Haagen Dazs has been a favorite Ice Cream brand of mine for quite a long while. Four months ago in Johannesburg i remember dragging somebody or other from the CSK (including our own M.S.D and his Missus ) to the Haagen Dazs parlour every evening at the Sandton Mall. I have done that to my wife and daughter whenever we have traveled abroad.
So when I had an invite to check out the Newly launched Haagen Dazs premium lounge in Chennai. I jumped at the offer. The one thing I noticed is that the ambience is lovely and is obviously pretty uniform the world over. They have the Displays on the Right as you enter and the seating on the other side.
The people around were busy sampling the ice creams. I went straight for the Belgian Chocolate It is sort of my ice cream barometer test of Goodness. It tasted Yumm (as usual)...and convinced me that they are obviously importing the ice cream since the taste seems to be consistent with what I have had in any part of the world.
They then demonstrated their specialty " the fondue" which was basically a MAMMOTH bowl of chocolate surrounded by a variety of fruits, cookies, Brownies, mini scoops of ice creams etc...(priced at 1395 plus tax)
Single scoop Ice cream : Rs. 180
Double scoop Ice cream : Rs. 300
Specialty Ice cream : Rs.500
Large pint Ice cream : Rs 700
Shakes and Drinks : Rs. 300 approx
Sundaes 3 scoops : Rs 420
3 Cup Cake Ice cream desserts : Rs. 550
Yes..it is EXPENSIVE..but I guess its a great place to head out to when the occasion demands it...
My personal favorite is the Belgian Chocolate....
The Hagen Dazs lounge is on KNK road in Nungambakkam....
Note : I DID NOT accept the free ice cream tub and the Gift Vouchers that were offered by the event managers for the review :)
