I’ve heard of the word Iscreamist a few times. I assumed it was a simple place to eat ice cream. But I was wrong.
The Iscreamist is not your ordinary ice cream shop. Why? Well, it’s because they serve their dessert along with liquid nitrogen.
Judging from the outside, the neon blue and laboratory-inspired shop clearly states that you will be in for a big surprise. My friend brought me there on a Saturday. Since Iscreamist is located at Magiting Street in Teacher’s Village, parking can sometimes be difficult. You just can’t park anywhere blocking driveways. Good thing, we found a safe spot.
As we entered the shop, I noticed that the place is not that big. In fact, the Iscreamist can only accommodate less than 15 people. But that’s alright because the customers were conscious of their surroundings. If they start seeing people coming in, they will gladly share a seat or would finish eating to give way/ chance to the new ones.
We actually waited for only a few minutes. It wasn’t that bad because I enjoyed looking around, watching the smoke as people dip their food into a cup of liquid nitrogen and staring (I did not wear my glasses) at their cool Periodic Table Menu while waiting.
The ice cream was, of course delicious. But I was looking forward for the smoke. After eating my ice cream, my friend showed me how to eat and get Dragon’s Breath. As I watched him dip the s’mores in a cup of liquid nitrogen and ate it, cool smoke suddenly came out not only from his mouth but also from his nostrils. Thus, the dragon’s breath!
And now, it’s my turn. 🙂 Here’s a short video!
I admit, I was pretty scared but excited at the same time. 🙂 There was a lot of smoke coming out of my mouth and my nostrils. I wanted to laugh but I just can’t do it. It was really funny.
Moving on, the ice cream and other snacks they offer are not only delicious but also intriguing and entertaining. It’s intriguing because you don’t know what to expect in every bite. On the other hand, it’s entertaining because of the people’s different reactions.
Overall, I enjoyed my first Iscreamist experience and I will definitely be back there. I would probably bring a friend who hasn’t tried it for my amusement! 🙂
