While Bi-Rite is the undisputed Mission favorite for ice cream, Bombay Ice Creamery offers a far more exotic variety made with more cream and less sugar. While Indians prefer flavors like rose petal, saffron pistachio, and cardamom, you can still score scoops of cookies & cream, rocky road, or plain vanilla if the exotic flavors aren’t to your liking.
And while you can’t order a hot fudge sundae with whipped cream and a cherry on top, you can instead indulge in a falooda, their version of an ice cream float, where the ice cream comes with milk, rose syrup, vermicelli, and flavored seeds called tukhmalanga. Or try a kulfi, their version of a sundae.
