Chico is a gelateria shop specialise in fresh, daily churned gelato with over 20 rotating creative and seasonal flavours. It stated with Chez (The Craftman) and Carly (The Chemist), they are inspired by the gelato movement in East London, UK than decided to learn gelato making in Bologna, Italy. After taking a sabbatical leave to devour the best food in America and South America, they decided to buy their first gelato cart from Italy and settled in Perth. Chico officially launch in January 2014 and now they finally opened their first store in Northbridge area.

The gelateria shop it self was colourful, vibrant and fun. Outdoor and indoor seats available even though indoor seatings are fairly limited. Their prices ranges from $5 (1 scoop), $8 (2 scoop), $10 (3 scoop) and $20 (Take Home).

One of their most popular flavour is Fig, Mascarpone, Balsamic & Caramel, it was very sweet but when the mascarpone and balsamic flavour kicks in, it neutralise the sweetness and left you with creaminess in your mouth. After trying some of their flavours, I finally ended up with Pandan & Roast Peanut Brittle and Black Sesame. Both flavours are really subtle and light but remain creamy.

I also tried their Green Tea & Caramelised white chocolate and overall I think their flavour was subtle, light, enable you to eat 2/3 scoop of gelato on your own. Their service was patient, friendly and helpful. Definitely worth the visit if you are in Perth, specially in the hot weather.
