Chin Chin Labs

Wednesday 6 November 2013
Being Northern down South comes with the inevitable digs; 'Do you want gravy with that?', however it does have its advantages, we can stand the cold, so bring on the ice cream in this weather!

But this is me right. not one to show you mundane ice cream, heaven forbid! No, this is something a lot cooler (pun definitely intended). 

Think Chemistry meets Gastronomy, its only Liquid Nitrogen Ice cream!

Amid billowing clouds of freezing cold liquid nitrogen, the once chemists turned icecreamists, mix creamy, velvety goodness into sweet ice cream. 

Yet they don't just stop there. The menu is as unique as the concept, with a different 'Flavour of the week' going on, your likely to find such flavour combinations as my Tobacco Baked Pear.

If that wasn't enough, prepare to pile your lab creation high with Willie Wonka style toppings. Grilled white chocolate, heather honeycomb, eat your heart out Johnny Depp.

Yet push comes to shove, I had to make a decision, so what was my order of the day? The Tobacco Baked Pears, Green Tea Peanut Brittle and Raspberry Sauce... OK, and I had an extra helping of chocolate dipped potato chips... oh come on, they sounded too insane not to try them!

My foodie partner in crime this time was Nessa who had the same, but went uber sweet and had the thick chocolate sauce, and heather honeycomb. Now I am informed, even though we are both sweet toothed people, the chocolate sauce is very rich, so word to the warning, it maybe sugar overload with those toppings too.

White chocolate potato chips... yes you fellow Brits, that is chocolate crisps.

Chin Chin labs- totally barking, definitely mad scientist, but oh my gosh, so thick, velvety, indulgent ice cream, that you'll be willing to turn that little bit mad just to get your mitts on some. 

You can find them at Camden, a stones throw away from the other crazy in town; Cyber Dog. Or you know, on the good old sane internet here.
