I remember going back to the late 90s seeing people line up for ice-cream. By far the most popular govt run food service place. Recently supplanted in quality and choice by a few new private ice-cream parlours. If you want to try but not line...More

Heard so much about this ice cream parlour and it certainly is an experience worth visiting. Be prepared to queue for a long time to get in. Situated in a shady park the pavilion is worth looking inside for its modernist architecture, but as others...More
