Vico Italian (Gelupo) – London Cambridge Circus/Shaftesbury Avenue

Finally taking a break from crocheting granny squares. I have 39 out of 100 squares to go and also thE border of the blanket. Wrist is going to break any moment now. ^_^
It’s been about a month and a half (or longer) since I lost saw Miss Money (she still hasn’t given me her holiday food pictures yet. Humph) who went to Shenyang, China her hometown, Mr Games and Mr Sensible. Anyway, we went out and had a burger at Honest Burgers – still love the chips! Afterwards we walked around looking for a coffee and dessert place and a place that was gluten free. Mr Sensible is on a gluten free diet – not sure why, he must have told us, but I have forgotten. Gluten free bread doesn’t look nice by the way!
I suggested we go to Cafe Vergnano 1882 on Charing Cross Road but that was closed when we went pass there. So Miss Money suggested we go to the new Italian place which was a little further up the road… The old Pizza Hut is replaced by this place called Vico, an Italian street food restaurant. One side is the ice cream side and the other side is the hot food.

This is from the ice cream side – Gelupo.

It was a hard time choosing from all the flavours that were available! Small cups are £3 – but it is worth it.

Mr Sensible chose the pistachio flavour. He didn’t want the biscuit because of his gluten diet.

Miss Money tried to convince to have a different flavour but I stuck to my choice – pumpkin and cinnamon. It wasn’t too sweet and I couldn’t really taste the cinnamon although very filling! 

Mr Games had the snickers flavour on a cone.

And Miss Money had a coffee, a coffee with ice cream called affogato. I got a sip of this and I loved it! Lots of strong coffee and a very creamy ice cream taste. Yummy!

This is from the other side. Think I might have to do a part 2 on Vico… have to try out the hot food. ^_^

My geeky rating (on the ice cream): 5/5
Good points: 
– Very tasty ice cream!
– Polite service
– Sink is available to wash your hands! 
Bad points:
– A little pricey

Address: One Cambridge Circus, Seven Dials, London WC2H 8PA

Miss Money said we needed to go for a walk, so we cut through Covent Garden and walked along Waterloo Bridge. The London Eye was lit in different colours because of the rugby. Beautiful.

I also think this is a silly artistic work in Trafalgar Square… two fingers pointing at each other. Very pointless and looks kind of “wrong”. It’s easy to think that these are two male genitalia pointing at each other. ¬,¬” LOL!!!!
