Review: Marble Slab Creamery (in London, ON)

The brothers met up with a lawyer friend from China for some tasty ice cream! Instead of settling for the cheap tub of ice cream in the refridgerator, they decided to drop by the North Row branch of Marble Slab Creamery (there’s another one Downtown):

The place was largely open space with a few seats pushed towards the wall and storefront. The reasons were obvious even from the parking lot – there was a long, long queue that curled about within the shop. Part of it might have been the proximity of the cinema, part of it might have been the fact that they sell darn good ice cream. The place sold ice cream or yoghurt in waffles cones/waffle cups/cups mixed with “mixins” like Klor bar, strawberries and the like. Also available are brownies, cakes and apple pies. The emphasis, of course, is on the ice cream.

J. tried samples of the Ameretto, Birthday Cake and Mango flavours (they were all good!) but finally settled for Maple. On the advice of the staff, J. opted for the walnut mixin and the Skor bar mixin. Each additional mixin after the 1st costs CA$0.75. Worth it.

The man behind the counter took a large dollop of icream cream, flattened it out on the board, put on a generous portion of chopped walnuts with a layer of crushed Skor bar, mixed the whole thing up and put it in the cup as shown above. Tasty and with texture. Good stuff.

The brother, being more health-conscious, opted for the swirl yoghurt (chocolate and vanilla) with strawberries and Skor bar. A quick taste (thanks to J.’s quick spoon) revealed a smooth, creamy and none-too-sweet yoghurt treat.

Feast your eyes and drool.

P.S. J. cannot remember the prices. Rest assured, the ice cream is good value for money.

    seriously? i would hate to do anything on this page. wouldn’t you be worried about short-circuiting the remote pointers with all the drool?

    it was good place to test them because it was more interesting to look at / read than numbers in Excel spreadsheets. Who said anything about drooling? =P
