The most delicious Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches from Yolkin
Cityguide, LONDON, TRAVEL, To eat
Ice Cream Dreams in London. An Asian inspired ice cream shop in Chinatown is selling macaron ice cream sandwiches.
Chef Sammie Le’s place is called Yolkin because she uses the egg yolks that are left over from the macaron-making process to make the ice cream. She is the true queen of the macaron ice-cream sandwich.
And if you love ice cream, macaron or both or just want to taste something delicious and different. This is your place. In addition there are some bonus points for the Instagram friendly aesthetics.
Founded in 2015, Yolkin first started serving up its unique ice cream sandwiches at the Street Food Union market in Rupert Street.
Today the search of the tiny place that was only opened a couple of hours every week-end is over. Yolkin has a permanent site in Chinatown now!
Sammie was born in Hong Kong and grew up in South London. Therefore her recipes are inspired by the British comfort food of her childhood along Asian influences.
The available options change from week to week and can include: Hong Kong Style French Toast, Candyfloss, Red Velvet, Eton Mess, Salty Pretz, Honeycomb Macaron, Vietnamese Coffee, Toffee Apple, Peanut Butter Choc Chip or Lychee & Rose Macaron Ice Cream.
Best is to follow their Instagram for available flavours.
Conclusion: The ice cream is delicious and the macarons are perfectly baked! A delicious combination and so well made.
We think: Take the family for a yummy Dim Sum week-end lunch in Chinatown and treat them with a beautiful ice cream sandwich afterwards.
