Amato Gelato has always been a place I’ve always wanted to go visit for gelato, and I finally got to go! If only Amato Gelato wasn’t so far away, I can see myself there every weekend.
It was so much fun at Amato Gelato, just looking through the display to see the huge assortment of flavours, I did feel like a kid in a candy store – or ice cream store!
I settled for a coconut gelato, and we also had the toasted almond ice cream. The coconut ice cream was alright, I think it would have been a million time better if there were coconut pieces or if it was a toasted coconut flavour. It just seemed be missing something. The texture was really smooth and creamy, and it was really quite perfect!
The toasted almond flavour was really flavourful! We definitely enjoyed that gelato, and would probably get it again. Maybe even the almond avalanche! That looked really delicious.
We had one in a dish, and one in a hand dipped chocolate-dipped waffle cone, and the waffle cone was crisp and fresh. We watched the workers hand dip the cones, and that was an extra special touch!

The Dessert House is one of my favorite places to go in Calgary. There’s quite a few things on the menu that I really enjoy!
One of my favorite things are the deep fried cuttlefish balls. I know, I can make it at home myself, but it’s pretty neat to have such appetizers with a nice bubble tea.
I have a few favorite drinks at the Dessert House. At the end of the year, my favorite drink would be the fresh persimmon drink. It’s really good! It actually just tastes like persimmons blended up!! I love persimmons, and I just eat it as is. I leave the blending to the Dessert House. Another favorite drink of mine would be either the pineapple or lychee green tea (cold) with no jellies or pearls.
I’ve never been a fan of the large tapioca balls or jellies in any of my drinks, but I do appreciate a good bubble tea!
The Dessert House offers an extensive selection of snacks on their menu, from steamed rice crepes to instant noodles! We use to go here for a small dinner, or a late night snack and order lots of delicious treats.
I love tea houses, as they are called. Oolong Tea House in McKenzie Towne offers a huge selection of tea, and they let you enjoy your tea without any problems. This is due to the fact the location is large, so it can accommodate a lot of thirsty guests.
We didn’t actually try tea with tea leaves during our stop at Oolong Tea House. That particular day, i wanted to try their Chai Tea Latte, and just to compare and contrast with my favorite location’s Chai Tea.
I hate to say, but I do prefer my favorite location for the Chai Tea, but I will definitely be trying their teas that uses tea leaves, as that’s what they’re known for. I guess it was silly that I didn’t do that, but I didn’t crave anything else on that day.
