Leonardo Ice Cream

During the weekend we did a trip around the island and we discovered a new ice cream vendor on the island; Leonardo Ice Cream.

The signs for the shop were noted by me but didn't really register, until we visited Hin Ta Hin Yai as part of our trip and between Hin Ta and the parking lot, is one of their three outlets, manned by Francesco, one of the three owners of Leonardo Ice Cream.

He immediately asked us if we wanted to taste some of the ice cream and we were more than happy to oblige. A visit to an ice cream shop was on the list of things to do for that day. 
In short, we were blown away and immediately decided to make our ice cream stop right there at that moment. We have a new official favorite ice cream shop on the island; Leonardo Ice Cream!

They offer sorbets, made after a Frnech recipe from Corsica, delivered by Philippe, another owner. They decided however to fly it under one flag; Leonardo Ice Cream. 
I had a sorbet with Apple Cinnamon and it was truly like eating an apple pie, 100% without sugar on top of that. Our children had the pistachio ice cream and that was heavenly, with real pistachio chunks in it.

There are three outlets, the one pictured above at Big Buddha, currently manned by Matteo, the outlet at Hin Ta Hin Yai, currently staffed by Francesco (pictured below) and the main outlet and factory in Lamai, manned by the third owner, Simone.
Besides the three outlets, they also deliver to some of the hotels around Samui. Those lucky guests!

There are no scoops, but just plain straightforward cups and they go for 100.-THB per cup, but you can try out a few of their tastes, before you decide on which one to settle. 
Very friendly service and great taste, comes highly recommended by all of us, the Lemmens clan on Samui!
