Say the word, ‘Pabba’s’ to anyone in Mangalore, or someone who has had the opportunity to visit this port city, and one is most likely to be met with a smile or in the very least, warming thoughts of wistfulness. For very few, if at all any, in Kudla may have escaped to the alluring charm of the gadbad, tiramisu, parfait, bella candy and scores of other delicious ice cream creations concocted by S. Prabhakar Kamath, affectionately known as Pabba to family and friends, over half a century at his now iconic Mangalorean institution, Pabba’s and Ideal Ice Creams. On my visit to kudla nearly a couple of months ago, I had the opportunity to sit with him (after nearly 20 years), his son, Mukund, and grandson, Mohith, to taste their latest creation, the I. Thali, a tantalising ice cream take on the South Indian thali, at their newest parlour, Pabba’s Ideal Café, Bharath Mall, that seems to have taken Mangalore by storm going by the sheer numbers that queue outside this large restaurant. However little did I know then, that this would be my last meeting with him! This episode was conceived as a review of the I Thali, but is now in some ways a tribute to the man who put Mangalore and his legendary ice creams on the culinary map.

Take care, stay safe and strong. Happy eating!

  3. I hope the Icecream are made of milk and not using palm oil…. Cause very little milk solids and large amount of oil is what you get in India right now. So hopefully like you covered other kitchens, this kitchen secret should also be known to all.
