Marco Polo Italian Ice Cream in San Francisco, USA

Apart from my usual visits to Ghirardelli for my hot fudge sundae, the other ice cream (or should I say gelato?) parlour that I love to visit whenever I'm in San Francisco is Marco Polo Italian Ice Cream parlour.

Marco Polo Italian Ice Cream

It's been around since 1982 - :o( I miss San Francisco and eating Marco Polo's ice cream...

Inside the parlour - simple no frills set up, with about 4 tables only.

What's Your Flavour?
Check out the cool flavours!While some are common to us folks in Malaysia, the fact is that they do serve great home made gelato at reasonable prices.

I want them all!

So, what's your flavour?

Lycee & Mango

I usually order my two faves flavour; lychee and mango.  Just as they are flavourful and fragrant, it's also smooth and light...making each bite an enjoyable indulgence.  I especially love eating it when the weather is cold/rainy for an extra kick! :o)
