I thought I'd blog about the oldest and favourite ice cream parlour in Mangalore : Pabbas..Ideals.. Both, being run by the same management. There's never a day when the place isn't packed with people. On weekends, you get a token just to get in.
Good news: they have a counter right outside where they provide take-aways.
Bad news: The take-aways aren't as fresh as the ones served at the table.
A look at the menu. You can zoom if you please:
This is my absolute FAVOURITE: TIRAMISU
So it might not look like your typical tiramisu, but it sure tastes pretty good! :) If you like a lil coffee ice cream on the top with a layer of chocolate cake and chocolate sauce right beneath, and then more vanilla and chocolate ice cream with little chocolate chips and cashew nuts within, this is definitely the one you should go for!
Close behind on my list to have here is: CHOCOLATE DAD
Now this ice cream is for those who dig solid/powdered caramel! Chocolate icecream with nuts, over which lies a layer if caramel and topped with a scoop of vanilla icecream and chocolate sauce! YUM..
For the Fruit addicts are the following perfect icecreams :
DILKUSH: I couldn't help but notice this to be one of the favourites with the older crowd - people who have been visiting the parlour since they were kids and are now parents or older. The name is supposed to mean HAPPY HEART. And most people claim that this is the state they achieve having eaten this icecream! :) Well, its got a scoop of strawberry, vanilla and butterscotch icecream with raisins, cashew nuts and pieces of fruits like apple, mango and so on, usually topped with strawberry sauce.
PARFAIT: This one has got loadsa fruits mixed with slabs of different icecreams.
BAMBINO: This one's got hot Carrot halwa sandwiched between a slab of Vanilla and a slab of Butterscotch ice cream. Its topped with chocolate and strawberry sauce.
ICE CREAM N JELLY: If you love you ice cream with Jelly, this one is for u:
Also available here are snacks like cutlets, sandwiches, mini pizzas, milkshakes, thick shakes, fruit juices!
CARAMEL THICKSHAKE: Another of my favs! :)
A must-visit for any ice cream lover in Mangalore!
On a scale of 5, I would give:
Value for money: 4.5 ( They keep hiking it a little by little to meet the price rates in Bangalore I guess :/ )
Price Range: 200(for 2)
