While Kishmish proudly introduces a remarkable journey of flavors, their dedicated ice cream artisan hailing from the bustling streets of Kabul brings forth an unparalleled concept of in-house crafted ice cream from Afghanistan to the heart of Mirdif. Every step of the process, from the milk preparation to the mesmerizing hand-churning and delightful serving, ensures an exceptional ice cream experience like no other.
Kishmish’s extraordinary creations are inspired by Iman’s deep connection to her Afghan culture, which is reflected in the brand’s rich flavors and heart-warming Afghan traditions. The brand is an ode to the power of nourishing cuisine, a philosophy that is at the core of Kishmish’s unique creations.
While COVID-19 posed dire challenges for many brands, Kishmish has emerged stronger, with a string of openings in the offing with Chef and Founder Iman taking over the reins of the restaurant business as a solopreneur. Iman desires to inspire fellow females in F&B who may not necessarily be professionally trained chefs and yet are able to fulfil their dream of running a successful restaurant.
