Tastiest ice cream in London – Marine Ices, Chalk Farm

April 20, 2007

Marine Ices Tub

Naomi from Book Club suggested we meet here before going to see A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Roundhouse. I’ve been through Chalk Farm many times but, strangely, I have never noticed Marine Ices before. It sits opposite Chalk Farm tube station and next to The Enterprise pub, serving the most delicious frozen delights to ice cream lovers of impeccable taste. You can buy a cone or tub from the kiosk facing the road, or sit inside to experience the vast array of ice cream desserts.

Marine Ices

I decided to have a night off the diet and treated myself to a two-scoop tub of Italian Toffee and Pistachio. The flavours were distinct but subtle, and the ice cream itself was so creamy. Italian Toffee had a gentle flavour, sharpened up with sweet and crunchy toffee pieces. The fresh contrast of the Pistachio made it a perfect partner to the toffee. Tucking into this heavenly pudding gave Chalk Farm Road on a bright, sunny evening a sheen I had not experienced before.
