An adventurous ice cream parlour in Covent Garden.
Ever felt like you might be the next big thing in ice cream? Then get yourself down to Udderlicious, an independent parlour churning up a storm with a variety of organic ice creams (gelato’s over, dahling), where customers compete to compose a new flavour each month.
A recent champ? Seaweed. It shouldn’t have been good, but it was brilliant. Thick, rich and just a tiny bit salty, there were real pieces of algae in the wonderfully creamy whip. Proof in the pudding that with this, a new branch in Covent Garden, they’ve perfected a winning formula; the cutesy vibe and swing seat have been transplanted direct from the original Islington shop, and the ice cream has only got better.
A highlight was the raspberry cheesecake – sharp and fruity, with rich, crumbly bits of cake rolled in. Equally good was peanut butter and chocolate, factoring whole nuts smothered in swirls of chocolate cream (and a bargainous £2.95 a scoop). With 20-plus flavours on offer, you’re a bit spoilt for choice; luckily, the staff are so lovely they’ll let you taste everything before you buy. And there’s nothing you fancy, then worry not – there’ll be a rejig in no time. Anyone for chocolate and Marmite?
