    Most ice cream is made slowly, in a freezer. Not here. The laboratorists freeze ice cream to order using liquid nitrogen. Read more

    Superb ice-cream, beautiful flavour and incredibly smooth texture. The whole theatre of making it with liquid nitrogen made it a special visit. I'll be going back for sure.

    Ahrash Akbari-Kalhur and wife Nyisha Weber own the place - "chin chin" means "cheers", it's not Nyisha's name as is commonly thought!

    Pineapple choc-chip flavor is delish. Can't mix flavors and price for this includes one topping OR one sauce. Additional sauces or toppings cost extra. Cash only.
