didn't happen to be the case. Nevertheless, I was able to appreciate the fragrance of black sesame when munching on them. As for the Fleur di Latte, I had also assumed that "latte" was a reference to the coffee. Clearly it was a reference to milk, with Fleur di Latte being quite a renown cheese. My companion found it very agreeable and ate all of it. As for the mascarpone with coffee, that was my favourite of the three flavours because of its strong coffee flavours and smooth texture. Overall a wonderful way to end the night.
