More ice-cream adventures in London - ChinChin Labs, Camden
So, as I've mentioned before, I'm a big fan of nice ice-cream, particularly Italian-style ice-cream. I went, recently (while feeling a little bad for going anywhere other than Gelupo) to the Chin Chin Labs for liquid nitrogen ice-cream. To be completely honest, I expected it to be a bit of a gimmick. And, it was - there were silly outfits and a sales patter about the chemical process, etc. But it was also extremely good ice-cream, some of the best I've ever tasted. I had ginger wine sorbet with bits of ginger biscuit in it which was amazing - somehow, it didn't just taste of ginger, it tasted of ginger wine. Mmmmm. My lovely husband had cinnamon french toast ice cream which they make by infusing milk with cinnamon french toast. So good. So so good.
