Welcome to the Big Cow Creamery – an Ice Cream shop with an Indian twist, that has been in business for 18 years. Big Cow Creamery is a fun place that is decorated with a hand-painted wall mural of cows and children eating ice cream. There are many flavors of ice cream in the shop. The owner Ketan Shah makes his own ice cream, waffles, and even ice cream cakes. He also offers tasty specialties like sundaes, shakes, floats and banana splits.
Wish to taste something exotic? Ask Ketan for his special: Indian Flavor Ice Cream Menu. Choices include: Malai Kulfi, Pistachio Kulfi, Falooda Ice Cream, Cashew Raisin, Chiku, Lychee, Kesar Pista, and Mango.
“When we were at India Fest in Gainesville last weekend, we were lucky enough to sample some kulfi flavors from Ketan, the owner of Big Cow Creamery. He makes all of this ice creams from scratch, and we are so gracious to have him located in Bradenton, FL.
Regular American style ice cream is usually pumped with air to make it fluffy, resulting in more air than ice cream. Kulfi on the other hand, is dense, and takes longer to melt than most frozen desserts.
Big Cow has many different unique flavors like: kesar (saffron) pistachio, mango, rose, lychee, chikoo fruit, falooda kulfi, and malai kulfi. The unique flavors are normally not on display and you will need to ask for them, they are always in stock.
Katan also makes the classic flavors that everyone loves and what most of Bradenton expects: chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, rocky road, bubble gum, cookie dough, etc. Even some that are sugar free. But, I come here for the exotic tastes of saffron and cardamom.” – Coty S.
“I’ve never actually been to the store, but I’ve had 3 flavors of the ice cream and met the owner. WOW! The ice cream is phenomenal! It’s smooth and creamy, the ingredients are evenly mixed throughout, and I love the Indian flavors like Falooda Kulfi (rosewater, basil seeds, tiny semolina pastas) and Pistachio. The owner is a really nice man who clearly takes a lot of pride in his craft. Can’t wait to visit this place and try more flavors! You can find this ice cream at various Indian cultural events in the Tampa Bay area.” – Brittany L.
“Good stuff!! I had the turtle cashew and loved it. I plan to go back and try some of the more exotic flavors. You can tell it’s truly homemade with quality ingredients. The shopping center it’s in is kind of dead but this place is worth a stop.” – Shey C.
