Chill Out at Shake Square
By Sukanya Sharma
Walking down the Bunglow Road of the Kamla Nagar market, one can easily miss the small “Shakes Square” amid the other equally bright signs. Once inside, you’ll never forget it. I think this is characteristic to the Keventer’s, the main branch of which at Connaught Place also has the tendency to ne missed but once had a sip of the shakes and a scoop of ice-cream, you are bound to never ever forget.
This bright, small yet cosy shop with the counter, ordering platter on the ground leveland the sitting area over head exudes the flavours of its items on sale in the very way the place is adorned. The choosing platter of ice-creams can actually make you go crazy about what to eat and what to spare for the next time. Trust me there is always a next time with this place.
Have you ever had this nostalgic feel of those very few first years when we used to get milk in big, no huge bottles? Or do you remember Tom, the cat in Tom and Jerry cartoon series ogling at this large bottle of milk? Well, you get to live this when the milk shakes come in similar containers.
The smooth, creamy thick and greatly ice sprinkled crystal, clear glass bottle does real wonders, during the sultry summer days. The blasting effect of the sweet, frothy shake and the crunch of the ice in it can be explained in only one word- ECSTASY or two- PURE ECSTASY! May you be dead sleepy after an 8:40 am lecture or infact be dead tired after any lecture, this place with its amazing range of flavours from chocolate to butterscotch, kesar pista to elaichi; is enough to take you through the day.
Maybe because it is the weekly, if not daily pilgrimage at K.Nags for DU students and for their prompt service and great ambience, i rate this place a 4/5. I actually (guiltily though) feel like a child in a candy shop in this place.
