It's no mystery that we're a fan of sweet treats around these parts. And thanks to our last Best of Dallas issue, it's also no mystery that we dig on the Natsumi gelato. We've given props to the
organic partially-organic gelato purveyor for hand-cranking flavors that taste so much like the real thing it's sorta dumbfounding at times.
Oh sweet seedstuff, it's good. It's so wrong it's right. It's so confusing it's perfect. The gelato tastes like a sesame seed. It's creamy and sweet but also nutty...in a savory kind of way. I went back for a tasty little 1-20-09 celebration last night and tried it again to be sure. Yep. Still amazing. The shop says customers are settled in two camps: lovers of the black sesame and those that are pretty freaked out by it, but overall the response has been positive.
