Ice Cream Works, Chowpatty- Review

Roochster

Ever since Gelato shut down at Chowpatty, I was wondering what would replace it. When I saw it from outside, I was like “Shit not another ice cream place!”, but then Ice Cream Works by Cream Centre sells more than just Ice Creams which made me want to go check it out!

What do you get there?  Ice creams, ice cream sunadaes, cassatas, Ice cream cakes, snacks like nachos, fries, rolls, sandwiches, pizzas and pastas. They have some really interesting flavours like Gajar Halwa, Sticky Chocolate, Hazelnut, kulfi, paan, etc. My brother and I had Nachos and a Nutty Sundae which basically had chocolate ice cream, nuts and chocolate sauce in a chocolate waffle cup. The cheesy nachos were yum and the sundae was chocolicious! I wish we could’ve tried more…the ice cream cakes looked super tempting!

Ambience & Service– Located bang opposite Chowpatty beach, near Café Coffee Day, Ice Cream Works by Cream Centre is a lovely place! Lots of white and light blue has been used with chic and classy furniture. They have place to sit in case you want to sit down and enjoy your ice cream or have a small snack before your dessert. The service is good.

Prices– The Ice creams start at Rs. 38 and up depending on the flavour you choose. The Sundaes are for Rs. 120 and up. The snacks are all between Rs. 98 and Rs. 148. We paid Rs. 256 for Nachos and the Nutty Sundae and both were totally worth it! The pricing is just right.

Verdict– I loved what I had and can’t wait to try more! If you’re an ice cream person, totally go and try Ice Cream Works! You’ll love it!

iCremeso, Fort- Review

Roochster

Here’s a new ice-cream place in town! What sets it apart from the others? Read further to find out.

Not just another ice cream– The thing about this place is that the ice cream is made in front of you. No, it’s not like Ice Stone Factory where you can choose add -ons to the ice cream and mix them together. Out here, it’s made from scratch, meaning the milk you choose (normal/yogurt/low-fat/soya) is put in a machine and some nitrogen gas is used to freeze it into ice cream after which the flavour you choose is added from an injection type of tube. Then you can choose toppings to make your ice cream yummier. All the flavours they have here don’t contain any preservative which is a good thing. As of now, I don’t think they have waffle cones but I hope they introduce them soon!

Where is it? – iCremeso is located at Fort, opposite the famous Sterling Cineplex. It shares space with Billo’s Café and you might find it a little small but its ok for an ice cream place.

What we had– As of now they only have the normal milk and yogurt and only serve in medium and large cups. I had the Chocolate Hazelnut flavour and Oreo sprinkles as a topping. I really liked it but wished it tasted more chocolaty. One friend had the Orange Toblerone flavour with Gummy bears. Both my friends liked it but I didn’t because of the orange taste. Another friend had the Raspberry flavour with MnMs. I liked it but liked mine better! 😛 There are many more flavours to try- Blueberry, passion fruit, Biscottino, Bubble gum, Green tea, etc.

How much? – The small cup is for Rs. 65, medium for Rs. 90 and large for Rs. 140. I must admit one thing- the scoop is a little small for the price. We all had medium cups thinking they were small.

Verdict– I definitely will go back and try some more flavours! Go try!
