Classic Chocolate Milkshake at Bachelor’s
A speciality of this roadside joint located diagonally opposite Chowpatty Beach is a treat for chocolate lovers. Once you have the Chocolate Milkshake here, this is sure to become a regular halt on your drives to South Mumbai.

K.Rustom ice-cream
Mumbai’s iconic, hole-in-the-wall ice-cream parlor located at Marine Drive, serves the simplest yet the best flavors of ice-cream. Sandwiched between two thin wafer slices, the ice-cream is really cold at first but soon begins to melt. My favourites here are the Mint and Walnut Crunch Biscuits. However, if you’re a fan of fruity flavors, don’t give Raspberry a miss!

Sizzling Brownie at Cream Centre
Cream Centre is an all time favorite pure vegetarian restaurant. Their Sizzling Brownie is a slice of chocolate walnut brownie topped with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream and chocolate sauce served on a sizzling platter. Ideally, you’re supposed to wait for a few minutes for it to cool down but that never really happens. Prepare yourself to burn your tongue as this dessert is uncontrollable. Once you enter this place, you won’t want to leave for two reasons – their irresistible Cheese Nachos and the Sizzling Brownie.

Crisp, buttery and chocolatey, these cookies are sure to cast a spell on you. Bite into oozing Nutella with a pinch of sea salt and understand the true meaning of indulgence. After all, its a known fact, life is better with freshly baked cookies…and if they’re as delicious as these ones, who can ever complain?
