Written by Hafsa Sheikh
I’m Hafsa Sheikh, a fearless food critic extraordinaire! My insatiable hunger for exceptional cuisine has led me to explore some of Pakistan’s most renowned restaurants and hidden eateries.
You can call me a foodie adventurer, blazing a trail through the culinary wilderness of Pakistani food, Fast Food, Chinese delicacies, Continental delights, and the wonderful realm of beverages. Just so you don't have to!
With my fork as my compass and my stomach as my guide, I’ve discovered some of the country’s most delectable delights. Join me on this journey, and get ready for a wild ride!
I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I couldn’t resist. Now, before you raise an eyebrow and question my sanity, let me spill the beans. As fate would have it, Raju from 3 Idiots is one of my favorite characters ever. So naturally, when a friend of mine told me about Rajoo Ice Cream, I couldn’t help but laugh out loud. Yes, the fact that this ice cream parlor would have the same name as the Raju who once pranked his way through engineering college was one of the biggest plot twists ever.
And here’s the kicker – it’s not just any ice cream parlor; it’s a Bonafide legend that has stood the test of time in Karachi’s food scene. Can you believe it? I certainly couldn’t. Life, my friends, has an uncanny knack for serving up surprises that could rival even the quirkiest Bollywood movie. All Izz Well, indeed!
So, what’s on the Menu?
- Ice Cream Flavors
- Special Treats
Taste: Bohat Aaala!!
1. Ice Cream Flavors
Chocolate Chips: First up, the Chocolate Chips – the velvety chocolate swirled with crunchy bursts of pure joy. With every spoonful, I found myself lost in the rich embrace of cocoa goodness, a sensation that could make even the grumpiest of days turn into a party.
Price: PKR 140
Pista: And then there’s Pista – a dance of pistachio dreams that transported me straight to nutty heaven. The delicate pistachio flavor, like a whispered secret of the orchard, mingled perfectly with the creamy base. Each bite felt like a playful tug at my taste buds, reminding me that indulgence is an art form in itself.
Price: PKR 140
But let’s talk about Mango – a tribute to the sunny embrace of summers past. As the spoon carved through the orange delight, a burst of the freshest mango flavor greeted my palate. It was as if the essence of a sun-kissed orchard had been captured and churned into this frozen ecstasy. So, close your eyes, and you’d think you were biting into the juiciest mango, complete with the dribbles down your chin and the sweet nostalgia of carefree afternoons.
And now, a creation that’s practically a carnival in a bowl! Two scoops of rose ice-cream swirled in a blissful waltz with milk, noodles, fresh fruit, dry fruit, jelly, pineapple, and the oh-so-magical Rooh Afza. It defies explanation – sweet, refreshing, and utterly enchanting.
2. Special Treats
Jelly Ice Cream: And how could I forget the Jelly ice-cream? Two scoops of Peshawari and Pista ice-cream accompanied by a wobbly, colorful companion – jelly! It was a delightful duet, a duet of velvety creaminess and jiggly, wiggly joy that made me feel like a kid in a candy store. With every spoonful, I couldn’t help but giggle at the sheer delight of it all.
