In the year 1887 the shores of Bombay (now Mumbai) opened its port to a passionate businessman from Kutch. He turned to his love for sweets for inspiration and 130 years later, the city that is still home to his family, can’t get enough of Taj Ice Cream. In this episode of Eat From the Heart journalist, writer and Founding Editor of TheWire.in Sidharth Bhatia guides us through the bylanes of Bhendi Bazaar for a scoop of his favourite roasted almond ice cream and a generous dollop of ice cream history.
