OMG, I'm in heaven! I first came across Gelato Messina mid last year when I went to Sydney for a work trip. I was staying in Darlinghurst and unsure of the local food scene, I decided to check out Urbanspoon Sydney. Here, I found that the most popular eatery was an ice-creamery, Gelato Messina. I fell in love with their gelato there and then. I can even remember having the Poached Figs in Marsala and Apple Pie.

So, when Messina opened a Melbourne store, I was so excited and had to go. My friends and I unsuccessfully tried to arrange multiple gelato-trying dates, however in the end I was too impatient. One hot Summer's night (note: a weeknight), BF and I went, where we were met by a line of people approx. 30-people-long waiting. The place was packed.
