Inside Ahmedabad's love for cheese and the debate around viral Cheese Ice Gola: Yay or nay?!

A peek at Ahmedabad's not-so-secret love affair with cheese!

Ahmedabad has a not-so-secret love affair with cheese and butter. From the lively streets of Manek Chowk to even the fanciest cafes and restaurants, Amdavadis add a twist of cheese to street food favorites and even the traditional delicacies.

It's debatable whether it's almost an obsession, with cheese finding its way into every dish imaginable, from savory delights to sweet treats, or it's just an innovation of the taste preference of locals. Hate it or love it, cheese is here to stay! So, let's delve into the city's enduring love for this dairy delight.

Cheese, cheese, everywhere! 

At Manek Chowk, where the scent of spices mingles with the chatter of vendors, one can't help but succumb to the allure of cheesy indulgence. Enter the Manek Sandwich, a culinary masterpiece that's as stacked as the ingredients on its three slices of crustless white bread. With butter, pineapple jam, ice cream, canned pineapple, and a generous shower of Amul cheese, it's a sandwich that's more decadent than a Bollywood drama.

But the cheese parade doesn't end there. Manek Chowk transforms into a haven for cheese enthusiasts by night, offering a smorgasbord of cheesy delights like rabdi cheese pizza, cheese ghughra sandwich, and cheese sev puri. And let's not forget the ghotala dosa, where scrambled masaledar cheese gravy steals the spotlight, making it a dish that's as scandalous as it is satisfying.
