Une Glace à Paris (FR)

Just before heading off on my short trip to Paris, I selected three ice cream shops I’d love to try at some point.

I decided to try “une Glace à Paris” this time, in Le Marais area of Paris. I was curious what kind of flavours one would find in a shop created by an accomplished pâtissier (Olivier Ménard) and a “Meilleur Ouvrier de France Glacier”: Emmanuel Ryon, one of the two associates was awarded this prestigious title in 2000, as one of the Best Craftsmen of France, in the ice cream making category.

Une Glace à Paris offers varieties of ice creams and sorbets that will definitely suit the tastes of all kinds of people: more classic flavours such as raspberry or coconut, more unusual combinations such as “tiger nut sedge, organic kale & apple”, “almond milk caramel litchi” ice creams or “orange, carrot & ginger”, “cherry, mint & cinnamon”, “lemon & vanilla” or “carrot, estragon & whisky” sorbets.

People who love vanilla, chocolate or coffee should definitely head over to this ice cream shop and try the multiple variations:

  • three varieties of vanilla ice cream: with Madagascar vanilla, with Mexican vanilla or with smoked Indian vanilla
  • several chocolate ice creams: with Tanzania 75% chocolate, with smoked Mexican chocolate or with milk chocolate & spices
  • compare the ice cream with coffee from Ethiopia with the one with coffee from Panama

Une Glace à Paris not only sells ice cream by the scoop, they also sell beautiful “vacherin” (ice cream meringue dessert) & baked alaska type desserts towards the front of the shop as well as other pretty delicacies.

The flavours of ice cream I gave into were: pistachio-orange blossom as well as banana-anise barks. Both were excellent! The banana ice cream was very good, although I didn’t taste the anise. I loved the fact that (I think) it was made with very finely grated orange rind. I love both pistachio nuts and orange blossom and both flavours blended perfectly. There were nice little pieces of pistachio in the ice cream.

You should definitely try “une Glace à Paris” on your next trip to Paris! I would be tempted to go back next time I’m in Paris, but there are some other very promising places I need to check out first!
