The top 6 falooda in Toronto

Falooda might not be as popular in Toronto as say, soft serve, but on the Indian subcontinent, it's one prized frozen treat. It originated in Persia (modern day Iran) and it's sometimes like a milkshake, while at other spots, it's more of an ice cream parfait. It features sweet rose flavouring and ofter fun add-ins, such as noodles, basil seeds, nuts and/or tapioca pearls.

Here's were to find falooda in Toronto.

Royal Paan
This Indian sweet shop offers falooda at its eight GTA locations. Made with rose syrup and kulfi and topped with almonds and pistachios, this is an indulgent treat, but you can amp it up even more by ordering the Royal Falooda, which also includes basil seeds, noodles and nuts.

Bombay Chowpatty
This fast food restaurant in Little India considers this rose and ice cream-based dessert its house specialty. The spice-infused parfait comes decorated with sabja seeds (sweet basil seeds), rice noodles and dried fruits.

Lahore Tikka House
The falooda ice cream shake from this Little India hot spot consists of ice cream blended with rose syrup. It has vermicelli and basil pearls mixed in.

Anjappar Chettinad
Falooda is a menu favourite at this chain of Indian restaurants. Here the dessert features rose-scented milk with basil seeds topped off with a scoop of ice cream.

Tasty Paan and More
This convenience store on Finch mixes slushies, falooda, and ice cream drinks behind the counter. The falooda features a blend of milk and rose ice cream and can be pimped out by request with noodles and other toppings.

Iqbal Kebab & Sweets Centre
The ice cream parlour out front is currently closed, but inside you'll still find this refreshing and creamy beverage topped with basil seed and noodles.
