Standing in line for a cool and silky gelato, feasting your eyes on the jewel-like array, and trying to make up your mind before you get to the front of the queue, is one of our most beloved London summer rituals.
While so many of these rituals have been suspended (or, if you like, frozen in time), Gelupo is keeping the gelato spirit alive through the strange days of lockdown.
Gelupo — little sister of the big bad Wolf, Soho restaurant institution Boca di Lupo, (meaning: the Howl of the Wolf), has been serving up the best gelato in London for ten years this summer, and they have no intention of stopping now.
They are taking orders, and from 1 May will hand deliver to London postcodes. Be it by bicycle, motorbike or car, they will bring freshly made (less than a day before delivery) gelato to your door.
You can take your pick from favourite flavours such as bitter chocolate, ricotta sour cherry, raspberry, coconut, and pistachio — and ice cream cakes are also on the horizon, for celebrations at home. It’s time to make some space in the freezer.
