Selection of five in our opinion interesting Restaurants for Ice Cream in Central London.
Quo Vadis in Soho
Ice cream at Quo Vadis is a symbol of pudding’s necessarily excessive nature. Never served alone, it is part of a joyous piling up of textures and temperatures, whether cutting through a meringue with the bitterness of campari in a sorbet, stacking on top of cream and custard in harmony with a fruited frangipane tart, or sandwiching between profiteroles. The closest thing to ‘just ice cream’ might be praline and brown bread, but it’s still a hulking, unapologetic thing.
Quo Vadis Address: 26-29 Dean St, London W1D 3LL, United Kingdom
Morito in Clerkenwell
This slip of a tapas bar is still one of London’s most transportive dining rooms, and after some pitch-perfect gildas, lamb chops in a slick of anchovy butter, and fried chickpeas that will go down in handfuls rather than forkfuls, it’s time for ice cream. Malaga raisins, tempered by cream but still poppingly sweet, mingling with a judicious glug of Pedro Ximenez sherry that takes everything across to Spain in the dip of a spoon.
Morito Address: 32 Exmouth Market, London EC1R 4QE, United Kingdom
Rosslyn Coffee in City of London
This outstanding cafe in the City added a new string to an already full bow with its espresso soft serve, infused with coffee from Origin Coffee roasters and dusted with chocolate powder at serving. There’s no affogato on the menu, but ballers should ask to build one for an espresso-on-espresso delight.
Rosslyn Coffee Address: 78 Queen Victoria St, London EC4N 4SJ, United Kingdom
BAO Borough in Borough Market
Good news: the legendary deep-fried Horlicks ice cream bun has crossed the river to Bao’s new Borough Market site. Also worth seeking out at Bao Fitzrovia is the peanut ice cream roon bing, a savoury-sweet, coriander-spiked wrap that’s far greater than the sum of its already great parts.
BAO Borough Address: 13 Stoney St, London SE1 9AD, United Kingdom
Paladar in Elephant and Castle
Guacamole ice cream sounds like a dire wellness gimmick — and anywhere else, that’s probably exactly what it would be. But Paladar’s chef Jose Rubio-Guevara is serious about pan-Latin American food, and his avocado offering is nicely balanced (as opposed to #balanced). There’s also a dulce de leche ice cream with soy, but the sorbets are where he really shines — think pineapple, hibiscus and huacatay (a Peruvian herb from the marigold family), tamarillo and agave and Andean raspberry with chocolate mint.
Paladar Address: 4-5 London Rd, London SE1 6JZ, United Kingdom
