Gelo Fredo Ice Cream in Jawharat Al Shatti

Long time Omani Cuisine ‘frenemies’ Dream Cones have recently opened a new gelato and ice cream cake outlet in Jawharat Al Shatti Mall in Shatti Al Qurum. Gelo Fredo has only opened a few days ago and offers a very similar ice cream collection to these offered at Dream Cones in Zakher Mall which includes a wide variety of flavors including watermelon, creme caramel, creme brulee, blueberry yogurt, raspberry yogurt, and a variety of other regular and sugar-free flavors.

A single scoop costs RO 0.9, while 2 scoops cost RO 1.600, and 3 scoops cost RO 2.400. Their menu mentions toppings and syrups, but I wasn’t offered any of them when I ordered my ice cream, but was asked later if I wanted some strawberry syrup after I sat down. I had a raspberry yogurt and blueberry yogurt ice cream which I thought was refreshing and delicious. I was not pleased about having a plastic spoon with my relatively fancy looking ice cream cup though.

In addition to the ice cream Gelo Fredo offers a number of ice cream cakes and cupcakes which can be seen in their fridge in the back, they looked pretty cool, but I didn’t try any of them.

The actual official opening of Gelo Fredo is next weekend and will be running a special to buy 1 scoop and get another for free between the 30th of September to the 7th of October. If you have not tried Dream Cones before this would be a good chance to give it a try.
