Instagram has exploded with pictures of the incredible icecreams at Good Times, and on a recent visit to Sydney I couldn’t resist stopping by. The store is a narrow, hole-in-the-wall place, so don’t expect seating of any kind, but do expect friendly, prompt service. I ordered the Ziggy Stardust ($10), with lychee, mint and coconut sorbet, topped with freeze-dried blackberries, pop rocks, strawberry powder and a white chocolate star. For me, it was the full combination of ingredients that made this special. I liked the sorbet, with its refreshing balance of lychee and mint, with just a hint of coconut (not too overpowering), but I loved the sorbet with the fun textures of the palatte-fizzing pop rocks and sweet strawberry powder. The freeze-dried blackberries were a highlight, and I would have liked more than three as they were unusual and had great, intense flavour. The serving size was large and it did take us a while to eat (mine started to melt a bit towards the end), but I felt as though $10 was a bit steep for what you got. Having said that, I thoroughly enjoyed my dessert and would recommend it for sure.
