Creamistry in Irvine?

Have any CH's tried this new ice cream place in Irvine? They supposedly make each serving of ice cream to order, freezing it with liquid nitrogen. Is it any good?

  1. I was there yesterday and got an espresso flavored ice cream using their premium ice cream base. The flavor was good, but the texture seemed a bit gummy. However, I'm not sure if that's due to the lack of overrun in the ice cream. Since it just opened, it took 15-20 minutes just to order and then another 10 minutes or so to get my ice cream.

    For some reason, Creamistry is using bamboo spoons which I found totally incongruous as they are rough, which distracts from the creaminess, and also impart a woody taste with every spoonful. They need to switch to plastic spoons.
