San Francisco-based Swensen’s ice cream is one of many American fast food joints that has proliferated across Asia’s expanding markets in the past decade, gaining popularity among a young generation in the East even as these outlets retreat from their home territory in the West. American ice cream parlors and diner-style cuisine have established a foothold across the Pacific, carrying with them tastes and images evocative of a bygone era. Fragments of nostalgia for the California Dream seep to the surface in Bangalore, India, a city filled with echoes of the long vanished past.
