Being able to get ice cream on the instant, without having to wait for it to cool down is a big perk. The staff use physics and liquid nitrogen - which is rarely found - to create these awesome desserts.

People often refer to Chin Chin as the best place to get ice cream in London. The texture and taste is really something you'll remember. Smooth and almost melting in your mouth,...more

I've been trying to find ice cream made with liquid nitrogen for a really long time, and I finally got a chance to try it! The texture was really incredible. It was much smoother and more dense than regular ice cream, almost chewy. The flavors were also really good, definitely top 3 strawberry and chocolate ice creams I have ever had. However, the scoops are pretty big, and since the ice cream...more
