The ice-cream scene in Shanghai this summer is anything but chilly. There is the locally inspired salty egg-yolk flavor, which doesn't taste as entrancing as it sounds, especially after more than one hour of lining up for it. Then there's the very We-Chat-Momentable return of the Magnum pop-up store, which allows sweet tooths to create their own ice-cream bars. But the quiet sensation of summer desserts is the refreshing new offering from Asian bistro Ginger: pandan ice cream. By infusing the ice-cream base with the aromatic leaf overnight, Singaporean chef Jet Lo manages to give the not so strongly flavored pandan leaves some oomph, recreating the summer treat so loved by many Southeast Asians.

Ginger, 91 Xingguo Road, Shanghai. 021-3406-0599.

If you're looking for a soft-serve ice-cream treat, a Godiva store might not seem the obvious place to find it. But the famed Belgian chocolatier is trying something new this summer, offering both dark chocolate and vanilla-white chocolate tastes of velvety refreshment with its trademark confection. You can choose different sauces to customize a little, in a crispy cone dusted with crunchy chocolate biscuits.

Available at all 109 Godiva stores in 29 Chinese cities.
