Open for decades and still tastes as good as the first day! A mountain of creamy ashta smothered in crunchy pistachios, YUM. Due to the financial crisis, they have started swapping out the pistachios for other chopped nuts depending on availability – but it still stands as one of the best.
Also known as Al Berdawni ice cream, Khalaf and Abou Sleiman is a spot known for offering premium ice cream made with all natural ingredients. It has been open since 1948 and we cannot recommend the ashta and pistachios enough! It’s the perfect treat to grab while you walk around in Berdawni.
This beloved dessert spot is iconic, and for good reason. With delicious sweets like knefeh, mafroukeh, and so much more, it’s no surprise they’ve also perfected their ice cream selection. A massive Ashta ice cream cone topped with pistachios is one of Al Hallab’s best flavors.
