Super vegan ice cream
There's little doubt that Chiang Mai is a fantastic spot for both vegan and vegetarian food. But there seems to be a tendency for restaurants to only provide mains, some desserts, and non-dairy coffee. But finding vegan ice cream is a little more difficult. Not to say it isn't available - you just have to know where.

Ice Love You is a fun location for an ice cream

One of the best places to go is Ice Love You. With a cute name like that and the promise of vegan ice cream, I set off to find this under-visited spot.

One of the first things that hit me when I reached the place is its decor. It's definitely one to take the kids to, with its colourful superhero theme.

Spidey hangs from the ceiling as you enjoy your ice cream - and yes, they have Spiderman flavour!

There is a nice outdoor area to sit at if the weather allows, but otherwise there's enough space inside too. It has a very casual feel with comfortable sofas and cushions. Just be sure to remove your shoes before entering.

Relax on cushy sofas

It's a vegan's delight walking over to the freezer just inside the entrance, and having a look at all those flavours. It's rare to find so many - no matter where you source your vegan ice cream - but they definitely don't hold back at Ice Love You.

Take your pick

There are plenty of common flavours - as well as some a little unconventional - and the range tends to change at different times. I personally thought the Banoffee Choc Chip was excellent, on the other hand, the Rum and Raisin was a little unusual for my taste. Some of the uncommon flavours they sometimes serve include Black Sesame and Green Tea.

My two-scoops waffle cone

Only one ice cream is non-vegan - the Cheese flavour, so it pays just to be aware of that. The staff are helpful and friendly, so feel free to ask them if you have any doubts.

I have to say that Ice Love You definitely has the best vegan ice cream I have ever tried. It's wonderfully smooth - something you can't always count on. You can choose to have it alone, or in a waffle cone. If you would like something more decadent, enjoy it as part of a sweet burrito or with roti, and you can even get fresh fruit on the side.

Iced water served with your ice cream and pretty decorative spoons

The prices are great, with one scoop of ice cream only 25 baht. A good approach is to have more than one scoop and - choose a different flavour for each scoop.

Watch a little T.V while you eat

A little off the beaten track, Ice Love You is still very accessible from both Nimman and the Western side of the old city of Chiang Mai. Just head down Suthep Road until you see Thep Sathit Road. A short way down it, you will find Ice Love You on the corner of Srivichai Soi 1, to your left.

Sit outside and enjoy your ice cream

It's the perfect place to take a break after visiting the nearby popular Wat Suan Dok, or go to the area especially for the ice cream - it's well worth it!
