N2 Extreme Gelato
Kinky Kinder, 8AUD + Red Velvet Cheesecake, 8AUD
N2 Extreme Gelato does legit gelato mixes with liquid nitrogens. My favourite of the night was hands down the Red Velvet Cheesecake which had lots of red velvet sponge on top of a cup full of vanilla gelato. The cream cheese in the middle was the best part. The Kinky Kinder was topped with dark chocolate crunch and injected with a syringe full of hazelnut wonders. They do change their menu pretty often, so do check their Instagram page for flavour updates. N2 Extreme Gelato just ranked up my list on one of the top gelato places in Melbourne, all for that Red Velvet Cheesecake flavour. I propose they should make it a permanent flavour.
Passionfruit Meringue Pie, 8AUD + Brokeback Moment, 8AUD + Double “O” Cheesecake, 8AUD
The second time of visit they offered a different menu. We had a fruitilicious Passionfruit Meringue Pie topped with shortbread, milk gelato passionfruit pulped and blow-torched meringue. It had that mild citrus kick and it was my favourite out of all three.
The Brokeback Moment had vanilla gelato base, topped with honeycomb chocolate and served with a caramel syringe. Its sweet on top of sweet and it was almost too nectarous.
Double “O” Cheesecake was a delight with crushed oreo cookies packed within the cheesecake gelato. I loved how the top layer is coated with white chocolate and they would give you a hazelnut syringe with it. This was also superb!
Liquid nitrogen liquid turns to a solidified form through crystallisation. Its simple science but yet, what in tarnation?! I still giggled with euphemism getting to see the process. The waiter/waitresses were seen wearing lab uniforms and clear goggles. Although I still question them for not wearing gloves, what if you freeze making accidental contact with that almost -200°C fluid?! Oh well, all I can say is that they are one heck of a dedicated bunch and #prayforthehands. Don’t expect gluten free, vegan, fat free gelato from N2 Extreme Gelato. Gobble on the full cream milk, cream, real sugar and everything else that is sinful. It was especially delicious and I don’t even feel sorry at all.
