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. 

    Disclaimer: While we would recommend getting them delivered to your doorsteps if you do choose to step out, please make sure you follow all safety precautions by practising social distancing and wearing masks at all times while heading out.

    Nirula's Ice cream


    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 most of their outlets are now shut given the current situation, you will still find few 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



    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


    A Pune import, Naturals now has around 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!).

    Price: Starting at INR 77
