I've never taken much note of Amorino, an Italian-based gelato company that began opening parlours in New York sometime in the last several years. I thought the gelato was certainly good. And I seem to recall someone saying they serve complimentary house-made whipped cream. But for whatever reason, I had it and moved on with my life.
That all changed this weekend when I decided to stop by Amorino after dinner. I was not in the greatest of spirits, for I had just had some really disappointing mozzarella sticks. Please god, make up to me the monstrosity of those mozz sticks with some good ice cream! I perused the creams and scanned the menu when my eyes stopped: "Coupes Gourmandes," or Gourmet Cups, if you will. Hm, what are those!? Two scoops of your choice of gelato, crunchy chocolate balls, your choice of sauce -- chocolate, Nutella, or caramel -- and whipped cream!
I ordered my coupe with a scoop of tiramisu and stracciatella and Nutella. The coupe was a receptacle of pleasures, and the whipped cream was incredible! Ok god, we're back on good terms! But I don't even believe in you! Hahahahahah.
