But another way to cool down in Prague is to head for some great gelato, and by far the favorite choice of locals is Angelato. I can't get enough of it, and on Sunday the line snaking out the door was the longest I've seen so far at either of Angelato's locations. It was at least 20 people long, flowing halfway down the block.
But even though it feels like summer, this time of year in Prague is usually quite cool and autumn-like, and despite the current warmer temperatures, the local fruits in the shops reflect that fact. And Angelato, which makes its flavors fresh daily, also loves concocting seasonal flavors.
That was the case today at the Mala Strana (Lesser Quarter) location, as a wide array of typically fall flavors was on offer. Pictured in the cup above were a delicious fresh pear and white wine (yes, white wine in ice cream) flavor and, underneath, one of my favorites: salty caramel. The salty caramel is absolutely delectable, and the pear and white wine was simply, sweetly delicious. They also went quite well together.
Other seasonal flavors I was tempted by today were poppy seed and plum, mascarpone and fig and cinnamon. And, of course, Angelato's standbys, including the best pistachio I've ever had, not to mention the dark chocolate sorbet, were available, as always.
So, if you're in Prague this autumn or plan to be here, prepare yourself for a treat and check out these wonderful autumn flavors at Angelato!
