Hong Kong popular nitrogen ice cream shop Lab Made has opened in Singapore at Westgate.
Although Lab Made was founded only in recent 2012, it has quickly become one of Hong Kong’s most popular ice cream brands.
While the usual commercial ice cream requires a longer time of at least 10 minutes to freeze, Lab Made uses a fraction at 60 seconds.
Their ice cream is made to order, and you can watch the (gimmicky) nitrogen gas dispense.
My main reservation is, liquid nitrogen has been in Singapore since 2013/14 (or even before), though the general popularity hasn’t been overwhelming.
Some other liquid nitrogen shops, has come and gone (Remember Just Like It?).
The good thing about Lab Made is the Hong Kong outlets change flavours every fortnight, introducing interesting flavours from Apple Crumble, Mango and Coconut Rice, Crunchy Sea Salt Gelato with Caramel Sauce, Pandan Cake with Coconut, Red Jujube, Goji and Black Sugar, to Super Lemon Meringue Pie.
Suitable for young customers always on a search for something different.
Singapore’s Westgate outlet currently carries 4 flavours – Crunchy Sea Salt with Caramel ($6.90), HK French Toast ($6.90), Salted Egg Yolk Custard Bun ($6.90) and Beancurd Dessert ($6.90).
However, do take note that several flavours are ‘sold out’ by noon time when we went down, and we were informed that they “ran out of nitrogen” (???)
