The goma ice cream served by Gomaya Yuki is the best that I have eaten to-date. Smooth and creamy with very intense sesame flavours.
On the shop’s recommendation, I ordered a scoop the Triple Rich black and a scoop of the Triple Rich white, drizzled with sesame oil and topped with black and white sesame seeds. You can find Gomaya Yuki’s menu here.
If I had ever thought it odd to drizzle sesame oil to ice cream, I no longer do. The sesame oil enhances the flavours of the goma ice cream and makes it even more delicious! I also tried the tempura ice cream which I didn’t enjoy as I found it too oily and messy.
Gomaya Yuki is hidden in one of the Omotesando alleys along the main Omotesando boulevard. Just type ‘Gomaya Yuki’ on Google Maps and it will lead you right to the shop.
