Chin Chin Labs Nitro Ice-Cream - nitrogen-frozen ice cream from Camden, London

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.
