We’re in the last week of 2016, but there’s still a lot of eating and drinking to do. Here’s a run down of what you must try this week in Mumbai and Bengaluru
Sucres Des Terres
If, like us, you cannot get enough of Christmas, Sucres Des Terres has just the right thing. The artisanal ice creamery, known for its unique flavours is now serving the classic Gingerbread ice cream. Think a perfect wintery treat, warm flavours of spices mixing with rich cream. Bits of freshly-baked gingerbread folded in the smooth ice cream promise a festive treat. The ice creamery makes small batches, and requires at least 24 hours intimation for orders, so make sure you get your hands on a jar stat.
