Hidden Finds: 320 Below Nitro Cream Cafe

By Tuesday, January 29, 2013 , , ,

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.

You could go for the regular plain ice cream flavors or make your own creation with the various toppings.
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.
Great place to bring the kids. You can just leave them to their own devices, literally. iPhones and iPads have this amazing ability to shut kids up and turn them into potatoes. Awesome possum.

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