Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream @ N Brew, E@Curve

Cloudy with a chance of sweet success: Forecasting food trends might be a thankless science, but these swirling cryogenic mists wrought by liquid nitrogen technology to create super-smooth ice cream look certain to return the e@Curve mall to food-lovers' radars.

In a prelude to a complete cafe that'll launch at e@Curve within weeks, newbie business N Brew has opened a concourse booth where fresh ice cream mixes are flash frozen with liquid nitrogen, a process that takes mere minutes to produce soft, sumptuous desserts.

Friendly staff members in lab coats churn out fun flavors that include, subject to availability, watermelon, chocolate & nuts, popcorn, Oolong tea & more.

Nitro-ice cream has captivated customers everywhere from America to Australia; N Brew show-runner Peter Tan was inspired by a tasting in Sydney to bring this to his home country Malaysia, with plans to embark on more branches eventually in multiple malls.

Two can share a nine-ringgit cup; the texture is terrific, thanks to a lovely lushness.

The ice cream is made without stabilizers & must be eaten immediately.

Liquid N2 tanks. Too gimmicky? Not when the results taste so satisfyingly distinctive.

At E@Curve, customers can also check out EspressoLab's most recently opened outlet.
Entry on EspressoLab @ Solaris Dutamas: March 8, 2012. Gardens Mid Valley: June 12, 2012.

This branch offers cute homemade macarons, with flavors like green tea & salted caramel.

Chocolate & red velvet cakes are also available, perfect to partner with coffee.

Love EspressoLab's mocha, kinda like thick hot chocolate with a caffeinated hit.

Iced coffee with cassis monin syrup? Fans of Ribena might like the blackcurrant twist.

Ending with ice cream, EspressoLab's affogato is always admirable. Hey, maybe both N Brew & EspressoLab could team up sometime to create something spectacular.

E@Curve, Mutiara Damansara.
NBrew's full-fledged cafe will open on the first floor, perhaps before mid-February.
