If you have been reading my posts every day, and all through, you’ll remember that we discussed the infamous Chennai Heat yesterday. What is my coping mechanism to counter the heat? Well, it’s Ice Cream!
I often realise that if there was no ice cream in the world, or I hated it (blasphemy!) I would be as slim as my patience is.
There is ice cream though, and some really wonderful local ones at that. Bless them, as they are the ones keeping me going as I mop my brow and sweat out the days in Sauna City.
A family pack of Arun Ice Cream.
Arun Ice Creams, are my absolute favourite. The good thing is you can get them everywhere, even at your local grocery store. I love their entire range, be it their Orange Ice Lolly or their mini Cornetto’s (they have flavours like Cotton Candy). Their Casatta though has a special place in my heart. After all, its Ice Cream AND cake together, how could I not like it? It is one ice cream I hate sharing!
Milky Way: Established in 1984, this is one of the oldest Ice cream parlours of Chennai. Locals have fond memories of this place, and the ice cream and desserts served here. Their Softy Sundaes and Softy’s are their best sellers. However, you can’t go to Milky Way and not try their all time popular, Titanic – 3 scoops of Vanilla Ice Cream, lots of fruit, a generous sprinkling of nuts, chocolate sauce , Strawberry Sauce and Mango Sauce, all served in a Boat shaped dish, no less! Milky Way has 13 Outlets in Chennai. No surprises why!
Freeze Zone is where I head to for the most amazing Softie’s and Kulfi’s. This is also the place that served Ice Cream Rolls long before people knew what they were, or were in fashion. Love the quality, the service and the pricing here.
Falooda : I was in for a surprise when found the most tempting Falooda in Chennai. No, really. Sangeetha Restaurant (G.N Chetty Road) serves the best ones. They have the Rose Falooda, which is a classic favourite. They also have a Sangeeta Special you should check out, and eat instead of a meal. The calories are worth piling on for this one.
