Do you love food? Good food? I mean really tasty good food? Do you get a sense of tranquility when you have good food?
There is a guy whom I know for a long time. Ever since my childhood. I met him yesterday evening near Malleswaram 14th Cross. He looked so calm and in harmony with nature!
There was a small fight going on in front of him for a parking space. But this guy just stood still, which he doesn’t, usually.
I asked him, “Hey, how come you are so peaceful today?”
“I just treated myself a DBC at Polar Bear. How can I not be peaceful?”
“I have heard about BBC, KBC, even OBC. But sorry, what’s this DBC?” I asked.
“Death By Chocolate!”
“The name looks scary…I said.
“Oh no! DBC is non-violent. I will tell you how. From the time you place your order, the calming exercise begins, gradually. When the guy places the cute bowl with dark chocolate cake, vanilla ice cream, chocolate fudge and whipped cream with honey topping in front of you, you don’t dig in immediately. You pause for a moment, thank each layer of DBC for the peace it is bringing within you!
On top of the bowl, you see honey poured on the dark chocolate cake. It is sprinkled with almonds and underneath all of these a scoop of vanilla ice cream is sitting quietly, just like goddess earth. You need to dig in carefully, to get a bit of everything on your spoon. The moment the first spoon goes into your mouth – TRANQUILITY!

The hot chocolate syrup makes it easy to scoop the ice cream out of the tub. Some ice creams stay frozen long after serving. However, Death by Chocolate Ice Cream by Polar Bear is deliciously rich, chocolaty and tasty. The quantity is just right. I love the richness of the chocolate as well as the chocolate cake, and almonds.
I can thoroughly enjoy a DBC only if I have skipped a meal. But today, I didn’t skip…and still I loved my DBC at Polar Bear. The moment you are done, you will not find any fault with the world!” he said.
After he ended, I thought, this guy must have had hundreds of DBCs. But he told today was just his 5th DBC!
“I cannot forget one of my colleagues in my previous ad agency as she was the one who made me drool over DBC. She would narrate about it so nicely. But she had cautioned me that it takes two to finish a rich DBC!
But it was long after I lost touch with her that I decided to have one at Polar Bear – Chandra Layout. That afternoon, I experienced PEACE for the first time! The next one I had at Malleswaram 14th Cross. My third and fourth DBCs were at Sadashivanagar parlor. The fifth time I am experiencing PEACE in this world is here again, this evening! Every time I have a DBC, I thank Anu!”
Hearing him, you could sense the passion he has for tasty food!
Thanks to him, he made me write this post this morning. He is the FOODIE in me!
Would love to hear your DBC stories! Do write about them in the comments please!
