Hat's off to Havmor for consistency: they have maintained their standards of ice cream and Punjabi food for more than four decades now. The brand began in Karachi in 1944, as a second income for the late Satishchandra Chona, an engineer, and was so famous even there that after Partition the person who took over the shop has retained its name! Today, the Chona family owns four restaurants in Ahmedabad and two in Vadodara, many parlours and snack bars, and an ice-cream brand that sells at many outlets without losing much by way of recipe adherence along the expansion. At the many Havmor outlets, you can pick from a huge range of ice creams, with seasonal launches and promotions happening all the time. Their Chowpatty Kulfi, which is a rare example of a factory-produced kulfi coming close to the real thing, their "roll cuts" (which is an innovative take-home as the ice-cream slices can be had straight from the disposable container without having to take out any crockery or cutlery), milkshakes and other offerings. The Chhole Bhature is excellent for a quick meal and snacks like samosas are really good. At the time of research, Havmor has announced that they are launching Nutty Belgian Dark Chocolate, Strawberry Cheesecake and Rich Coffee ice creams in tubs, and low-fat frozen desserts.
