Food find in New Row, London

My first night in London I found a great-looking little food street, with a gelato shop selling some of the best I’ve ever had — it even puts the Bi-Rite Creamery salted caramel to shame!

La Gelatiera‘s salty caramel has a strong salt flavor I find missing from the blander, sweeter option at Bi-Rite (in San Francisco).  The other flavors look lovely and creative (basil and chili, anyone?).

Note the ribbon of caramel running through... extra flavor!

While standing outside the teeny shop enjoying my gelato, I noticed several other food-related shops on the street… JPC (the Jamaica Patty Company, which I’ve read about as quite good), New Row Coffee, Drury Tea & Coffee Company, Sweet Couture cake boutique, and more.

There’s even a “nostalgia” candy shop, Hardy’s Original Sweet Shop, with candies we’ve forgotten about or never knew in the US (like Pear Drops, with a rather saucy package).
