First Bite: Outré

I have been curious about Outré for the longest time. Photos of the ice cream store's vandalized walls and the overflowing scoops of liquid nitrogen gelato made me drool like a St. Bernard. But its two branches are a bit too far from me and just thinking about the traffic makes me cringe. And so I made sure to include Outré as one of our stops when we went to Aguirre for a food crawl.

Hello, Outré
The place was empty when we got there around 3:30 pm on a drizzling Sunday afternoon. 
I quickly ordered the Milo Dinosaur Gelato (PHP160) while K went with Dulce de Leche Gelato (PHP150). 
It was fun watching them prepare our gelato. The smoky/fog effect never fails to entertain me.

K’s order was served first and it was mouthwatering. The generous serving of gelato was already dripping by the time I finished taking photos of it. Taste-wise, it wasn’t as sweet as I thought. It had a nice milky caramel flavor and a very creamy texture. It was rich but not cloying. But if you are not too fond of sweets, the pretzels will help solve the problem.
My Milo Dinosaur was served next and it was chocolate overload! The Milo-flavored gelato was topped with Milo powder and a syringe with Milo syrup. 
Despite the lack of colors, my order was quite photogenic. And it’s just not pretty, it was also delightful. It may be a chocoholic’s dream but it was surprisingly not as chocolatey as I anticipated. The taste, just like dulce de leche’s, was quite light. But if you have a monstrous sweet tooth, then you could drizzle some chocolate syrup on the gelato for additional taste. 
Overall, I had a great time at Outré. I would love to be back if I get to visit Aguirre or Circuit Makati. 

P.S. Check out their washroom! I find it so witty. It is named as Confession Room and there's a notebook inside where you could confess or share your darkest secrets. 

Outré is located at 169 Aguirre Avenue, BF Homes, Parañaque City.
