Ice Cream is one of those things that confuses many my non-gluten free friends. They often react with complete bemusement that such a creamy tasty thing could have wheat in it. Which, to be fair, is a pretty good reaction, why on earth should it? So, here in Berlin you run in to the usual Berlin problem. There are plenty of places with ice cream here but the majority of the time you have to rely on the staff if knowing if there is any gluten within. This often results in a response of ‘of course not!’ and then you have to judge yourself whether the staff actually knows what they’re taking about or whether they’re like most people and simply don’t understand.
Fortunately there are a few places that actually put little gluten free symbols on their labels, removing the need to try to and be a psychic. Today we’re talking about Gelateria Mos Eisley, a little place in Schillerkeiz, Neukolln. First, I’d like to point out the sheer genius in their name. I think I have visited more times than usual just because of it. If you need me to explain it, then the joy of it will likely be lost on you.
The place itself is quiet small but they do have a few seats inside and out, otherwise it’s a pretty standard ice cream place.
Their selection is usually pretty great and I have yet to be disappointed. But the main joy is this little collection of symbols.
It just makes life much much easier. Although, as with all ice cream places here, they tend to not think twice about using the same scoop for all ice creams, so there is a pretty good chance of cross contamination.
In conclusion, their ice cream is pretty great and well worth the visit. Plus you can go for a little walk to the amazing Tempelhof Park after your purchase.
