A curiously plain-looking place, tucked into the bottom of a Chiswick townhouse, Foubert’s continues – as it has since 1978, though not at the same site – to dish up a couple of dozen flavours of ice cream in the ultra-vivid colours beloved of under-tens.
Well-textured and creamy, the coffee, rich wild cherry and tangy lemon sorbet flavours came as a monstrous £4 ‘large’ portion in a cardboardy old-style cornet.
The place really comes to life as soon as the severe-looking old lady locals simply call ‘Mamma’ has a child to dote on – you’ll hear an entire dictionary of Italian endearments before your cone even starts to melt.
