If you're looking for a way to cool off after a long, hot and muggy south Florida summer, head over to the Hard Rock tonight for some homemade gelato from Dolci Peccati.
Twin sisters Natalie and Stephanie Yepes have run the truck for nearly a year, rolling onto the streets in November 2010. Their truck, always decorated with flowers, serves fresh gelato in a revolving variety of flavors.
Though the flavors change daily, there are some obvious staples -- vanilla, chocolate, pistachio, hazelnut, and strawberry all can be found, all delicious. But it's the unique flavors that allow the Yepes sisters to show their talents as gelato makers. Red velvet gelato is dense, thick, and creamy; blood orange is sweet and tart; and mango tastes like it was picked directly off the tree.
Try your gelato with a dash of their signature balsamic reduction for a
change of taste. Gelatos come in cups or cones in $3 and $4.50 sizes.
Opt for the larger to try two different flavors. An $8 size is
great for sharing.
Vegan and the lactose-intolerant can indulge
in rich sweet goodness with Dolci Peccati's sorbettos, so flavorful
there's absolutely no way anyone could possibly miss the moo!
Food trucks are at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino tonight from 5:30 to 10 p.m. Along with food trucks, play Just Dance 2 on giant television screens. Free parking, a giant casino, and places to grab a cocktail make this an evening out.
