Laura and I bought a frozen yogurt in town the other day and then got on the bus to go to work. You’re not supposed to eat on the bus but the bus driver was a friendly guy and we starting talking to him. We told him that the frozen yogurt was not very good and that we were looking for a good place to get some, because Laura really loves it and I haven’t eaten it before so I would like to try it. The bus driver recommend a place called the International Ice Cream house to us. So when I got back to the office, I decided to check it out. And this is what I found out.
The international ice cream house is actually called the La casa Gelato By Internatonal Ice Cream Factory and they have some of the finest gelato, sorbetto and yoghurt found anywhere around the world! They are located on 1033 Venables St, Vancouver, BC and have been there for over 20 years. With +580 flavours and counting Vince Misceo and his wife Giuseppina have done an amazing job.
Even the shop is a beacon for ice cream lovers. The pink building looks to scream at you: ‘ Come in and have some ice cream!’
Don’t you find flavors such as Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry boring? Looking to be at more adventurous? At the International Ice Cream factory you can experience flavours that will make you do the classic double-take: red bean, curry, garlic, wild asparagus and the exotic durian (be careful of this one, there’s a lid on it for a reason). Don’t worry, if you don’t like to experiment you can always go for more mainstream flavours at La Casa: amaretto, hazelnut, lemon and chocolate.
How do you want it?
By the cup, the cone or the waffle, La Casa Gelato has it all. What’s more, the gelato is made from the best fresh and natural ingredients, and a special process makes it silky smooth. Look for monthly specials such as Pale Ale Beer Sorbetto. Doesn’t that sound like the best of both worlds?

Laura and I will definitely go there soon, and hopefully you can join us!
