A Science Experiment you can Eat
Having a sweet tooth to rival Willie Wonka's, I don't need much persuading when it comes to trying new desserts, so when I chanced upon Nitrogenie while walking through Southbank one morning, I couldn't wait to come back during opening hours.

Nitrogenie has embraced the era of molecular gastronomy by using liquid nitrogen in its ice cream preparation. Having failed chemistry at school the concept alludes me however on the day I visited, I oohed and ahhed at the puffy nitrogen clouds gathered around the mountains of pastel deliciousness.

Deciding that science was pretty cool I set about moving onto important matters--the flavours. With Fig & Honey, Eumundi Strawberry & Basil, and Brown Sugar & White Miso on the menu you would be forgiven for thinking you had entered a gourmet deli rather than an ice cream shop.

I enthusiastically licked the sample spoon I was offered of Peanut Butter & Jelly which was creamy and rich and had the right ratio of salty peanut taste and sweet jelly drops.

Nitrogenie has a menu of exotic and bold ice cream offerings that changes weekly. A full list of flavours can be found on their website.

Too bad they dont have pictures up in the store. Lots of people looking in at the unusual setup but no buyers because it's not clear what you're buying.
