Best Places for an Ice Cream

1. London: Chin Chin Labs

With a relatively small menu compared to some of our other favourite Ice Cream parlours, Chin Chin Labs is made lovingly using the freshest ingredients possible for a taste sensation. Here you can have your ice cream frozen to order in liquid nitrogen – pretty swanky, I know. Chin Chins also got some social media attention recently for their decadent hot chocolates which are not only silky and sweet, they’re also served with a toasted marshmallow topping.
