The Chin Chin Laboratorists
For a city whose summers never get absurdly hot, London has a surprising number of top-notch ice cream shops and gelaterias. One of the most intriguing is Camden’s Chin Chin Laboratorists. Husband-and-wife owners Ahrash Akbari-Kalhur and Nyisha Weber can usually be spotted behind the counter (clad in lab coats and protective goggles) creating creamy ice creams to order with blasts of liquid nitrogen, and adding ingenious toppings like honeycomb. Also on the menu: coffee brewed from cult favorite Monmouth Coffee beans.
