Great Kulfi at Mughal Cuisine, Fremont

Melanie Wong | Sep 20, 200503:03 AM     6

Yesterday I stopped at Thornton Pure Water and Ice Cream to take a look. Given the neighboring Persian, Afghan, and Pakistani food businesses, I thought I might find some interesting flavors here. Not so.

Disappointed, I poked my head into Mughal Cuisine in the same strip mall and asked if they had faluda. The man at the cash register shook his head and said he was out of the noodles, but I could have kulfi. He pointed to a square freezer next to him. The sign on the front says something like "kulfi ice cream $1.99" with a list of flavors. He said those were for small cups made commercially. Then he reached in and pulled out a small plastic tub and said that the homemade kulfi is $2.49. Of course, I had to have that.

It was incredibly rich in texture and flavor. I couldn't tell you what specific flavor it was, just kulfi-flavor with exotic spicing and the near cheese-like taste of boiled-down, highly reduced, evaporated and condensed milks. He had given me a plastic spoon and a fork to eat it. I used the tines of the fork to cleave away crystalline shards. I needed the spoon to not lose a drop of the thick, tongue-coating, melted kulfi.

Highly recommended.
