Scooping sundaes for over 100 years, this Forrest Hills staple that attracts all generations to come in for a taste. The reason they've been able to withstand the test of time? That's easy.

Closest thing to an Indian ice-cream place. And why not. Founded by Pooja Bavishi, Malai serves up flavors from around the world. There's "rose with cinnamon roasted almonds," "sweet milk," "star anise," "ginger root" and Turkish coffee. Look out for the season flavors, like the "sweet roti and ghee." Eat the ice cream served in a cone and with a variety of toppings like cardamom shortbread and peanut chikki.

Their signature Cereal Milk flavor is made with milk, cornflakes, brown sugar and a hint of salt, this throwback treat is one part dessert, two parts nostalgia (we're even going to say you can eat it for breakfast). If that's not your fancy, their chocolate-covered pretzle soft serve is just as addictive.
