I love the theatrics involved with liquid nitrogen gelato. No matter how many times I see it, I still find it incredibly cool. (haha get it?) Once liquid nitrogen is added to a gelato mix, freezing occurs almost instantly resulting in tiny ice crystals and gelato that is deliciously smooth and creamy.
Dex2rose Nitrogen Gelato offer eight different flavours at any one time, with flavours changing every 2-3 weeks.
(milk chocolate gelato infused with peppermint oil and churned with crunchy brownie chunks, topped with fresh vanilla cream)
I was hooked after the first bite! Incredibly smooth and chocolatey with a hint of fresh peppermint.
(watermelon iced tea sorbet made from fresh watermelons, limes, mint leaves and brewed tea)
Fruity and extremely refreshing.
(sage, burnt butter and caramel gelato, topped with sticky caramel sauce)
Sweet and buttery with a subtle aroma of sage. However after a little while this flavour became too rich and heavy for me.
(peach and rose moscato sorbet, topped with rosewater coconut cream)
Amazing sorbet! But the combination of peach and rose moscato with the coconut cream was a bit odd for my liking.
Cold Pressed Juice (rock melon, mango, granny smith, royal gala)
Juices here are pressed in store daily with seasonal fruits so flavours are constantly changing. Cold pressed juice apparently retains more flavour, nutrients and enzymes compared to traditional juice. In any case the juice I sampled was very fresh and very tasty.
Cold Brewed Coffee
Containing up to 67% less acidity than hot brewed coffee, cold brewed coffee is naturally sweeter, more intense and has less of a bitter aftertaste.
Located down a small CBD laneway, Dex2rose Nitrogen Gelato is without a doubt a place worth visiting. A lot of testing, tasting and sourcing of quality ingredients is involved with every gelato flavour produced here. It was obvious to me that owners Jesse and Wei Ming are extremely passionate about their jobs. In fact Jesse informed me that he wanted every single person leaving the place to feel happier compared to when they walked in. And this is easily the case considering how amazing their gelato/juice/coffee is and how friendly the staff are. I really liked the space and the layout of this place as it felt like a nice spacious cafe that you could sit down and relax in. What I also liked about this place is how the team here are environmentally conscious and only use reusable bottles for their beverages. (Bottles can also be purchased if you really like them). Note that fresh pastries will soon be available here so that is something to look out for.
