7- Yummy 36
In Lahore, we have been used to of eating plain ice-cream not a proper dessert of it.Yummy 36 with its distinctive flavour offers you various toppings, such as: fruits, caramel crunch, cream and waffers- all in PKR 170 for a single scoop.
Normally sweets shops in Pakistan do not offer a place to sit and peacefully enjoy the delicacies. Chashni is first one to do that with its outlet in DHA Lahore.People usually go their to enjoy Falooda in intense summers while sitting in a beautiful environment decorated with our cultural ornaments. Every once in a while it is good to places that offer local desserts instead of leaping for something of another culture.
