Belle: When news hit that the cult following gelato store; Gelato Messina was to open locally in Parramatta, The Lamstock crew were ready to get our hands on some gelato ASAP. I am an advid follower of their Instagram account as they are always coming up with unique flavours. Check out our unique experience earlier this year when they presented the salmon and cream cheese flavoured gelato at the Ryvita Masterpiece event.
Located on the corner of Church Street and Philip Street this store is not hard to miss. We arrived at 4.30pm for the 5.00pm opening and the line was starting to grow already. We can imagine the long lines for the nights to come.
To celebrate their new store, the special flavour of the day was their ‘East meets West’. Labneh and pistaciao with fig and date jam. The flavour is an ode to both the multicultural cross section that is Parramatta.

We decided to test out the special flavours for the day and got three scoops ($7); East meets west, Ode to Zenos and Alfajores.
We couldn’t leave without taking some home as well.
