Square Meal Review of Chin Chin Laboratorists ?

Remember when Maggie Thatcher lent her intellectual clout to the science behind Mr Whippy? Well, the geeks are back – but this time they’re cooler. In the gastronomists’ ice-cream shop-cum-laboratory, creatively flavoured custards & creams (such as coffee & doughnuts flavour) lie waiting to be blasted with liquid nitrogen, with super-smooth results.

  1. Among Camden's busy shops and market stalls, you will find Chin Chin Labs ice cream shop. Strange name for a place that sells ice cream? That's because it specialises in ice creams frozen instantly by liquid nitrogen, making 'nitro ice cream'.The concept is pretty simple: pick what you want from a relatively small menu, and then they make it in their open kitchen in front of you in minutes.I opted for the pondicherry vanilla ice cream, topped with hazelnut plus a bit of raspberry sauce on the side. Pretty tasty stuff and it's always a good thing when you can see and taste the vanilla!Now that summer's coming (kind of), you could consider popping in if you're in the area - for the novelty if nothing else.Closest Tube: Camden Town

    Watch these guys down at the Chin Chin laboratories in Camden Market make fresh ice cream in less than two minutes with a little help from the master of special effects – liquid nitrogen. I came with the pure fascination of wanting to see Europe’s first Nitrogen ice cream, and I didn’t have to look hard to find the parlour either as the waft of sweet caramel hot off the burner led my nose straight to its doors. The lovely laborartisans (part lab technician part artists, yes I went there) explained why using this technique was more advanced and theatrical than the usual process...
