Marble Slab (Denman and Davie, West End)

Calories consumed with good friends don’t count. At least, that’s what I tell myself. And that’s what I told my good friend Rebecca Bollwitt (Miss604) in order to convince her to join me for some ice cream (originally we were going to go for a very healthy frozen yogurt at Qoola, but they were closed) after I took her for lunch to Miko Sushi (for her pre-birthday lunch). So, we headed almost next door to Marble Slab.

I ordered a small size cup of cotton candy flavor ice cream with blackberries (pictured above). The beautiful thing about Marble Slab is that you get to see them mix the ice cream and add-ons right there, on a marble slab (hence the name). Rebecca ordered double chocolate ice cream with some almonds which looked absolutely delicious too. I am totally hooked on Marble Slab, and I’ll definitely come back sometime soon!

Once your desired flavor has been selected, the magic begins. We scoop the ice cream onto a frozen marble slab, where your choice of fruits, nuts and candies, known as Marble Slab Creamery “mixins,” will be skillfully blended in with the ice cream, then finally piled high on the delectable waffle cone of your choosing. The result is your very own, one-of-a-kind dessert. From there, repeat as desired, which will probably be often.

I am totally addicted now to Marble Slab. This is not going to be helpful for any weight loss. But it’s SO yummy.

Disclosure: I paid for both of our ice creams out of my own pocket.

I’ve only been to the slab once… and it overwhelmed me.
I’d like to go again sometime, but I think because of I am sometimes slow at making a decision when presented with a huge assortment of options I haven’t gone back!

It’s also only a block away from my place too!
