Bella Gelateria @ Coal Harbour

January 26, 2015

"Erin Gone Bananas": Alunga milk chocolate and Venezuela dark chocolate made w caramelized bananas and spiced rum, served w a half slice of Erin Ireland's "To Die For" banana bread - 2

J's comment > not bad; lovely banana flavor in the hot chocolate; not too milky, although didn't get the rum; banana bread slightly overcooked, stiff, banana flavor not too strong; Available until Feb 14

James Brown: Alunga milk chocolate and Equateur dark chocolate mulled w nutmeg, cloves, star anise, and cinnamon, served w a chocolate gelato cookie - 2

J's comment > not bad; slightly stronger flavor of dark chocolate than the one above; spices visually evident when hot chocolate was stirred, but flavor wasn't too strong of any of them; gelato cookie was soft, not a fan

Akbar Mashti: Rosewater, saffron, pistachio, cream gelato - 2

J's comment > same akbar mashti gelato as I've tried in the past at Bella's so props for consistency; excellent balance of saffron (ie not too strong), which is great for me as I'm not a fan of saffron at all
