Today, we have a new realm of the quirkiest flavours to conquer, if you dare. Of course, I do love the classic takes on regular ice cream – give me a mint choco-chip or cookies ‘n’ cream any time. But there are now quite a few new combinations stealing the spotlight. If your palate is looking for something beyond ordinary, here are the top 7 ice creams to try in Mumbai – it doesn’t get crazier than these!
Guava Chili Sorbet @ The Sassy Spoon
Would a spicy ice cream taste good? Well, you wouldn’t know till you head to The Sassy Spoon at Nariman Point. Just one bite of this sorbet is more than enough for you to feel heat of the red chilies, the sourness of the guava, and the warmth of the black pepper. This ice cream also contains a tiny dash of chat masala, which makes it even more appetising.
Chai Ice Cream @ Masala Library
Masala Library’s Chai Ice Cream is the perfect dessert for your inner tea lover. This refreshing ice cream is home-made and is served with a topping of the cutting chai foam. What’s more, you will also get a serving of tasty Masala Cinnamon Cookies on the side.
Drunken Waffle Sundae @ Indigo Delicatessen
I wonder who came up with the idea of adding booze to desserts – whoever it was, the idea is a winner! The Drunken Waffle Sundae offers you the best of both worlds. The bottommost layer of this sundae consists of deep-dish waffles, which are topped with scoops of chocolate as well as rum and raisin ice cream. The next layers include granola; and let’s not forget the jelly that goes on top of it. – is your mouth watering already?
Bubbling Kulfi @ Spice Klub
One of the most insane ice creams that you will find in Mumbai is Bubbling Kulfi, which is served at the Spice Klub vegetarian restaurant. This eatery is renowned for its deconstructed food, and it takes a similar approach with the Kulfi which is served to you in a flask that contains liquid nitrogen. You can also choose from five delectable flavours, namely, caramel, rabdi, rose, blueberry, and chocolate.
Beer Popsicles @ The White Owl – Brewery & Bistro
Chilled beer and popsicles are the two best things to have on a very hot day. In Mumbai, you can enjoy the best of both these worlds by trying the Beer Popsicles. These popsicles are made from freshly brewed beer and are served on a base of the butter cookie crumbs.
Macaroon Ice Cream @ Le 15 Patisserie
Creamy ice cream meets crisp, chewy, and soft macaroons – a combination that you must definitely try if you are a fan of desserts. Created by the very talented Chef Pooja Dhingra, you can enjoy it in a variety of flavours, including dark chocolate, salted caramel, and vanilla. You really have to taste this one to believe it!
