Interview with a Local: Mohan Kumar of OddFellows Ice Cream
OddFellows Ice Cream Co. is a Brooklyn-based, family-owned and operated small business founded by husband-and-wife team Mohan and Holiday Kumar and Chef Sam Mason. They opened their flagship location in June 2013 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. And it’s often the favorite stop for attendees on our Williamsburg Bites Brooklyn Food Tour and Sunday Funday Williamsburg Tour, so we wanted to dig deeper to share their story.
Every scoop of their ice cream is made from scratch in the Williamsburg kitchen. According to the website, “We strive to create the highest quality and freshest ice cream available, pasteurizing our ice cream base in-house to concoct the most distinctive and scrumptious flavors ranging from inventive renditions of the classics to the delectably unconventional. Our milk, eggs, and cream are sourced from local farms and, whenever possible, we use all-natural ingredients.”
In Brooklyn, they offer 14 different flavors, and because they produce their super-premium ice cream in small batches, the flavors rotate regularly and often times throughout the day!
We spoke with one of the founders (and friend of Like A Local) Mohan Kumar. We even got the scoop (get it?!) on a secret popup opening later this month!
