    125K  Views

    We love the ice cream carts that are parked near our house and we obviously don't mind grabbing a popsicle (or a few) 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? If you're nodding yes with great enthusiasm 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. You'll easily be able to find one in or around your locality. 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 for your childhood.

    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.

    Naturals

    A Pune import, Naturals has about seven 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!).
