Dessert Spots

First, I’d like to introduce you to London’s original Filipino ice cream parlor, where they serve the best Halo-Halo in town. Mamasons pride themselves on capturing “the simple goodness.  

1. Mamason’s Dirty Ice Cream

2. Humble Crumble

There is nothing humble about this dessert offering. The show-stopping crumbles are full of personality. Hailed as “Britain’s most nostalgic dessert,” you can customize your creation. 

This Chinatown-based parlor introduces “popular Japanese street food (to the) West.” Be sure to sample their taiyaki, which you can order as savory or sweet. It costs $7.70 for this well-loved pastry for two. 

3. Taiyakiya

Feast your eyes on this creme brulee-crepe-cone creation. Then, let your taste buds take it from there. Seductively tucked within Seven Dials Market, each quirky cone is made fresh to order, with the vendor’s signature caramel flavor paired on top. 

4. Boolay Crepes

Mochi is another Japanese treat worth trying. Forget everything you thought you knew about this unique ice cream. The little balls have a soft, chewy outer layer made with soft mochi dough and a creamy gelato base in the middle. 

5. Little Moons Mochi
