Movenpick Ice Cream @ Melbourne Central @ Sunday, October 20, 2013


Movenpick at Melbourne Central is located outside the food court or dinning hall, in front of Cupcake Central. Unlike the one at QV which is a sit down cafe where you can hang out this one is your typical take-away ice creamery kiosk. 






After some samplings I had 3 scoops in a cup ($10), would love a cone but I'm a slow eater and someone needs to hold the camera. Vanilla, Tiramisu and White Chocolate. My favourite is the 2nd, the 1st two were my favourites from our last visit to the Movenpick at QV last Sunday.



As I already wrote about the first two flavours I'll just (write) type about White Chocolate here. It was delicious tasted premium except the white chocolate flakes throughout the ice cream, which learned more towards Cadbury/Nestle rather than Green's Organic.



I don't like the way it's styled, as it'll drip. Here's a more manageable looking picture.

The girl who severed me was lovely. Last week I met a man who worked at the restaurant eatery next to Movenpick who said he's never eaten there. I asked why, and he pointed out it's $5 a scoop. A very valid point, though on both my visits I spent a total of $16, with $15 spent on vouchers from a group buy site worth $30 credit. 

At $5 a scoop that's expensive, I'd rather go for frozen yoghurt at Cacao Green. But do check out Movenpick once and try the sampling platter (deluxe is my recommendation . As for us we're happy with $10 gourmet ice cream from the freezer at supermarket (sometimes on sale for $7 ;).

Oh and if you want to sit down and have way more options like platters, waffles, pancakes etc go to the QV location. Melbourne Central has a very small menu (not flavours though) and is for take-away. Personally I wouldn't get waffles or pancakes though, they do ice cream best so that's what you're after. For waffles there's 'Waffle On' in Degraves, and pancakes are upstairs at the Pancake Parlour.

A nice outing with friends, QV, but too loud for a date. Plus you might want to spend more time on a date then it takes to finish a cone or two.   



Have you been to Movenpick? Ice Cream or Frozen Yoghurt?

Oh dear it seems I gave the address of the car park next to the shopping center. Can't fix it, only admin can. Pretty sure if someone rocks up and can't find it they'll figure it out. :P
