Meet the sweet treat that is impossible to not take a picture of- Milkcraft’s ice cream. The Milkcraft creamery serves ice cream frozen with liquid nitrogen and scooped into a Hong Kong bubble cone. The treat receives so many well-deserved social mentions that the business won UPshow’s Most Engaging Quick-Serve location for the year of 2016!
