When i was younger, i never understood why people said ice cream is unhealthy. How can something made of milk be, when it is an essential part of our daily calcium intake? Well, i am still in denial even after knowing it's made from fatty cream but now, i've found an ice cream parlor that actually makes its ice cream from fresh milk and that is 320 Below Nitro Cream Cafe. They also happen to be the first ice cream cafe to freeze its ice cream using nitrogen.

This special cafe doesn't have the usual tubs of ice cream on display and there's no tasting of the flavors. This is because all the ice cream are made fresh on the spot, right in front of you. It may take a while but there're absolutely no emulsifiers, stabilizers or preservatives used at all.

So in goes the fresh and natural ingredients AND the milk into the colorful home mixers. Then blasts the nitrogen gas which quick freezes the mixture at -320.4 Fahrenheit. The quick freeze process ensures there is no build up of ice crystals and hence the end mixture is a smooth and molecular gastronomy sorta melt. One moment it's there, and the next it's gone, leaving only a light trace of the flavors once present. There is none of that heavy and oily aftertaste and it feels like you can go on eating tubs after tubs after tubs..

The flavors are rather extensive as you can tell from the board. The red colored ones are flavors that could be made in the yogurt or sorbet form. The level of sweet is really dependent on the natural flavors of the ingredient so some must taste a little more bland than others.

My current favorite is the Christmas Horklicks. They should keep this on the menu. If not, just get the Horlicks flavor and add in honeycomb and oreo. Fantastic combination.

They also do tubs and delivery! Don't say i never share. ;)

Hi,

thanks for taking the time to come and see us and post your review. I'd just like to clarify a few details in your review. Firstly as with other ice creams makers we DO use cream in the ice cream. However where we differ is that we don't use any natural or artificial flavourings (which are just chemical imitations of the real ingredient) or emulsifiers, stabilizers or preservatives. Secondly the level of sweetness is entirely up to the customer. Of course some ingredients are sweeter than others e.g. fruit compared to coffee but we are able to customise each and every ice cream according to taste. Because of the way we make the ice cream we only use a little sugar but we're happy to add more if someone wants it. And even though we make EVERY ice cream fresh we average around 2-3 mins to make it so hopefully you don't have to wait too long for your ice cream. Very glad you enjoyed the Christmas Horlicks and don't worry we won't be taking it off the board anytime soon as its very popular :-).

Probably the best ice cream i've ever eaten. They have a lot of different tastes, and some of them i've never seen before (garlic for example). They make the ice cream in front of you and it's really cool to watch. A bit pricy (4.5$/ball) but it's worth it!

Quite literally ran into this place trying to find my hostel in the rain. Had one of their (amazing!) ice cream flavour combos while I was waiting for the torrential rain to ease up. The owner was lovely and helped me to work out where I was going and even called a cab for me (there were none on a Saturday afternoon)!! Thanks so much - I'll definitely be going back on my next trip to Singapore!! :)
