As creative as one can get

Innovative: Vikram
Ever imagined that Chhota Bheem, Doraemon and ‘Hello Kitty’ –– all popular cartoon characters, would be available in the form of an ice cream.

These are the names of some of the different flavours of ice cream on the menu at ‘Redberrys’, the Italian handmade ice cream parlour in Basavanagudi.

Owner of Redberrys, Vikram is a young restaurateur, who never hesitates to get imaginative and goes the whole hog to get creative with the names of the items on the menu. Vikram says, “I completed my mechanical engineering and worked for a while. But I always wanted to something on my own. This thought got a push during a holiday in Thailand. I tasted handmade Italian ice cream there and brought home the idea of starting a similar place here”. The ice cream in ‘Redberrys’ is made every day.

He says, “We take about eight minutes to make eight kilos of ice cream, especially made from a machine bought from Italy. Our ice creams are 93 per cent fat-free as they are made without milk and sugar. Most of our flavours are fruit-based and our ice creams are more like sorbet.”

The reason behind preparing the ice cream every day is because they have a short shelf-life as they do not contain any preservatives. “Our ice cream doesn’t last for more than five days. So, we prepare less quantity and most of our stock gets over the same day,” he adds. Every day, there are about 10 different flavours and these flavours are also changed every day. Vikram explains, “We have about 45 flavours in all. We get a lot of chance to experiment. Sometimes, our customers give suggestions on what they would like to eat and we come up with that flavour.”

While every ice cream parlour sells coffee-flavoured ice cream as mocha, there is a surprise for customers here. The coffee-flavoured ice-cream is ‘Brahmins Coffee’. Vikram says, “You get the best coffee in the City in ‘Brahmin’s Coffee Bar’. I was so impressed with the taste that I decided to name the ice cream after their coffee.” Other interesting flavours on the menu are ‘Sultan Rose’, ‘French Vanilla’ and ‘Horlicks’ among others.

Each scoop of ice cream costs Rs 25. Vikram explains, “I am here for the passion of making ice cream and not to make money. I make and sell ice cream only so there are no middlemen involved. This rate works out well for us.”

The outlet is located at No. 40, next to Vodafone Store, Surveyor Street, DVG Road, Basavanagudi.
