For Ngummara with Expert in October, Kummara team went to Yes Ice Please, a unique gelato and sorbet store in Lengkong Besar. There, we met Jonathan, one of its founders to learn more about desserts.
Yes Ice Please opened in 2016, but Jonathan already started trying to make his own gelato in 2014. At that time, gelato still not that known and he decided to create the trend, but since the gelato maker machine was expensive, Jonathan decided to make his own machine. But now, he and his team created all the gelato by hand. Thus created a different texture compared with machine-made gelato. Jonathan also shared the stories behind gelato and sorbet. Do you know that ice cream, gelato and sorbet are all different?
Another factor that makes Yes Ice Please unique is their flavor choice. They serve ordinary flavors such as mango, kiwi and blueberry, to unique flavors like chocolate chili, lavender, and Pringles. Because they don’t use additives and essence for their products, the flavors really depend on the taste of the fruit itself. We tasted several flavors and we would love to taste more!
From Jonathan’s story, we learned that any obstacles ahead should not stop us from innovating. Also, creativity should always be practiced to create something unique and different from others. Thank you Jonathan for the stories and the gelato!
