Review of The Safe Room

The Safe Room
Ranked #19 of 50 Dessert in George Town
Restaurant details
Reviewed 14 March 2016 via mobile

Tucked in a street with mostly goldsmiths, this little cafe is a surprise find. Used to be an old gold shop, there is a big safe room in the premises which the cafe kept as their "attraction" and hence its name.
Food choices are ample and taste is good. Prices are reasonable and don't forget to try their liquid nitrogen ice cream and pop corns!

We saw their sign for the liquid nitrogen ice cream and just had to try it - and what a treat! It's not the cheapest dessert you'll find in George Town but it was absolutely worth it! They make each ice cream order at that moment, mixing in fresh ingredients with, you guessed it, liquid nitrogen! It was creamy, smooth, and delicious! We got the caramel coffee one, which used coffee grounds - YUM, and the Oreo one, also YUM. The tables next to us ordered the Dragons Breath - caramel popcorn "frozen" in the liquid nitrogen and the effect is really cool. Definitely worth a stop!
Free wifi also!

What a quirky decorated dining area. Love it, an oasis on a hot walk through the lovely streets of George Town. We were recommended this place to try their signature dish of the best coconut ice cream on the island. And IT IS!! Nitrogen infused, served in a coconut, it is to die for indeed. We also had a Mango smoothy and an ice lemon tea. All were out of this world.
Not to be passed by folks.
