Forget sunscreen. The only way to face the heat is with a spoon in hand. Dhara Vora on the coolest ice-cream creations guaranteed to provide respite from the sun's relentless rays
Surprise by the Beach
The 'surprise' in this sundae is its size: Two scoops of chocolate ice cream, one scoop of vanilla ice cream, two bars of chocolate fudge, chocolate mousse and pieces of waffle, all garnished with chocolate chips and salted pistachios. This sundae is large enough to feed a crowd of at least three sugar-deprived individuals.
For: Rs 525 plus taxes

Orange-Vanilla-Raspberry Triple Scoop
Geddy's doesn't do sundaes, but don't let that deter you from customising your own double or triple-scoop creation. We loved our combination of Orange Choco Chips, Vanilla and Raspberry ice cream so much that we just had to share it with you. Request for a sprinkling of roasted almonds, a few drizzles of chocolate sauce, and viola, you have a sundae worthy of scooping into.
For: Rs 120

Strawberry Splendour Sundae
Two scoops of delish strawberry ice cream embedded with choco chips, drizzled with strawberry sauce and topped with whipped cream, and almonds. What's not to like!
For: Rs 118
