The hot and humid climate of Mumbai makes it the perfect place to indulge in some mouth-watering ice-cream (not that we needed an excuse!). Luckily, the city has more than its fair share of local ice-cream parlours, guaranteed to help you stay cool this summer!
An ice-cream legacy, this parlour has been serving Mumbai delicious scoops of goodness for close to 80 years. Along with their sweet and creamy ice-cream collection, Bachelorr’s also serves a variety of snacks and sundaes. From the usual vanilla, chocolate and strawberry varieties, they also offer some unique flavours such as a tangy, sweet green chilly ice-cream. Especially packed during mango season for their signature mango ice-creams, this is just the place to beat the heat!
