Good Times Artisan Ice Cream
Chocolate-ribboned ice-cream sandwiches and sparkling towers of soft serve loaded with chocolate stars, cookie crumbles, gold dust and sheets of candied pumpkin. Coconut sorbet covered in shards of nitro-shaved coconut cream; passionfruit and mango “crispies”; mint powder; and crumbs of coconut macaroon.
Nathan Sasi (ex-Nomad chef) and his wife Sali Sasi are behind this ice-cream circus. When it opened at the start of 2016, they worked with dessert expert Christine Manfield as their temporary partner.
Behind a white marble counter, they work feverishly to deliver their outlandish creations. The Smashing Pumpkin is a salted-caramel soft serve with chunks of sweet pumpkin, salted-peanut praline, caramel praline and a protruding shard of candied bacon. The Stoned Pony, an ice-cream sandwich with a chocolate and salted-caramel centre, chocolate-nougat crumble, chocolate shortbread and a rim of chocolate pearls.
Good Times also serves brioche jaffles; old-school ice-cream tubs; and DIY, customisable soft-serve creations. Sasi makes everything fresh every day. The waffle cones are hand pressed, the soft serves are done in-house with all-natural ingredients and every little extra topping, not matter how wild, is made at Good Times each morning.
