“It started with the smell, the strong smell of ***** and *******, then the palate. It’s a pretty strange feeling, especially when you can’t see and you are in a “dark” room. It’s here that the contrast comes to light and makes you truly understand the difference between what you think gelato is, the gelato you find in the rest of the world, and gelato at Mokambo. I’m truly speechless. Raptured, to say the least!”

One of the points of criticism that we have often received, especially at the start, ever since the reopening of Mokambo has been:

“The flavors don’t have to be stored in the containers. Without seeing them, I don’t feel inspired [by the gelato] and consequently I can’t make a choice.”

Aside from the technical explanation as to why our gelato is stored in containers, there is one thing I would like you to pay attention to. This is for yours and your family’s sake.

Letting your eyes choose for you, not only gelato, is a habit that the media and society have created by convincing you that you must choose “the most beautiful” because that must necessarily be “the best”.

The shiniest and most colorful apples, the reddest tomatoes, the juiciest meats. These are just a few examples. Whether the link

Beautiful = Tastier
has some truth to it, we don’t know.

But here, we want to teach you this:

If it were true that by hiding our gelato, it wouldn’t speak to you and you wouldn’t feel inspired by it, then you would have probably NEVER read these lines, and we would have closed our doors before anybody had noticed us.

We have therefore given it some thought and have made a decision:

“What if we could let you feel our gelato, its aromas and its scents, without letting your eyesight get in the way?

Which flavors would you “feel”?
Which feelings would you grasp?
Would you be able to tell the difference between what something looks like and what it actually is?

What I’m talking about is:

A blindfolded tasting and olfactory experience.

Yes, you heard that right.

Let me introduce you to the…

“Mokambo Blind Experience”

The first ever Mokambo Gelateria experience where you are completely blindfolded.

Savor the aromas and scents released by the gelato with your other senses and let yourself be guided by your palate and your sense of smell.

No eyesight, no inspiration. Only raw materials at their full strength for an extraordinary gastronomic experience.

This experience is NOT for you if...

This experience is FOR You if...

“What these family does is not gelato, is pure Love. I've never tried ice cream like this before”
