Weird (and Delicious!) Gelato at Mizzica Gelateria & Cafe

Mizzica Gelateria & Cafe
: 307 Queen Street West, Toronto

Mizzica recently opened a second location at Queen and John, and clearly they haven’t missed a step because the gelato I just tried was absolutely fantastic.

Actually, I think this flavour perfectly encapsulates Mizzica’s greatness.  It’s a bit of an odd one, and almost certainly wouldn’t have been much more than an interesting novelty at any other gelato shop.  Here, on the other hand, it was surprisingly delicious.

That flavour?  Gorgonzola, mascarpone, and pistachio.  Yes, that gorgonzola, the famous Italian blue cheese.

It’s honestly shocking how delicious it is.  The gorgonzola flavour is actually quite pronounced, and yet it totally works as part of this sweet scoop of gelato.  I couldn’t even tell you why or how.  It shouldn’t.  But it does.

The sweet pistachio paste that they top it with complements it perfectly, and the whole thing is luxuriously creamy and so much better than you’d imagine.  With a lot of weird flavours like this, even when I like them, I think, well, I never need to have that again.  But this was legitimately delicious.  I could eat it a million scoops of it.
