After our initial Iscreamist experience, my daughter has a thing for frozen yogurts. I remember that they have these on the menu so we went back and studied the menu closely. There was a couple enjoying their Dragon's breath S'Mores. We already tried that so I ordered the Strawberry frozen yogurt. I had my little girl go up the counter so she could see for herself the process of making her treat. They poured a strawberry mixture in a cup then poured the liquid nitrogen after. The smoke and the sizzling bubble sounds made my daughter's eyes go wide. The strawberry mixture was immediately frozen! lol Amazing what they can do with liquid nitrogen. There were also chunks of fresh strawberries in the dessert. Once served, the cup was still smoking. My daughter was almost afraid to try it but after I took a huge bite, she ate it. Our mouths were also both smoking after a spoonful of the yogurt. It's really cold! But the strawberry yogurt was really good! Fresh strawberries and creamy strawberry cream all frozen to perfection. I really love this place, they may not have an extensive menu, but every item is really good. Plus, the experience is unforgettable! I wish they have more branches though lol

Amarula? You're calling me Amarula, kuya?! :-p
Just OK 2013-06-06 (Related Review)
I initially wanted to try the Dragon's Breath variants, but they ran out of it; so, I went for the Ice Creams. I don't wan the regular Ice cream so I ordered the Amarula Ice Cream.

"Amarula is a cream liqueur from South Africa. It is made with sugar, cream and the fruit of the African marula tree (Sclerocarya birrea) which is also locally called the Elephant tree or the Marriage Tree. It has an alcohol content of 17% by volume. It has had some success at international spirit ratings competitions, winning a gold medal at the 2006 San Francisco World Spirits Competition" - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amarula

I actually haven't tried the alcoholic beverage yet, so I did not know what to expect.

The staff made the Ice Cream as I was watching. It's amazing how adept they are in using liquid nitrogen in creating the treat!

They served me the dessert in a ceramic cup. I actually like the taste of the Ice Cream, and probably I'd like the Amarula liq on it's own.

I look forward to trying the Dragon's Breath Ice Creams next time.

Blow me S'more

We went here to try the Dragon's breath kind, but we also ordered the typical specialty ice creams. I got smores. The smores is what you'd expect it to be -- chocolatey, wafery, and marshmallow-y. But the one that made it special was the fact that you'd dip it in liquid nitrogen.

The price: meh.
The taste: meh.
The experience: awesome!

Literally Cool
Just OK 2012-07-18

 Iscreamist

A small place located in Diliman, Quezon City that serves desserts with liquid nitrogen.

 S'mores

Price: P48

Description: cut graham crackers, marshmallow, wafer, and chocolate syrup combined together like mini sandwich placed in like a Popsicle stick served with liquid nitrogen.

Personal Review: My friend told me that her brother and his girlfriend visited a shop in Diliman where they serve extraordinary dessert because they serve it with Liquid Nitrogen. She showed me some of their pictures and I find it real cool and went to that place to experience it personally.

The place was very small. They only have three tables inside. Apart from being small, there was only one attendant taking the order and making them.

When my friend and I arrived, the two empty tables were unkempt. Since he was the only one there, we patiently waited for him to clean up. Luckily, the couple sitting to the much cleaner table left so we went their immediately. When the guy finished cleaning up the tables, I ordered their French Macaron Dragon Breath. Unfortunately, the only available was the S'mores.

He told us that he needs to make the S'mores and it will take 5 to 10 minutes. It was a good thing that I really want to experience this badly so I agreed to wait. If I was not that eager, we left the moment we saw that there were no clean place to sit down to.

While waiting, I saw their huge menu that was patterned to a Periodic Table. There I saw that they also serve milk shakes and yogurt shakes.

When we got our order, I asked the "dude" (Sorry for the term but yeah, he looks pretty much like a skater dude that works here part-time) how do you eat it because I saw in their wall regarding how cold the liquid nitrogen is that it can actually burn your skin. Kinda scary right? He said that we just need to dip the S'mores to the liquid nitrogen for like 15 seconds then eat it immediately. Just keep on chewing until it's gone.


  Dragon's Breath Smores


Well, it was kind of scary from the beginning because it was really smoking and very cold. But once your done with the first S'mores, there is nothing to be afraid of. tongue

I wasn't able to really taste the S'mores because it was really cold inside my mouth. Although, I know that there was Graham crackers, marshmallow, wafer, and chocolate inside. I think the only ingredient that I was able to taste was the wafer. I can't wait to try their other Dragon Breath products like that Bacon popcorn and the French Macarons. I hope it will taste better than their S'mores.

Also, I hope that the attendant would smile a little and be enthusiastic so his customers would be enticed to order more than explaining the products with a monotonous tone of voice. I'm just saying...

Dining with Liquid Nitrogen
Smile 2012-07-03
Liquid Nitrogen with ice cream? Why not?

 The Iscreamist Menu

   Macarons with Liquid Nitrogen (Dragon's Breath)

 

 Dragon's Breath

   Fun!

Price Php 49 for 2 pieces of macaron

Description Mini French Macarons served with glasses of Liquid Nitrogen. Once the macarons are dipped, it sizzles and instantly freezes!

Personal Review Found out about this place after viewing a friend's photos in Instagram. I asked for the name of the restaurant, Iscreamist. I checked their Facebook page and was able to get their address. My husband, daughter and I trooped to Diliman and after a few wrong turns, found the place.

They only have two parking spaces right in front of their place and we were able to get one. The Iscreamist is quite small with few tables and comfy couch chairs. After studying the menu, we decided to get the Dragon's Breath Macaron lol We had a plate of four mini French Macarons and two styro cups of liquid nitrogen. Liquid Nitrogen causes food to instantly freeze, care must be taken in handling this, it can burn your skin if spilled. Also, let the food completely freeze before eating it as it can burn your mouth.

We dipped the macaron in the Nitro and it immediately sizzled! Scary at first but eventually we all had fun dipping the macarons that we almost forgot to taste it lol My husband ate one while it was still smoking and smoke came out of his mouth, hence, Dragon Breath! The macarons were good, too small though. We wanted to try it with S'Mores but it wasn't available. After a while, the Liquid Nitrogen evaporated from the styro cups so we ordered more! I also tried their Strawberry yogurt with Liquid Nitrogen splashed on top, it was so cool! The whole cup of yogurt smoked and sizzled! The strawberry fruit was instantly frozen, hahahaha!

Not only is it fun to eat here, but some of the items are really good. We plan to go back and try some of their malted marshmallows and blueberry yogurt, yummy! The Iscreamist is open from 2 to 11pm.
