The flavors at Gelateria Uli seem to burst from the cone. The strawberry sorbetto brings the full weight of fresh berries to bear in your mouth, like an iced, muddled bushel picked at the height of summer. Located in the Spring Arcade building downtown next to Guisados tacos, and open since April, this shop rotates 16 flavors a day of gelato and sorbetto from an extended, ever-growing list of possibilities. In fact, if you suggest a flavor they like the sound of, Uli’s gives you a free pint. The Gelateria takes plenty of risks with flavors, from the bracing rosemary-hazelnut-almond to bee pollen to white chocolate-pumpkin seed, studded through with whole seeds. The affogato is also truly splendid.
