Beat the Heat with Hong Kong’s best Ice Cream Stores
In the peak of Hong Kong summer there’s no better cure than a large scoop or two of delicious, refreshing ice-cream. At a time when we are keeping an eye on our summer bods, we have whittled it down to the ice-cream shops that are truly worth the calories.
Emack & Bolio’s
A place that needs to be visited at least once during your time in Hong Kong. These ice-creams are a masterpiece guaranteed to get your insta followers drooling. Situated in Central it’s the perfect shopping pit-stop and with it being so conveniently located you really have no excuse to miss out!
Location: 26 Cochrane St, Central, Hong Kong
If you’re keeping visitors entertained then Gino’s two ice cream shops are placed in perfect spots. Take a stroll along stanley waterfront or a hike up the peak and give yourself a well earned reward. Their choices are aplenty so make sure you take advantage of their try before you buy and if you have a four legged friend with you, be sure to treat them to their famous doggie Gelato!
Locations: 23 Carmel Road, Stanley, Hong Kong
The Peak, Hong Kong
Combine egg waffles and ice cream and you’ve got yourself ice cream in an egg waffle cone. That’s just one of the concoctions they’ve put together but it doesn’t end there. We suggest checking out their ice cream creations and step out of the vanilla comfort zone.
Location: 45 Gough Street, Central, Hong Kong
You might be wondering why we are suggesting a coffee shop when we are talking about ice-cream shops, but believe it or not these baristas really know their stuff when it comes to gelato as well. Just watching their specialists work the ice cream on the tailor made ‘cold plate’ before popping it into one of their freshly baked waffle cones is almost as good as the ice cream itself… alright, maybe not!
Location: 22 Stanley Street, Central, Hong Kong
Science geeks pay attention! Lab Made isn’t about creativity or fancy toppings. Watch as your ice cream freezes in front of you using nitrogen. Lab Made doesn’t sound too natural to us but we can confirm that all their ice cream comes with no artificial colours.
Location: 6 Brown Street, Tai Hang, Hong Kong
If the summer bod diet is too tight to truly indulge or you have an allergy that takes away those moments. Happy Cow offer delicious dairy-free ice cream (which is also vegan). It’s the perfect excuse to enjoy a cold treat with no consequences, one that’s just as creamy and addictive. Calling everyone who is vegan or lactose intolerant, it’s time to celebrate with the good stuff.
Location: 33 Man Kwong street, Central, Hong Kong
We might go as far as to say this is the most decorated ice cream in Hong Kong and what’s better is it’s all 100% edible from decorations to the label! A great spot to take little ones, and you’ll never have to worry about them attempting to eat the cup when you look away for a split second.
Locations: Shop 104, 18 Tai Koo Shing Road, cityplaza, Quarry Bay, Hong Kong
Shop L3-10, Langham Place, Mong Kok, Hong Kong
