Gadbad is a slang in Kannada meaning there is something wrong or something amiss. History of Gadbad goes like this, a customer visited Diana restaurant in Udupi and ordered for an ice cream, he was not happy with the scoop served and vented his anger out to the waiter. The waiter in turn reported this to the cook and the cook created an ice cream sundae served in a glass and called it Gadbad ice cream. He used multiple flavors of ice cream, fruits, nuts, jelly, and sauce. The customer was happy with this complete meal and Gadbad ice cream was permanently listed in the menu card of the restaurant. A very important ingredient to finish the Gadbad Ice Cream is an appetite!
