Baraf ka gola is Dubai’s cool new dessert. Made with crushed ice, and drizzled with fruity toppings, these golas will take you back to your childhood days. Tried it yet?
If you’re a fan of Indian cuisine, then Karama is the go-to in Dubai. Having said that, we also found a new, hideout which sells the yummiest baraf ka golas- just like the ones you spot in Mumbai gullies.
Ask anyone residing in Karama and they will tell you what a household name Elco is. The restaurant is known for dishing out lip-smacking South Indian, North Indian and Chinese delicacies, but we also found our summer BFF here! Once you’re here, we would say its perfectly okay to skip the main course and dive straight into the ice golas.
We tried the rose, mango and Kala Khatta (a sweet/salt mix of gola, sprinkled with chaat masala & lemon juice), and boy they emerged as clear winners. The crushed ice lolly is made with chunks of crushed ice, which is then drenched in fruity toppings of your choice. Sounds ‘cool’ right?
The delicious ice cones aside, Elco also has a little something for mango lovers this summer. The mango seasonal masti menu has all things mango and we bet you’re going to be spoiled for choice. From fresh mango combinations to kulfis and quirky mango-based summer coolers, there is more mango than you can ever think of. So, dive!
