We had a family friend who lived a stone throw's away from the Glen Waverley train station when I was growing up, back when the place I used to get my ice-creams was ...... at the local milk bar, because there was no other choice! Nitro Lab has recently opened up in the tall apartment building just outside of the station and we wandered over there for dessert after we feasted on our favourite Korean Fried Chicken over at Meega.
Nitro Lab, as its name suggests, is one of the liquid nitrogen gelato made-to-order dessert bars, offering 6 different flavours of ice-cream a month, as well as waffles and milkshakes on its menu. The prices are $7.5 for "a little bit" and $8.5 for " a bit more". The cups don't look big but I always find that the ice-cream goes a long way! We ordered 2 "a bit mores" and comfortably shared it between 2 adults and 3 kids.
The first was a vanilla pannacotta was a safe but most delicious flavour. The ice-cream was smooth as expected and the sauce and crumbly bits on top.
The Mango and Coconut is always a cool tropical combo and this was topped with mango pearls and coconut. Quite refreshing and my only gripe was that I would have loved a stronger mango flavour in the gelato.
Limited seating is available inside and also in front of the store. A nice refereshing dessert and it was certainly a hit with our kids! Can't wait to try next months' flavours.
