    Food8Lead7Sanchos
    Move over churros and tres leches cake. There’s a new Mexican dessert in town, and it’s none other than the chocolate nachos at Sanchos. The dish is made with bunuelo dough, shaped like tortilla chips. Originally used to make dessert dough balls, the dough is fried and dusted with cinnamon sugar and is served with vanilla ice cream. Rs 195++. At UB City, Vittal Mallya Road. Details: 7022545466

    Food8Lead4Hanoi
    There’s nothing more indulgent than wine and ice cream, and when you put the two together, it’s got to be something
    extraordinary. This Vietnamese restaurant, dishes up a decadent red wine and fig ice cream, which is pretty much as good as it gets. The bits of fig add to the strong wine flavour, which is like biting into frozen red wine. Rs 150 ++. At Phoenix MarketCity, Whitefield. Details: 49653315

     Food8Lead3Chai Point
    India does run on chai, but their paan kulfi milkshake will leave you asking for more. While paan is one of those inventions that you either love or hate, the milkshake version is a definite hit. Rs 65. At all Chai Point outlets

    Sattvam Food8Lead1
    Known for their healthy menu, created in keeping with yogic and Sathwik principles, Sattvam’s aloe vera curry is quite a treat. Made with aloe vera pulp, spinach, curd, dill, methi and ghee, the curry is best paired with rotis or steamed rice. Part of their buffet (Rs 630 upwards). At Sadashivnagar. Details: 23608000

     Food8Lead2aRaj Pavilion 
    If you’re looking to sink your teeth into the most unusual creations, look no further than this restaurant at the ITC Windsor. The menu features savoury ice creams with flavours such as rasam, salmon and fish roe, mango chilli, blue cheese, kasundi mustard, chicken tikka, sambar, sun-dried tomatoes, dal makhni and more. Part of their
    Sunday brunch (Rs 1,950++ upwards). At Sankey Road. Details: 41401224

    Thanco’s  Natural Ice creams Food8Lead5
    Heat up and cool down at the  same time with the green chilli ice cream at this popular parlour. The chillies are deseeded and mixed with milk, sugar and cream to create a combination that has made waves for both its uniqueness and sheer deliciousness. While it can be too hot to handle for some, we suggest you pair it with other conventional flavours like Belgian chocolate and vanilla. For something a little less pungent, opt for a scoop of ginger ice cream. `60 upwards. At Banaswadi. Details: 49652142

    Food8Lead6Nasi and Mee
    Turning the quintessential  dim sum into dessert is Nasi and Mee with their chocolate dim sums. The soft and silky dim sums ooze with molten dark chocolate when bitten into. A great accompaniment with their fried ice cream (vanilla or chocolate, topped with honey), we say. Rs 150. At 4th Block, Koramangala. Details: 7022545466
