World's Strangest Desserts
Nitrogen Ice Cream: Manila
While NASA has long been flash-freezing meals for its astronauts, only a few daring restaurants have explored the new frontier of molecular gastronomy. One such pioneer, Zenses Neo-Shanghai Cuisine at Manila’s A. Venue Mall, serves a “Nitro” ice cream: fresh cream batter frozen in front of guests with fast-acting liquid nitrogen. The ice cream comes in unusual flavors like rose, lavender, and osmanthus as well as a simulated “bacon and eggs.” Check out our slideshow of the World’s Strangest Ice Cream for more eyebrow-raising flavors worldwide.
