It’s that time of the month again. It’s time for my February food favourites, where I list down the restaurants I ate at, and the dishes I tried that were memorable enough to make the cut this month. Now February may have only 28 days, but that did not deter me from eating my way across the city to bring you my February food favourites.
1. If you want to bring the boys to the yard – Keventers, Carter Road
The notifications on my phone went berserk after I Instagramed my Keventers milkshake bottle on their launch night at Carter Road. I was returning back from my evening walk and decided to undo the past hour’s hard work with a thick shake from here. With barely any buzz or fanfare, Delhi’s favourite family milkshake store launched their first Mumbai outlet. The menu spans fruit-based shakes, indulgent thick shakes and a few warm beverages. The shakes are all served in their trademark milk bottles, which you can take home, which excited me as much as the milkshake did. The Mumbai-inspired Keventers bottles have the Gateway of India, Bandra Worli Sea Sink, the Taj Mahal hotel and other landmark structures embossed on the exterior.
The shakes are delicious, refreshing and homely. I tried the Strawberry Fields – a beautiful strawberry and chocolate fusion. Not saccharine sweetness or extra thickness; very unlike the sort of shakes one finds at joints nowadays. Was the shake good? Yes! Was it worth all the excitement that people around me seemed to be exuding? Not sure. But then again I am not a Delhi kid, and I truly understand the value of childhood nostalgia. Keventers is a classic, and for all the right reasons.
