Blissful dining at Barbeque Nation

Nolen Gurer Ice Cream | Deliciously creamy and breathtakingly aromatic

Nolen gurer ice cream is not like the usual ice cream. It’s a fusion masterpiece, blending traditional sweet notes with creamy textures. Apart from its heavenly taste, the gooey yet slippery, finger-licking consistency of the nolen gur elevates the experience of consuming it to a sinful level.
