Obsessed: Uruma Gelato

If there is one thing the two of us thoroughly enjoy it's good gelato. Although, the ever popular Blue Seal is delicious it is not gelato. Gelato differs from regular ice cream in that it doesn't contain as much air in it and is soft ice cream not intended to be served frozen solid or hard. It's amazing. 

Uruma Gelato is located off of the 37 about 15 minutes south of Courtney and it's amazing. The gelato is made on site and from what I understand, entirely local ingredients. The have an array of standard flavors such as chocolate, strawberry, and milk--not to be confused with vanilla--to the surprisingly unique red pepper, parsley, rum, Okinawa sea salt, and a few others. Hands down winning flavors in the house are the organic tea, shikuwasa (commonly known as hirami lemon), and chocolate. Their gelato is soft, not extremely sweet, and has just the right amount of ice crystals. To top it off it has an epic view of the Kinbu Bay and Ikei-Miyaji-Hamahiga Islands. Basically it's amazing.
