Visiting Hokey Pokey, Bangalore

I’m very fussy when it comes to ice creams. It shouldn’t be too sweet. It should be creamy but not heavy, and it should definitely live up to the standards of my favorite ice cream from my favorite childhood haunt, the best ice cream parlour down from the street where I grew up.

So when I got an invite from Hokey Pokey’s new ice cream parlor, I jumped at the opportunity not only because I already was a big fan (having many red dabbas at home to prove my point) but also because I wanted to know if I will rediscover my favorite ice cream.

Walking into the parlor on its opening day was fun. The red façade was inviting and being located in the food hub of Bangalore, in Koramangala, it was very inviting.





Hokey Pokey, leaders of finest quality vegetarian ice-creams are the innovators in introducing the concept of a live kitchen in India: “Mixing ice-creams on a frozen stone slab which gave customers the freedom to create their own flavour.” And their new concept is quite tempting.



As I walked in, I am impressed with the wall decor. And then soon I joined the excitement of the crowds and mentally started selecting which flavor I wanted. The staff were working swiftly, there were ice cream scoops flying in the air, the wafers were being made efficiently and the ice cream mixture was being prepared in the cold stone slab, set at just -22 degrees to keep the ice cream from melting.



As I watched, the different ice creams were made with different chocolates; Oreos, Kitkat, bounty, perk, chocolate chips, customers were served with a variety of ice cream, including New York cheesecake ice cream, chocolate and cookie ice cream and fruity ice creams.



I decided to order my favorite, Mint Cookie Monster, which is Mint ice cream with Choco chips and Cookies! Yum…! It totally lived up to my expectations and I savoured every bite.


Making of my order!

Voila.. Served with style!

Being the first outlet to be opened in Bangalore, Hokey Pokey will live up to the expectations; it had a quirky and yet comfortable ambiance, the friendliness of the staff was contagious and most importantly, the flavors were bang on and sure to tingle any ice cream lover’s taste buds.

And yes, I would definitely love to go there again and again. Hokey Pokey at its best! :)

Location - Hokey Pokey, No 8, 1st cross, 5th A block, Kormangala, Bangalore.
