Even if we got free dessert, as we were in the Ayala Triangle vicinity, our visit here would not be complete if we miss out on gelato! After all, who can resist this ice cold treat! 128521 I know I can't but can you?! 128513128540 As I am a dessert addict, I got the

127860Chocolate Therapy - 127775127775127775127775 Chocoholics will dig this treat! It's base is dark chocolate with some
Hints of milk chocolate taste and has bits of nibbles chocolate and cake.

While waiting for the Christmas lights show, Kenrick C and I saw that this place had seats! All other restaurants are crazy packed! We just wanted to sit down so we came in and immediately sat down to occupy this table. We ordered gelatos. Since we sat down, it's considered as dine in, this we had to pay for service charge 128563

I got the ferrero elato while Kenrick C got their espresso ice cream. As what ken mentioned in his review, this ferrero gelato tastes exactly like melted kinder bueno, i mean it's tasted like ferrero but without the nuts, it's kinder bueno!!! 128514

Ken's gelato was very strong. It tasted like strong coffee which i liked too, and the small cup is the perfect size, because you eat it in small scoops and small scoops means more scoops which makes you think you had a lot. It was kinda way too bitter so I tried mixing the ferrero gelato and espresso. EUREKA! Guys, I'm like eating mocha frappucino 128514128514128514 Ken wasn't too excited with the idea nor the taste, but I was enjoying my own mix of things but my enjoyment had to stop because ken finished his gelato first so I had to enjoy the rest of my gelato in just the kinder bueno taste 128546

As we were walking along dozen restaurants to chill and wait for the makati light show, all of them were full...until. we came across Caramia.

The Ferero flavored gelato tasted like kinder beuno! I ain't kiddin'. It was so gooood. One scoop is worth 90 Php. But i would say it was worth 128513 definitely give this place a try :)

I also think there's a joint restaurant named Amici which is italian themed. 128076🏻 will get back here as soon as i can. Because i want to try their pizza 128517

Scrolled through the reviews and yes, I ate the same flavor on the same month! Crazy right?!?! 128514 No, I didn't plan this. It was just pure coincidence that I'm craving this flavor during this month. This is really my cone of happiness. After a stressful week, I really needed this. And the week hasn't even ended yet! 128557

The popularity of gelato, an Italian frozen treat, doubled following the release of the film, Eat Pray Love starring Julia Roberts. I've seen the movie but it was the pasta not the gelato that made a lasting impression on me. I just didn't think there was anything special about it, believing that the only difference it has with ice cream is the price (gelato's tag is not exactly encouraging). But as they say, don't knock it til you try it. So I had my first ever gelato experience at Cara Mia Gelateria.

The moment you enter Cara Mia, you know you're in for a treat. The glass shelves offered an enticing view of gelatos of different colors and flavors. There were the regular gelatos, cakes, and the cake gelatos.

There are so many flavors to choose from I had a bit of a hard time deciding which to order. I spotted little plastic spoons on the side of the counter which could mean one thing: free taste! Unfortunately you couldn't try everything. Free taste is limited to two flavors... that's alright I guess. Anyway, I tried the new york cheesecake and the sans rival. Of the two I preferred the new york cheesecake; it had a fuller flavor.

The gelatos are a visual feast. I was quite overwhelmed by all the flavors that they had on display. Some had fruit toppings, cookies, choco syrups, graham crackers, wafer sticks, chocolate strips and sprinkles, etc.

The Sans Rival (PHP93.71) is really sweet but delicious. Merry Berries (PHP114.91), a gelato cake, is a wicked combination of sweet and sour. Aesthetic wise it was a real winner, a fusion of purple, pink, white, and red colors. It has strawberry, blueberry, and white chocolate toppings.

Choco Sans Rival (PHP114.91) gelato cake is like having a piece of heaven. Every spoonful was bursting with flavor, the kind that lingers and makes you beg for more.

They also have regular cakes, which I wasn't able to try. Will do some other time (because definitely, there will be a next time!)

Chocolate Therapy with cherry on top! 128513128513

Don't be surprise if your order does not have, just snatch it from my colleague's Brazo de Mercedes. 128526

They are consistent in serving water when we dine in. Air-conditioning is not that good... But, hey! How can you eat gelato when its cold? 128513

Forgot to do a review of this last night. Busy bee at work 128029

Got my fave Pistachio gelato, and absolutely loved every chilling bite! So creamy and filled with pistachios. Take note, PISTACHIO. Not pistachio bits. PISTACHIO. There was a whole one in my waffle cup! It's actually my first time to dine here, and opted for the waffle cone. I was expecting the cone shaped one but was pleasantly surprised with the waffle cup. So good...must come back for more!

But maybe next year bec. people flock here at night for the light show. So crowded 128584128517128584

Cara Mia is where I had my first gelato. I remember those days when gelato was not yet mainstream, Cara Mia offered lots of flavors already.

After having a sumptuous dinner at Amici, Cara Mia is the next best thing since it's housed within the same place. My daughter opted for a scoop of gelato, Cioccolato, while I went for an ice cream cake slice - Mango Sans Rival.

The chocolate gelato was really good! Rich dark chocolate taste, creamy and thick gelato, each spoonful was a delight!

Then the Mango Sans Rival - really good! Imagine merengue wafer layers + mango gelato + Sans Rival gelato + fresh mango slices to top it all off! Amazing how they were able to capture the flavors mingling in a Sans Rival cake into a gelato. You'll even get bits and pieces of nuts!

Great way to end a great dinner date!

My new fave: Macadamia! This is my 2nd time having this and yeah, I already deemed this as one of my fave (aside from the Pistachio and Espresso). You could really taste the macadamia nut in this one. There are even macadamia bits! It's really creamy and has the right amount of sweetness to fill you up with some endorphins! 127846

When it comes to gelato/ice cream/anything really, i'm a legit sucker for the mint choco flavor (aside from matcha haha 127861) so when we entered cara mia and i saw their mint with chocolate gelato, i knew i definitely needed to try it out! 128525

Place: the place is well lit and kept neat but you can really tell that it's aged quite a bit. 128514
Service: the ates were nice and recommended their best sellers and whatnot 128514

Gelato: mint with chocolate! Yum! It was generally mint ice cream with chocolate bits. It was alright at 85php but i'd say Gelatissimo over this anyday! 128514 still loved it tho! It IS quite cheaper 128514 (wait, is it? Haha now im not even sure)

Definitely heading back to try their gelato cakes! 128525

Passed by Ayala Triangle and thought that I wanted something sweet, certainly not a regular cake so I choose Caramia. The taste of gelato cake is what I really need.

When I got in, there are a lot of gelato cakes to choose from and it took me aaaaah while to decide. Finally choose Dilusso among the colorful cakes it was hard giving up the other gelato cakes. 128532

Anyways, I've had better gelato cakes in Caramia but Dilusso tasted plain for me. It wasn't the right choice, I wanted to try the others but I'm already full. I guess next time I'll try the Mango Sanscrival.
