Review - Shiraz Ice Cream




Nothing is better on a hot day than an icy treat, so I’m always excited to discover a new one. The Taste Food Tours crew recently introduced me to a beauty in Merrylands.



On your next sunny day off, get yourself to Shiraz Ice Cream on the main drag of Merrylands, and settle in with a bowl of Faloodeh Ice Cream ($7).



It’s a typical Iranian dessert that has two key elements. The first is Persian ice cream, flavoured with saffron from Saffron Only (read about this company HERE), rose water and dotted with chunks of heavy cream. The second element to this dessert are frozen white noodles made from starch and rose water. This typical Iranian dessert is best eaten in, so you can partake of the two sauce bottles attached to the tables. The red one is sour cherry, and the yellow one is lemon, and they’re delicious over the noodles in particular.



By dining in, you’ll also get an eyeful of some photos of Shiraz; the sixth largest city in Iran. And if the name sounds familiar because of the wine, Shiraz is actually the place where the world’s oldest sample of wine was discovered in clay jars dating back approximately seven thousand years.



Staff are super friendly, so don’t get intimidated by menu items you don’t understand – just ask what they are, and you’ll likely be offered a sample. Next time I visit, I’m going to take a risk and try their famous Carrot Ice Cream ($8), served as a shake - while I'm sure it'll be delicious, it sounds suspiciously healthy.
