The taste of Cyprus licked: unusual ice creams
When it comes to summer in Cyprus there really are only two things to eat, watermelon or ice cream. And when it comes to the latter, the only place to enjoy something a bit out of the ordinary is Limassol.
Long gone are the days of strawberry, vanilla and chocolate. Ice creams of all sorts are now available everywhere you turn but Gelato Mio offers something a bit more unusual – authentic Cypriot flavours.
And the most traditional of all? Perhaps Halloumi with watermelon. It’s salty and although not to everyone’s taste, it’s fans (including me) are huge supporters. Since the inception of the store in 2013, owner George Georgiou has created over 400 flavours. Located at the store at the old port, the innocent looking shop offers items you wouldn’t normally associate with ice cream.
