Bar Dolci’s Gelato Burgers

Price: 130 Pesos

Bar Dolci’s Gelato gives your favorite summer childhood treat a classy twist. Their soft, slightly toasted buns perfectly compliment the thickness and richness of their gelatos. Their popular salted caramel flavor (which overpowers with sweetness), these gelato burgers hit the spot.

Chez Karine

Chez Karine’s Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches

Price: 70 Pesos

Flavors: Salted Caramel, Dark Chocolate, Vanilla Bean, and Strawberry

Chez Karine whisked their traditional French macaron away to Antarctica, creating a must-try for the summer. The two finger-thick ice cream filling is a perfect match to the airy cookie, making every tiny bite largely satisfying.

Rolling Dutchman - Original 2

Mad Mark’s Creamery and Good Eats’ Rolling Dutchman

Price available upon request

Mad Mark’s innovated their signature “honest” ice cream for another legendary artisanal dessert: The Rolling Dutchman. This frozen delicacy is definitely meant for the sweet tooth: two Dutch Pancakes covered with Cookie Butter or Nutella and a roll of Madagascar Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. Since we’re on the topic of honesty, I’ll admit I’d have two of these.

Binggrae Korean Ice Cream Sandwiches
