The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry | A Sydney Food Blog

Create your own Gelato Messina flavour

May 18th, 2013  |  Published in Cafes


We’ve all spent time in Gelato Messina, overexamining the flavours on display, wondering how the staff comes up with such inventive ideas.

Thanks to FBi radio, you have the chance to create your own scoop-worthy concept for that ultra-popular ice-cream cabinet – and if you win, your flavour will be in store from June 7-14 and you get to take home a tub of it! You just need to come up with a flavour using donuts as a key ingredient, get your entry in before May 30 & use the #fbicecream hashtag on Instagram or on Twitter. Or you can enter the old-fashioned way, by emailing your answer to If I was in the running, I’d go for chocolate, strawberry & a tiny bit of rosemary. Maybe yogurt mousse or something fancy, too, but that ain’t in my fridge right now, so let’s stick to these ingredients.

Gelato Messina locations: 389 Crown St, Surry Hills; Shop 1/241 Victoria St, Darlinghurst; The Star, Cafe Court, Level G, 80 Pyrmont Street, Pyrmont. You can following Gelato Messina on Twitter or Facebook.

Hi, I'm Lee Tran Lam. When not blogging with my mouth full, I'm usually writing, presenting Local Fidelity on FBi radio, making zines, producing podcasts or continually breaking promises about how I really am gonna get through my book pile one day.

All the good pictures on this blog are by photography ace (and patient boyfriend), Will Reichelt, (all the dodgy ones can be credited to me)!

The lovely banner is by friend and ultra-talented illustrator Grace Lee.

This site redesign was made possible by the next-level generosity and expertise of Daniel Boud, whose code-tinkering ways are only outranked by his seriously inspired way with a camera.

You can read more about my co-conspirators here.

This is a blog I do for pure fun and zero influence – there's no sponsorship, sneaky advertorial or advertising. I pay for all the food mentioned, 'cos it seems the ethical thing to do.


This is a blog about eating and drinking in Sydney, Australia (with the odd cross-border or off-topic detour). BYO appetite.
