The moment it hits the base of the cup, the ice cream starts loosing its subtle edges; giving way to a goovy fluid that trickles, twists and turns elucidating a nature’s marvel ---- the marble stone. It is not only the name though; that the owners got right, marble stone is a success story altogether! Standing amidst the extravagantly posh food places, at M.M Alam road, marble stone has its own significance.
The exterior as well as the interior of the parlor reflects the cozy, tuck in coffee shops set in most of Europe back in late 80’s. Playing well with a craggy, stony look on the out side the decorators have followed quite the same pattern for the interior too. Brown is surely the dominant color inside, generating a dull gloom within. Setting such an ambience is the work of a genius since it inclines one more towards having some fresh and cool ice cream. Moreover the place can also be categorized by its not so big size, which can be taken down as a negative. More than half of its tiny ground floor is occupied by the ice cream bar and other associated accessories. The first floor is led to by a curved, petite staircase. The seating arrangement is best managed in the given scanty space.
However when it comes to taste, marble stone hits the bull’s eye with its wide range of proposed flavors. A customer can either choose one of the ice creams listed on the menu chart or can manipulate one of his own…bingo!
If ‘Black forest dream,’ (one of the composed ice creams) consisting of chocolate ice cream with cherry pie filling, brownie and fudge, falls short of triggering your taste buds, then u can make something of your own. The buyers can choose from the given flavors like caramel, dark chocolate, simple chocolate, cotton candy etc and then propose their own garnishing. The toppings they have to offer are phenomenal, starting with a brownie addition you could pour thick dark chocolate with Oreo cookies to your dissert. HATE CHOCOLATE?? No need to go somewhere else, they have fruits to excite you too. The quality of their ice creams is par excellence, they are thick and rich just as you would love to have. Moreover they could save you monotony by adding waffle cones or bowls to your ice creams. The waffle quality is something that needs improvement, even though fresh and hot they need a revised recipe. The price of a scoop is Rs. 120 with no further complications.
So that is Marble Stone for you, those who love ice creams need no invitation and those who do not fancy them much would be taken care of once they step into this parlor!
The Good: A diverse range of scrumptious ice-cream flavors that is bound to leave you craving for more.
The Bad: The small interior makes the Icecreamery crowded at times, which might annoy the customers, as they cannot enjoy their desert to the full extent.
The Bottom Line: If Ice-cream=Love and Marble Stones= Ice-cream
Then Love=Marble Stones
