Lab Made Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream Laboratory (分子雪糕專門店)

Lab Made Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream Laboratory (分子雪糕專門店)
G/F, 6 Brown Street,
Tai Hang, Hong Kong


There’s been a lot of buzz lately about Lab Made. My Facebook and Instagram have also been filled with images of Lab Made ice cream. So what’s all the buzz about? They make their ice cream fresh, right before your eyes. Ever wondered how ice cream is made? You can witness it yourself. Lab Made freezes their ice cream instantly using liquid nitrogen and if you ever visit the store, you’ll often see the smoke coming from their electric mixers.

Lab Made is serving the following flavors this week: Treacle Tart, ILLY Coffee, Coconut “Tang But Lut” and Mango Gelato. They switch out their menu and serve a different set of flavors every few weeks. Apparently, this week’s menu was not special.

We ordered the coffee, coconut and mango flavors and I was quickly disappointed. Yup, I could get these flavors from the grocery store. Nothing special here. Although, a big fan of coconut ice cream that I am, I did enjoy the coconut one more than the others. After all, coconut ice cream is not very commonly found in Hong Kong grocery stores.

Oh, also be warned. There aren’t too many seats in the lab.

A re-visit is a must but that will have to depend on the new flavors they offer.

Happy eating,
Joey Wong ♥

    Looks like this is similar to Smitten Ice Cream in San Francisco. Smitten only offers 3-4 flavors each day, some of which are really good and some are just so-so. What I like about Smitten is how the process incorporates very little air into the ice cream, resulting in a much more creamier texture. And Smitten uses very high quality fresh cream. You can really taste the fresh, smooth cream.

      Dear Mochamudpie,

      I am definitely adding Smitten Ice Cream to my Yelp bookmarks and making a stop the next time I get to go to San Francisco! I eat ice cream pretty much every day so I love it when I get recommendations. I normally buy Talenti Ice Cream from the grocery store. Do you have recommendations for ice cream brands as well?

      Thank you for your recommendation!

    Regarding store brands, there aren’t really a lot of good ones. I tend to get certain flavors from certain brands, e.g., Haagen Dazs vanilla or coffee, Ben and Jerry’s Chubby Hubby. Talenti is a decent one too. Strauss is not bad either. When I was in Columbus OH I tried Jeni’s ice cream at their scoop shop and think their ice creams are good overall. Found out they are now available at Molly Stones by the pint (limited flavors, of course) and have yet to check it out myself. I love their brambleberry crisp! If you do visit SF, Bi-Rite and Humphrey Slocombe make interesting flavors too. They are worth a visit and some flavors are outstanding; however, I think both are a bit overrated (don’t want you to set your expectations too high).

    […] “Salt Lick Crunch” and “Rodeo Road.” Both were amazing. I’ve been to Lab Made Ice Cream in Hong Kong and while both places make their ice cream fresh with liquid nitrogen, I have to say […]
