I came here with a friend and ordered two ice creams. The brownwich with the Avocado Hochata ice cream flavour (£5.45) and the Vanilla Pod ice cream with a truffle crumble topping (£4.45). I was a bit disappointed with the Avocado Hochata flavour as I am such a avocadoholic but this reminds me nothing of avocado and has a slight... More

We went yesterday (april 13th) and it was very busy. Queued for about 10 mins which was ok. It was good to be able to watch the making of the ice cream, all open to watch whilst waiting. Ice cream was pricey but you go for the novelty value. Shame there was nowhere to sit,there are only a couple of... More

They make frozen ice cream using liquid nitrogen before your eyes, they have various flavours including stout & burnt butter anyone and some unusual toppings. We had to queue up for about 20 minutes. The ice cream was really smooth, but is it worth the price, I'll let you decide. Remember, they only take CASH.

Chin Chin Labs ticks every hipster box: the liquid nitrogen ice-cream frozen before your eyes, the incredible array of flavour (stout & burnt butter anyone?) and the weird and wonderful toppings, ranging from seaweed crisps to Marmite on toast. On paper it shouldn't work, in practice is food porn at its best - absolutely DIVINE!

I've been here a few times and never been disappointed in the ice cream. It's such an interesting idea and I keep trying to convince my family to visit so we can go! (Def try the burnt white chocolate on top! It's amazing!)

I had heard about Chin Chin Labs through the Facebook group 'Insider' as they made a video about the place, introducing the ice creams made with liquid nitrogen. When in London, there was no way I could miss that spot (the Insider video really got me), so I queued 15 minutes for it...until I saw the small sign next to... More

This place is a must if your visiting Camden. Ice cream sandwich with burnt salted caramel ice cream and marshmallow foam/fluff was out of this world. I can't wait to go back!!

The burnt salted caramel ice cream was to die for. It is also located in a quaint little shopping district.

Can't wait to go back when I am next in London. For me the hot chocolate was perfect in terms of sweetness and the cookie ice cream sandwiches were really good.
