If you like your ice-cream and Fanny no longer tickles the places that other ice-creams just can’t reach, then check out Kem Tiamo, a relatively new gelato joint close to the lake.
The work of French-Italian entrepreneur Laurent Marietta — a graduate of Carpigiani Gelato University in Bologna, Italy — the 24 flavours of ice-cream, gelato and sorbet are handmade and are served up with the likes of waffles or crepes, or even just on their own. Marietta likes to experiment with Vietnamese fruit. So expect some more interesting variations appearing on the menu like blackberry (dau tam) sorbet with wine. Also soon-to-be-on the menu is a selection of mocktails and teas from around the world.
Kem Tiamo is at 11 Ba Trieu, Hoan Kiem, Hanoi or online at kemtiamo.com
