Aqua S is the Sydney ice-cream place that took Instagram by storm. It was actually designed to be instagramed! The wall of the store is a background representing a cloudy sky painted for the clients to take their photo before leaving.
A part of this wall is covered in printed Instagram photos.
So what is it all about? First the look of the ice-cream is fun: a black cone, a very pretty soft serve with pastel colours, funny toppings such as fairy floss, sweet popcorn, popping candy or a grilled marshmallow. Then the taste: the soft serve recipe is light as a feather, the flavour very subtle and original. When we went (30/05/2015) the flavours were Sea salt, Lychee and Black Sesame plus two blends Black Sesame Sea Salt and Lychee Sea Salt.
I took Black Sesame Sea Salt and I was so excited to have my cloudy photo that I forgot to ask for fairy floss!!! The queue was huge so I didn’t feel like asking them to add it after I had paid… :(
Anyway, I looooved it :) It was delicious even if the flavour is very light. It was the perfect cloudy dessert after a long meal.
See how cool it looks with a cloud of fairy floss!! Geez… I have to go back to Aqua S to take a picture, heheheh :)
Taste wise, I am a black sesame addict. I hope to share my black sesame macarons recipe as well as my BS ice-cream recipe here soon. This version was very mild compared to my “in your face” version but the lightness is very appreciable. The sea salt part was, well… salty but equally as light so the mix was lovely.
Now it’s your turn! Let me know what you think of Aqua S ice-creams :)
