(Just Like it! had since ceased all operations in Singapore.)
If you are in AMK Hub recently, you would have noticed this small booth stall at the middle of the bus interchange and the shopping area that looks very much like a chemistry lab. While it is somewhat true, I guess it would be more appropriate to call it an ice-cream parlour still.
The white lab uniforms, the fumes coming out from the kitchen mixers and the chemistry lab bottles definitely is attention-grabbing and an instant conversation starter for the passers-by. Staff are always welcome to answer the queries of the making of the ice-cream, and once you order, all the magic just starts. The additional ingredients in the ice-cream are weighted by an electronic scale, while the sauces contained in the bottles goes straight into the mixer. Then the mixer starts and all the nitrogen comes to action with everything shrouded in fumes and then the ingredients get added in before the final mix and everything comes out solidified into what is ice-cream. It is said on the poster that the ice-cream made this way has no sugar added, no additives and no colouring; all of it just original taste.
New Popcorn is one of the most unique flavours that they have come out with; did not recall seeing a similar flavour elsewhere. This one had a nice salted flavour in it, similar to the likes of Salted Caramel but way lighter. While the ice-cream had a light taste, the sweetness of actual caramel popcorns kick in when you go into the second scoop when you find a generous serving of caramel popcorns in it. This sweet and salty flavour definitely goes well with each other and are pretty much light on the palate, hence there would be no cloying sweetness that might be too much to handle.
$6.90 for a single scoop in regular can be a bit pricey for some, but it is really worth the price to just watch the ice-cream made as though it is magic. It currently serves four different flavours now, being the Durian Durain, New Popcorn, Pulou Hitam and another flavour that I was not really paying attention to. If you had not tried a nitro ice-creams before, this would be somewhere there you should go at least once in the lifetime.
