Six iconic Indian spots named among ‘most legendary dessert places in the world’

It’s aptly said, there is no such thing as too many sweets! Desserts, with their delightful flavours and textures, have a magical way of warming our hearts and creating moments of pure comfort and bliss. Indian desserts, especially, have earned global acclaim for their unique offerings. The same was visible in Taste Atlas’ latest rankings of ‘most legendary dessert places in the world’.

The food guide noted, “In a world abundant with culinary destinations, there are those that stand as luminaries, offering not just delectable treats but a taste of history itself.” It shared that these “sanctuaries” craft the most recognisable cakes, pastries, and sweets with passion and exactitude.

The first spot is grabbed by Pastéis de Belém in Lisbon, Portugal, for its iconic pastry Pastel de Belém. “Since 1837, this delicacy has been made with a secret recipe, creating a creamy custard encased in flaky puff pastry.”

Istanbul’s Hafiz Mustafa is ranked second for its Baklava. “Baklava at Hafiz Mustafa is a symphony of thin, flaky layers of pastry, held together by rich, sweet syrup and filled with finely chopped nuts,” Taste Atlas noted.

It is followed by Cafe Central, which is a historic coffeehouse in the heart of Vienna known for its grand architecture and rich cultural legacy. “Apfelstrudel at Café Central is a sublime creation, comprising thin layers of flaky pastry, enveloping a spiced apple filling, served warm with a dusting of powdered sugar or a dollop of whipped cream.”

Six Indian places, namely Kayani Bakery in Pune, KC Das in Kolkata, Flurys in Kolkata, Karachi Bakery in Hyderabad, B&R Mullick in Kolkata, and K Rustom & Co in Mumbai, grabbed 18th, 25th, 26th, 29th, 37th, and 49th spots respectively.

Kayani Bakery, with its history dating back to the early 1950s, is especially known for its mawa cake. “Visitors often find themselves in long queues for a chance to enjoy this iconic cake, which has become synonymous with the bakery itself,” according to the guide.

Kolkata’s KC Das is widely credited for popularising rasgulla among people. “KC Das’s rasgullas have become legendary, drawing both locals and tourists to enjoy this iconic dessert.”

Flurys, which is a legendary confectionary located in Kolkata, is particularly famous for its rum balls. “These moist and flavorful balls are a much-celebrated treat, offering a blend of sweetness and a subtle kick from the rum,” Taste Atlas described.
