The famous Iranian ice cream parlour K Rustoms, Churchgate, has been churning out interesting varieties of ice cream sandwiches for decades. Over the years, several mainstream restaurants in the city have also started including these delicious bites in their menus. While some eateries have kept the original cookie and vanilla ice cream recipe intact, others have introduced a few interesting twists.
