Relive Your Childhood At The Ice Cream Factory
What started as an answer to the lack of Indian dessert options has grown into a network of 30 outlets across eight cities today. Ice Cream Factory & Shahi Durbar is a dessert lover’s paradise. This entrepreneurial dream of two brothers has earned them the crown of “Falooda Kings” of Mumbai.
Located in Andheri East, Ice Cream Factory & Shahi Durbar serves more than 400 desserts. The outlet is divided into two parts – one for Ice Cream Factory and the other for Shahi Durbar.
Ice Cream Factory Menu
The Shahi Durbar has an exciting array of Indian desserts from kulfis and faloodas to firnis, malpua, gulab jamuns, milkshakes and more. If you think choosing from four or five kulfi flavours is tough, try picking from 20.
Must try: The Pan Falooda is wholesome, creamy and naturally refreshing. The place also offers other flavours like anjeer, dry fruit and mixed fruit. Coming to the milkshakes, apart from the usual flavours, there are some exotic options such as avocado and dragon fruit.
The Ice Cream Factory is the other part of the parlour. The magic of ice cream making takes place right in front of you. The place mixes and matches different ingredients, including biscuits, wafers and cookies, to whip up some innovative desserts.
Must try: Anything with liquid nitrogen (which is quite popular) just for the theatrics. Not surprisingly, it’s the dragon breath poppers that are a rage amongst youngsters. You can also revisit your childhood with Parle-G biscuit, Horlicks and Bournvita ice creams.
In the mood for something adventurous? Try the food grade charcoal with muesli or maybe their pan and chocolate rolls. They also have the usual ice cream variety with Nutella, Ferrero Rocher and Red Velvet, along with a diverse range of waffles and sundaes.
