My favourite thing to do in every city I visit is to just walk around with no plans or itinerary on hand and to stop at any food place that catches my eye. That’s exactly what I did one day when I was in Melbourne.
So when I was walking along Swanston Street (or was it at St. Collins Lane? I can’t remember now but they have two locations in Melbourne!), this ice cream place called Milkcow caught my eye. I looked at their menu and decided to get their Avalanche. It’s made with soft serve ice cream, topped with fairy floss (or cotton candy to my North American friends), and a shot of espresso on the side to pour over this really, really good stuff. As their tagline says, they are “full of that good stuff!”
Well, they surely did not disappoint as they have the softest and creamiest soft serve ice cream I have ever had. Totally worth the AUS$8!
If there is anything I learned from my experience in my quest to finding the best ice cream place is that the best ones always use organic and local ingredients. This is exactly what Milkcow offers.
This ice cream chain originated from South Korea.
Update: When some friends from the Philippines came to visit Melbourne, I took them here and we got a variety to try a few.
