Whenever we head over to Maginhawa St. in Teachers’ Village to grabe a bite, we always take a peek at this futuristic-looking shop at Magiting St. named The Icecreamist. At first, we did not really know what they were actually selling (of course we knew it could be ice cream, but the interior looks really different that it could be selling something else!) because we usually pass by there when it is still closed. But that one time at night when we passed by there, the place was filled with a lot of people, and there was some kind of smoke coming from inside the store. Aha, curious foodies that we are, we did some research first (because we may not really be sure that it is a food place hahaha) and found out that it was a dessert shop which offers a lot of interesting items. Thus right away we have decided to try it for ourselves.
The inside of the shop felt like a laboratory, with the tanks, masks and equipment, complete with the menu presented as the periodic table of elements! Ooooh interesting. We could not really decode it on our own, so we kept asking their servers about the stuff on the menu. Ever heard of frozen milkshake? If you did, then have you heard of one prepared with the aid of liquid nitrogen? How about smores? Surely you have heard of it hahaha, but do you know what Dragon’s breath is? Wee so many interesting things to try! They also have Ice Blended Coffee, Teashake, Yogurt Shake and Munchkin Lollies . Ever since that day, we kept coming back whenever we were free or simply needed a nice, cold dessert fix. And when we say cold, we mean freezing cold. Not your regular dessert indeed.
We frequently get Strawberrry Frozen Milkshake and Nutella Frozen Milkshake, plus the Dragon’s breath smores (but you have to try their bacon pocorn, too! So amazing.). They are served really, really smoking cold. How they prepare them is also very interesting to watch, and is very unique, too.
Their version of smores is one with graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows sandwiched together on a stick. You dip this into their mixture for a few seconds (15, I think), and what happens will surprise you. Then you take in the whole thing (biting will cause it to break into pieces, which might destroy the experience) and then you will understand what they meant by Dragon’s breath. Hehehe.
Hoping to try them again soon. <3
