ShilX gelato is currently my favourite place for dessert in the Valley.

ShilX is perfectly placed on Brunswick Street, across the road from the Sunbar and the Press Club, and just up from New York Slice. That also explains why ShliX is open until 3am on Saturdays and 5am on Sundays - sometimes you just need a good gelato instead of another drink.

The gelato is made freshly on the premises, and covers the usual range of fruity flavours (like blood orange, mango and passionfruit), creamy/chocolately ones (like white chocolate, tiramisu and mars) and also the "drink of the week" flavour (pina colada anyone?).

Serves start at $3 for one flavour and go up in price depending on just how much drink of the week you need that night.

ShliX also serves coffee (by Coffex) and shakes. But you're really here for the great gelati.

Best of all, ShliX is a local, family run operation . So next time you're wandering around the Valley after a great dinner or a few drinks, head into ShliX for a gelati or two. And if you find yourself liking it, make sure you pick up a VIP card, to reward you for your dedicated gelati scoffing.

Such a shame your Thai Wi Rat experience was not so great - but a good excuse to try it again!

Shlix looks great, I'll have to give it a try. Our local ice-cream haunt is Gelateria Cremona @ Rosalie. So, so delicious, and often for the Rosalie Cheese festival they make Blue Cheese and Pear that I buy in litre tubs.

Also, letting you know that Mu'ooz Eritrean restaurant is open for business in Moorooka. I ate there last week and the food's delicious, and the ladies who run the restaurant are just so friendly. Definitely worth a visit!

Shlix IS great! I only wish we lived closer to the Valley so we could go there more often... try the Jaffa flavour, it's delicious :)
