Miguel decided to leave his graphic designer career and their family business to pursue his passion for creating liquid nitrogen ice cream.

From the fresh cow’s milk cream base, you only have to wait for a few minutes for it to turn into extra smooth and creamy ice cream without the icy crystals.

Yuzu (Regular – P150, Large – P230). Japanese Lime.

The Yuzu is my favorite. If you’re looking for a light, tangy taste that is refreshing, this flavor is for you.

Nuts 4 Nutella (Regular – P120, Large – P190). Nutella-infused.

The Nutella is an all-time favorite. You can really taste the chocolate hazelnut flavor infused into the ice cream.

Piña Colada (Regular – P150, Large – P230). Pineapple, Coconut, and Rum.

For those who are lactose intolerant, order the Piña Colada made from pineapple and coconut juice with a bit of rum.

They also create this cool ice cream popcorn, which is crisp on the outside and melts in your mouth.

Another fun creation is the FroDough, which is a gourmet take on the dirty ice cream on monay.

Order the Nuts 4 Nutella or Yuzu flavor in FroDough form or with their wafers. Budget about P150/head. The kids and kids-at-heart would surely enjoy seeing the liquid nitrogen in action.
