Koramangala is a food hub, with a new restaurant opening every now and then! The recent addition is Stoned Monkey, a dessert parlor which serves some fresh and delicious stoned icecreams. A tiny outlet with a bright-backlit wall and colorful illustrations of monkey.
Visited post-lunch with a friend to grab some of their special sundaes! The place had few customers who were indulging in icecreams and the happiness on their face said everything. I even had an opportunity to interact with the owner of the branch, who was kind enough to explain the process of Stone Icecream (sundaes made by beating up icecreams and sweet add-ons on a frozen stone).
Interesting fact – The Master (person who works with ice-cream), creates 31 varieties of stone beaten sundaes with 6 basic flavors (Vanilla, Chocolate, Butterscotch, Coffee, Strawberry, and Blackcurrant). The ice-creams are brought in from the central kitchen in small quantities to maintain the freshness and taste. They also sell Red Velvet and Chocolate cupcakes in small quantities.
Strong Coffee + Dark Chocolate + Milano Cookie = Via Milano! Probably the best way to describe. The usage of original Milano cookie adds flavor which is not found in its substitutes. Subtle in flavor, with light bitter notes. The joy of being able to have coffee and chocolate is immense!
Black Mischief is the only blackcurrant-based sundae. It is mixed with vanilla, sponge and white sauce (liqueur flavored) giving it a punch! A scrumptious treat not to be missed.
Cheese Garlic Bread, soft bread topped with chili flakes, garlic and a generous amount of melting cheese! This is a must need in between icecreams.
I’m a kind of person who loves to end a meal with sweet paan and in this case, icecream meal 😛 It is pretty obvious where I’m heading with this – Paan Banaras! A vanilla based ice cream with home-made maghai paan, dates, gulkan, topped with tutti-frutti and whipped cream! A delight in each bite 🙂
The prices may seem little high, but the taste and quantity make up for it. Three cheers to the entire team and happy helpers. I had a great experience and will surely be back for more! Highly Recommended 🙂
