N2 Extreme Gelato has arrived to Newtown! That means that I don’t have to go all the way to Chinatown for my instantly frozen gelato (and sorbet).
This shop has a building theme going on that is not obviously deliberate: two of my friends have asked if they were renovating.
The novelty is not only on the way of producing the gelato but also in the flavours. You can submit flavour ideas in their website, and can find a mix of conventional and wacky combinations on the menu.
The first time we went we tried the New Kid in Newtown (yuzu coconut sorbet, cocoa [sic] nibs, kaffir lime + coconut syringe, freeze dried mandarin). I loved the crunch of the cacao nibs and the creamy texture of the sorbet. The flavour combination wasn’t extreme by any means but it was nice.

The second time we had a good mango sorbet and the Bouncy Bounty (coconut sorbet + cocoa nibs + shredded coconut), chocolate top, shredded coconut, vegan chocolate ganache syringe). I liked the Bounty better than the New Kid, again loved the texture added by the crunchy nibs and shredded coconut. Also, the choc ganache was awesome!

Our friend got The Big Cheese (vanilla cheesecake gelato, shortbread crumbs, maple whipped cream, salted caramel syringe). He said it was good buy too cheesy for him.
