On Queen Street in central Auckland is the ice cream shop, Giapo.
You don’t get to see the ice cream before you order it but you can taste as many as you like from the menu while you decide. Yum.
What happens next is art. To label it an ice cream shop seems derogatory…because it is more like an art gallery.
You place your order and the staff beaver away behind the counter (unseen) and you are then presented with something which makes you smile, makes you take a photograph and most important of all makes you want to come back again next time you are in town.
Mass production is all well and good…but you just can’t beat something that someone takes their time to perfect.
