Marco Polo 2005-08-03 Review

 

For dessert we headed to Marco Polo, a decent little place that serves Asian-influenced gelato-like treats. While it has a smaller assortment of flavors than most traditional gelato places, many flavors are definitely Asian: lychee, green tee, taro, mango, durian, ... Your enjoyment of these tastes may vary; ask for a sample before you order!

 

Addendum:

eeeeeeeew! durian?!? why would anyone make gelato, for that matter ORDER gelato, of a fruit that smells like the bottom of a garbage bin?

 

Why? So I don't go through life wondering what it tastes like! Durian has been on my list to try for a few years now (since Ben mentioned actually) and now I've finally got around to trying it. And now I can happily go through life a little more enlightened, a little older and wiser, and, as they say, with a little more character.

 

But seriously, I also had another flavor too, and my impression is Marco Polo is good, like most gelato places, but its main distinguishing characteristic is the flavors. And that's what I wrote.

Since this was a spur-of-the-moment post-dinner destination, there was no original announcement.

Marco Polo was great! Mark's just biased because he got a nasty flavor (durian). -ojan



Marco Polo 2009-04-15 Review

 

After dinner we returned to Marco Polo, an Asian gelato place in the vicinity that we went to once years before.  We liked it again.  It's in a run-down shop with only a counter and three tables.  They don't serve drinks.

 

I had the lychee and the red bean gelato.  Though both were pleasing, I found myself getting bored of them before I finished.  This, however, is a common experience for me and gelato.
