Giapo, Auckland


Suitable for all ages (although see notes below)

Children and adults who are happy to forego the usual Tip Top flavours of ice-cream and instead test their tastebuds should experience Giapo for some ice-cream fun.

Unlike a typical ice-cream shop or dairy, Giapo doesn’t have a display of their daily flavours for you to look at, instead you decide by trying! You will be asked if anyone in your group has allergies and then be given a selection of the daily flavours to try. There’s a mix of fruity, creamy, nutty and bizarre, hopefully something that will tickle everyone’s tastebuds. Portion sizes are large so keep this in mind and prepare your kids to agree on one flavour to share if necessary. It’s also a lot more expensive than your average dairy 2 scoop ($10 for a basic waffle cone) but you’re paying for a unique experience; as well as taste testing, ice-creams are decorated with lavish toppings (that you also get no say in but that can be created according to allergies) and you’re presented with a piece of artwork in the form of an ice-cream cone.

There is limited covered seating.
