Nothing lifts me up like a double scoop of my favorite ice cream. After the spicy curry and rice staple dinner, all I can think about is a cooling, refreshing scoop of ice cream. If you’re in Mumbai and love ice cream as much as I do, I have a treat for you! Listed below are the most outlandish flavours of ice cream that actually taste divine and guess what, you get them right here in Aamchi Mumbai! In the sweltering heat of the city, a cup of ice cream is like a Christmas gift on a regular day!
1. Macaron Ice Cream
Renowned pastry chef, Pooja Dhingra did us a HUGE favor by combining two of the best things invented by man after electricity and the wheel ; Macarons and ice creams. This limited edition addition had us salivating for the short time it debuted on their menu. We're hoping that miracles like these happen on a regular basis. Cherry on the cake? They made them in varied flavors. Let's hope our prayers to get this delicacy back work.
