La Argentina Gelato

I imagine you are sick of seeing an abundance of ice cream and frozen yogurt shops near you. Don’t you want to try something different, something better? Well, lucky you. I just found the perfect place: La Argentina Gelato. Oh my, the things I can tell you about this store. I’ll start off with my personal experience so that you may see my thoughts.

13335744_1186846128021975_1895867993064297707_n I walk in, and it’s like love at first sight. So many different flavors and so many ways to present them. I choose two flavors, for those that want to know it was Dulce de Leche and Chocolate Bariloche, had some friendly banter with the cashier, then at last I began to eat the gelato. Let me tell you, I love ice cream and frozen yogurt, but this couldn’t compare. The texture was very creamy and the potency of the flavors were just right for my taste buds. In addition, Customer Service was superb!

 

 

 

Oh, is this not enough for you to go dashing to this place? Allow me to tell you more about this place then. This shop has a long history since 1985, but they are recently arriving in Houston and Katy. All of their flavors are made out of 100% natural ingredients, so no strange chemicals! 32 different flavors and five different ways to present them, so there is something for everyone. Not only do they offer gelato, but they also offer fresh coffee and Sandwiches de Miga (This is a traditional Argentinian meal, which I would also recommend you try out).

This all being said, I hope you will drop by this place sometime. Especially in the Summer heat, 100% handmade gelato is perfect for this weather!

11223788_10153321295140879_569114754342315574_oA few years ago, Stefano Zullian along with her wife Carla Susi and his sister–in-law Silvana, started to pave the road for making their dream into reality: to have their own chocolate factory. With the advice of Maria Fernanda DiGiacobe, founder of Kakao, the first factory specialized in making and marketing chocolates produced with tropical fruits; these Venezuelan entrepreneurs departed to Houston, Texas to delight us with the best fresh, handcrafted chocolates, made with 100% Venezuelan chocolate, using only natural ingredients devoid of preservatives and artificial flavors.

0024_ArayaChocolate_012014__96353.1406229964.1280.1280Currently, Araya Artisan Chocolate has opened three shops in Houston and their owners are thinking of opening other boutiques within the United States. Araya offers a variety of flavors such as orange marzipan, cinnamon & walnuts, passion fruit, Venezuela 70%, and pink salt, which is the store’s number 1 seller followed by strawberry balsamic. Even if you do not want chocolate, you can still drop by for French macarons and other decadent treats.

This year, Araya is offering summer classes for kids, which would be taught by Stefano Zullian, the proud owner. There, kids will learn about the history of chocolate and how chocolate is made. At the end of the day, kids will come home with five handmade chocolate bars.

The night starts with a delicious dinner catered from Carrabbas Italian Grill that has a Caesar salad, Chicken Marcela, mashed potatoes, vegetable medley, bread and olive oil. Non-alcoholic drinks are provided but you may bring your own beer, wine or champagne. They have a dessert buffet that consists of 5 to 6 delicious desserts that, of course, include chocolate! Following the dinner the mystery begins!

chocolateA crime takes place and you get a choice, the choice of just staying seated and solving the crime or taking on a role in the mystery and taking on a role means you might be chosen to take on a starring or minor role and could end up being the murderer or be murdered. Why wouldn’t you want to take part in this exciting game and become Sherlock Holmes, or maybe even Moriarty (the villain in Sherlock Holmes)?

Instead of going to that boring movie and dinner you planned, I suggest you go to this Mystery Dinner Theater and have some interaction with a story!
