I was recently invited to try out Manila Creamery at UP Town Center. They are about to open this October at the Cinema Level of UP Town Center, Katipunan Avenue, Diliman, Quezon City. 

We tried the different flavors offered by Manila Creamery that night. Founded by Jason Go and Paolo Reyes, they learned the art of making Gelato in Italy. 

Yay for gelato! If you are wondering about the difference between gelato and ice cream, well, here are the differences: (1) Gelato is low in fat (4-8%) with more milk, while ice cream is (>10%) with more cream; (2) Gelato has less air (20%) slow churning so it's dense (packed with flavor), while ice cream has more air (60%) fast churning so it's fluffy; (3) Gelato is served at -13 soft structure, while ice cream is served at -18 hard structure; and my favorite part, (4) Gelato has less calories (less guilt, yay).

Here are the flavors that we tried at Manila Creamery:
Mangga and Suman. Sticky rice gelato with mangoes and Visayan latik. I'm a sucker for ripe mangoes and I love trying out everything that would go with it. I was able to try out mangoes with sticky rice but it's my first time to try suman-flavored gelato. I'm amazed that it's really good and that you can distinguish the suman and mangoes. This is Italian gelato with a taste of authentic Filipino dessert favorite.
Davao Chocolate. Davao dark chocolate gelato. Using Malagos chocolate from Davao, dark-chocolate lovers would love the authentic slightly-bitter-yet-indulging taste of dark chocolate.
Kinder Bueno. Hazelnut gelato with milk chocolate. One bite and I was like, "OMG! KINDER BUENOOOOO!!!" They use imported hazelnut to achieve that taste of Kinder Bueno.
Truffle Mascarpone. Mascarpone gelato with white truffle and Himalayan pink salt. For the classy palate. Truffle! 
Ube Langka. Langka gelato with ube halaya. I'm not much of a fan of langka but this combination was really good and delightful. 
Go Mango. Mango gelato with white chocolate covered poprocks. Going with the Pokemon Go craze, they came up with Go Mango which reminds you of Pikachu. I love how it tastes of fresh ripe mangoes. 
Ube. Tastes like ube halaya. Yum!
Blueberry Cheesecake. Cheesecake gelato with blueberry jam and graham dust. I love the sweet taste of the blueberries and cheesecake.
