Scoops is the first ice cream parlour in Egypt combining traditional Italian gelato and healthy frozen yoghurt in one suave store...
Disappointed with the quality of ice cream they have been served all over the country, International Restaurants Group, otherwise known as the people behind culinary hot spots Casper & Gambini’s and Zeitouna Lebanese Bistro, decided to take matters into their own hands. Open now in the Nile City Towers mall, Scoops is Cairo’s first ice cream parlour, and trust us, it’s delicious. “We wanted to create something better, so we purchased the equipment and created our own gelato variety,” explains Alia El Askalany, the marketing and PR manager for the gourmet-loving group. In fact, their passion for perfect scoops of ice cream was so strong that they kept at it, even when the revolution threw a spanner into the works, delaying their launch from 2011 until now.
Serving up both traditional Italian gelato and the healthier but equally delicious frozen yoghurt, Scoops is the first place in Cairo combining both icy treats. The modern, inviting store was designed by GG & Grace – the same firm that has already injected vibrancy into the somewhat-bland mall, having designed and executed Zeitouna Lebanese Bistro. Invading our summer with over 30 delicious flavours, introduced in rotations of eight at a time, we can’t wait to try their unique peanut butter, tiramisu and pistachio flavours, in particular. They’ve thought about everything and Scoops is the first place in all of Egypt to serve up soy milk versions, for all you intolerants out there! Stay tuned to find out when they start their delivery service so if you're lactose intolerant AND allergic to Egyptian streets, you can still get a tasty treat.
