Ganu Shinde Ice Cream

An iconic Pune brand of ice-cream, nothing in this world can beat the nostalgia and the creamy mango ice cream at Pune’s 165-year-old dessert joint, Ganu Shinde in Narayan Peth. Starting at INR 40, we recommend their classic amba ice-cream. Even if it does not feature an array of flavours, the authentic fresh quality is alluring and spiriting enough. If you’re not up for the mango ice-cream, don’t leave the place without trying the pista, jambhul and the sitaphal ice cream.

Cost for two: INR 150
