Beku Gelato, Brunswick

*Note: Beku Gelato has moved to a new location in Carlton.

MELBOURNE | Beku Gelato is a gelato spot on Lygon Street, Brunswick East, that’s taking a different approach to the rest.

It’s owned by Agusta Triwahyu, who learned how to make gelato in Rome, and draws upon here Indonesian heritage to create gelato with a twist. There’s classic flavours on the menu – the chocolate, and Turkish delight are both fantastic, but the main reason to come to Beku is for the Indonesian inspired creations.

There’s a core range of flavours and a few rotating tubs so you never know exactly what you might find. Only the best quality, real fruits and ingredients are used, and it shows in the gelato. The teh tarik flavour is a favourite of mine, and a must try. Other great choices include things like minty lychee sorbet, citrusy sweet calamansi gelato, and the coconut sorbet with generous chunks of jackfruit.

If you’re really feeling adventurous, try the durian flavour. The infamous South East Asian fruit is a love it or hate it kind of thing but even I, someone who has tried so many times over the years to love durian but just can’t, quite liked this one.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
