Two words, okay one word...that has the potential to turn this frown upside down is...Ice-Cream! Don't be surprised if a hearty smile breaks on your face and the distinct voice (Mmmmm....) of satisfaction fills up your whole body with the first bite followed by every second bite. Forgive me if I am stating the obvious but this; obvious comes in hundreds of flavours and thousands of toppings. It would be rather rude if we go on counting our days without mentioning the best scoops in your town.
Ice-Cream! With each passing syllable, the urge to grab a spoon and devour the flavours lying on the palate goes higher and higher. Now, research shows that it takes about 50 licks to conclude one scoop of ice-cream, I say it would take only 20 or maybe 25 licks for an #IceCreamJunkies such as us to break that record. If your ice-cream cravings are as jacked up as your confidence, test this theory at these best ice-cream parlours in Delhi NCR.

Ever made googly eyes with a delectable soft serve? With Creme Borne's fun toppings that include gooey googly eyes now, you can. The place got its initial recognition with black ice-cream and party-ful topping that quite frankly have a different effect on different people. But once you step into this independent ice-cream parlour in CP; the tubs of flavours, colourful toppings such as candies, marshmallows, sprinkles, etc. and the smell of fresh waffles and churros will make goodbyes a bit harder.

Something as basic as ice-cream when devoured in style gives whole another feels and I think spending a couple of extra bucks on this experience is worth the money. Luxe ice-creams with Mr Fancy Pants ambience, OTT presentation, tempting flavours along with the very classy vibe is all the kick we sometimes need.

In the hustle-bustle of Chawri Bazar lies this gem of a place which might not look like much but their ice-creams sure can talk. Although a true Delhiite must have heard about Kuremal's famous kulfis from their fathers, grandfathers or fellow explorers. And I for one have been going to this shop since my childhood and I can confidently vouch for their close-to-the-heart palate of flavours ranging from Mango to Kala Khatta to Aam Papad, Sharifa & more along with their special infused kulfis.
