Brownie, Sharifa Or Cheesecake: Delhi Has Ice Creams For All Palates

    We love the ice-cream carts that are parked near our house and we, of course, don't mind grabbing a popsicle right after our dinner while we are out for a stroll. But, don't you think each day calls for a different flavour at a different place? Hence, we've picked the best ice-cream parlours you can head to. 

    Nirula's Ice cream

    Nirula's

    Connaught Place, Delhi

    Throughout our childhood, we have spent most of our time at Nirula's either hogging on burgers or on ice-creams. Though now most of their outlets are now shut, you will still find some of their ice-cream parlours open. Whether you favour their Hot Chocolate Fudge (we sure do!) or their Red Velvet ice-cream, you’ll always leave feeling happy and, in most cases, nostalgic.

    Price: Starting at INR 50

    Must try ice-cream: Dark Fudge Brownie

    Giani's

    Giani's

    Greater Kailash - 2, Delhi

    Giani's is another one of those old-is-gold spots. In business since 1956, they’ve only grown and now, you can spot them all over the city. They’re famous for consistency and flavours such as Honey Nut Crunch, Punjabi Delight and Kaju Kishmish, and believe us, that’s only the tip of the ice—we want to say berg, but we’ll go with ‘cream sundae’ instead.

    Price: Starting at INR 50

    Must try ice-cream: Belgian Chocolate

    Naturals

    Natural Ice Cream

    Connaught Place, Delhi

    A Pune import, Naturals now has nine outlets in Delhi-NCR and boy, are we glad. As the name suggests, the focus here is on natural ingredients. From their best-selling Tender Coconut to watermelon, chikoo and even jackfruit, each flavour is bursting with freshness. They’re not high on preservatives, so if you’re taking some home, make sure you finish it quickly (which is the easiest thing to do!).

    Price: Starting at INR 77

    Haagen- Dazs

    Haagen Dazs

    DLF Phase - 3, Gurgaon

    Minus 30

    Chanakyapuri, Delhi

    Did you ever believe ice cream could be… healthy? With Minus 30 and their endeavor to create artificial-flavour free ice-cream, it actually kinda is. Prepared with fresh fruits, each bite is full of flavour. The only catch is that you have to place your order in advance. Simply, fill-up the form on their website and you are good to go.

    Movenpick

    You can indulge in the creamy sweet goodness at Movenpick's small kiosk at Select Citywalk.

They also offer tasting platters if you want to sample a little bit of everything.

    Jaatre

    Jaatre

    New Friends Colony, Delhi

    With fresh ingredients, offbeat flavours and ice-cream served in cute, coconut shells, Jaatre is perfect for yummilicious ice-creams. They’re a fresh change from the synthetic, overly sweet ice-creams that taste like frozen lumps of sugar. This tropical dessert parlour now has three outlets in Delhi and is the perfect place for residents to escape the overwhelming heat with scoops of Sharifa and mango.

    Price: Starting at INR 80

They come in flavours like strawberry cheesecake and cookie-dough. Creme Borne's toppings include adorable, googly eyes and stuff like marshmallows, gems, etc.
