N2 Extreme Gelato, Chinatown

Whoa!? Random science lab in Chinatown? What on earth are those bottles? Nitrogen? Wait a minute, look at those people working on those unknown machines! No, this is not some mad science project going on, it's N2 Extreme Gelato.

Look at those flasks full of different colours, mmm how amusing? Time for some Chemistry lesson?
 
We immediately noticed these staff members wearing lab coats and thick black frame glasses, getting ready for some dramatic actions. Something else we noticed were the funny illustrations on the black board behind them, it was like some naughty student sneaked into the classroom and did them on impulse.
 
 So the process here is using liquid nitrogen (N2) to freeze those ingredients into lovely scoop of Gelato ice cream. We were so amused by the scene, as it felt like we were back to the science labs in school and ready to create some magnificent explosions! HOHOHO!
 
 1 scoop $6.00
 
After examining the brainstorm of flavours, we decided to go with the "safer" choice which was "Coconut and something else" (even though that "something else" part made us abit suspicious). We happily watched the staff made our little scoop and we couldn't wait to try it.
 
Here it is! Our very first experience of N2 Extreme Gelato! It tasted so smooth with flakes of coconuts on the top to add abit of texture. We thought it was very different to the ice creams we normally had.
 
We'd love to go back there to try some other flavours in summer, and since the menu changes, who knows what we will come across next time?

You are supposed to guess the 'something else' part and they refund your $6 if you get it correct.
