Nitro and out-of-the mind ice cream

We are habitual of Camdem and for the first time I notice the place. They prepare ice cream use the nitro method that allow to produce a better quality ice cream, if the ingredients are extremely fresh and natural. We have 2 rounds of ice cream first the cherry-pistachio-meringue... read more

This is a cool place as it contains two of my favorite things: Unique technology and amazing ice cream! Once you order one of the great flavors you will notice they prepare the ice cream using liquid nitrogen. Their theme as their name states is a lab so you will be able to see the different toppings they offer in... More

At these place you can get the best ice cream that you ever can dream off, so if you pass by Camden Town you have to go at CHIN CHIN.

We were in Camden and received an impromptu message to go and visit... One of the best messages to receive as the Ice cream tasted amazing and it was great to have it made so fresh in front of us. The only down side is that it is such a tiny little shop and it is quite pricey at around... More

I've had the luxury of trying this a good few times and each time I have had it, the flavour seems to getting even better! I've had nitro ice creams in different countries and Chin Chin Labs is definitely the best I've had They have different flavours once in a while and you can watch the

2nd visit for us, and it was great again. I had Scones Jam & te flavour, which was excellent, especially the tea flavoured white chocolate on the top. The chocholate with raspberry was very tasty as well. And the cherry on the top: I just love the watch the Kitchen Aid army!!! 😍

Even with a small selection of flavours, this is my favourite ice cream in london. The two standard flavours are superb (vanilla and deep dark chocolate!) their other ones are more adventurous. The texture is the best, courtesy of being made right in front your eyes with liquid nitrogen. The experience is brilliant!

This is just amazing ice cream. The smoothest and most flavoursome vanilla I think I've ever had - and the toppings (I had grilled white chocolate) are different but not,pretentious. We did have a short wait as each order is made freshly, and you can watch yours being made - and interesting process, and straight out on Willy Wonka's chocolate... More
