Well known international holiday International Ice Cream Day is almost here and we have the scoop on a great deal in Abu Dhabi.
Yas Island restaurant Cipriani is marking the coolest date in the calendar by offering half-price off everything on its dessert and ice-cream menu.
To avoid a complete meltdown, it’s a one-day-only, so get yourself there on 21st July to try Ciprani’s fancy frozen stuff, which is apparently made from a celebrated family recipe.
Most recommended is the signature ice-cream à la minute or gelato di vaniglia al momento, made by mixing milk, cream, egg yolks, vanilla bean and sugar in a traditional Italian ice cream machine. Perfect for sharing, it’s usually AED 125 and comes in vanilla and coffee varieties.
If you fancy something lighter, go for refreshing sorbets in lemon, strawberry and passion fruit flavours (AED 85).
Maggio Cipriani, a fourth-generation member of the family, believes eating ice-cream is a trip straight back to childhood. “I think we all go back to being just kids for a moment and the fact that it is typically shared, brings diners even closer,” she says.
