Where We Are Going Today: Frozen Bucket

Frozen Bucket is the perfect place for ice cream lovers, as it offers an experience unlike any other you are likely to find in Jeddah.

Not only does it offer some incredible and unusual flavors, but its ice cream is made the way it was in the old days, hand-churned in a bucket. Each day’s batch is made fresh that morning and only served that day, never stored overnight.

As a result, the available flavors vary from day to day. They include deliciously unusual options such as saffron and apricot, lychee, and watermelon. If you fancy even more variety, try the banana chocolate, Shahi Kulfi or choco pie, among many others.

As the perfect finishing touch, the ice cream is served in pottery dishes that help to keep it cold for longer so that it does not melt too quickly. This small detail is a fresh and innovative idea that adds to the highly enjoyable and unique experience of sampling Frozen Bucket’s icy delights.
