Paciugo Gelato Dallas Reviews
Great Gelato Jul 03, 2008
Do you like Italian Gelato? If you have no clue what I am talking about or maybe you answered yes, then you need to try Paciugo Gelato in Dallas. Although they are growing and expanding all across the USA, the one here in the Uptown area of Dallas id by far my favorite one.
If you have ever visited Tuscany, you would get a traditional gelato which was made with milk, eggs, sugar, cream, and other natural ingredients. In Sicily, due to the hot weather, the frozen treat was made with water, fresh fruit, and sugar. The first one I had was a fruit one and I was hooked.
Nowadays, gelaterie (gelato shops) flourish on every street corner in Italy. Modern machinery helps create a smoother consistency by quickening the freezing process. This cool treat is 80 percent less fat than American ice cream. It has a velvety texture that melts in your mouth without leaving any unpleasant coating.
For me, I do not like dairy, so the fresh fruit gelatos are a nice way to enjoy a desert with friends and at Paciugo, they uphold their Italian roots by making their gelato with whole milk and all-natural ingredients. Their sorbets are made with fresh fruit, sugar, and water. They also prepare all their ingredients by hand. There are no artificial flavoring and preservatives in their products. And I promise you will taste the fresh ingredients and flavors in every spoonful. My favorite is the Mango. You can get your gelato in a cup or on a cone. They have three different sizes which allow you to get three or more flavors in one serving. I always get the small and get three different tastes.
You are free to taste any and all of the flavors they have in the case. I would just suggest that you go for it. The prices are not cheap, but well worth it. This shop has a few seats inside, nice and air conditioned, but there are a few tables outside that make for great people watching. I would recommend that you check out their website for all of their locations and stop in and get some.
