13443 Interested |

No, we are not talking about your run-of-the-mill vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry ice cream, but ice creams encased in gold, infused with booze, and bringing back ice cream parlour nostalgia from the 90s! These places are some of the best ice cream parlours in Hyderabad and serve the quirkiest ice cream flavours in town, one scoop at a time. Summer is getting sweeter! 

Bilal Ice Cream Parlour

Bilal’s is one of the oldest ice cream parlours around, and it has an iconic status. The Nizami architecture with old portraits, chandeliers and the old-world charm of its ambience are sure to brighten even a grim day. While their Anjeer Badam and Black Currant ice creams are pure joy, it’s their delicate rose petal-flavoured ice-cream that takes the glory. If you’re looking for something adventurous, their paan ice cream will satisfy your need.

Shah Ice Cream

Shah Ice Cream in Mozamjahi Market is a 68-year-old establishment serving delicious hand-churned ice cream that you cannot get enough of. Sit outdoors with a group of friends or make it a family ritual to grab this delicacy and enjoy flavours like Mango, Custard Apple, Chickoo, Muskmelon, Lychee and Coconut, among others (we tried them all). The ice cream is served as scoops on a plate rather than in a cup or cone.

Vintage Ice Creams

Love popsicles or 'pepsis' as we used to call them in childhood? You may have spotted Vintage Ice Creams at several flea markets in Hyderabad. There's always a crowd around their stalls, and rightfully so. Aside from the nostalgia factor, their flavours range from fruit to milk-based, like chocolate, badam, butterscotch, and blueberry. They also do bulk orders for parties, so order in to make them the talk of your party!

Famous Ice Cream

A visit to the Famous Ice Cream is a lesson in history itself, thanks to the location where it's set. Famous Ice Cream is over seven decades old in Mozamjahi Market and serves ice creams made in traditional methods from back in the day, incorporating seasonal fruits like Mango, Custard Apple, Chikoo, Muskmelon, Lychee and Coconut.

Naturals Ice Cream

Come summer and we're eagerly waiting for Naturals Ice Cream's Jackfruit and Mango Ice Creams that have real pieces of fruit in them.

Dumont is our fix for whacky ice cream flavours. Ever heard of Cake & Jam, Kheer, and Maple & Cinnamon Short Bread? Yup, those are just some of the options you’ll find here. Our picks are The Oreo Van Sundae, which has an Oreo biscuit on the top, Oreo ice cream at the bottom, lots of caramel in the middle, topped off with crunchy toffee, and Choco Orange, which is Malaysian cocoa ice cream mixed with orange pulp.

We’re always game to be a bit fancy.

If you’re passing by an Ibaco, stop and get their Mango Raspberry Ice Cream. It tastes like summer and all things tropical and is a great fix to this city's summer heat. What else do we suggest?

Ohri’s Eatmor

We cannot complete this list without mentioning the famous Bulls Eye Ice Cream. Local foodies know the hype this ice cream had a decade ago, and it’s unchanged. Ohri’s signature dessert is loaded with condensed milk chocolate fudge, served with a dollop of vanilla ice cream drizzled with more chocolate syrup. It hits all the right spots.
