Keventer's Milk Bar





Keventer's (in Connaught Place, right in the center of Delhi), is actually a very small shop. If you pass it, you would not notice the shop, but you might (most probably will) notice the crowd outside the shop. It is located where the radial road for PanchKuan Marg begins, almost on the inner circle. Why is it so famous ?
Well, it has been there for a long time. I was reading an article in the Hindu Online by Ruskin Bond which talks about his life in Delhi in 1942 (that's right, 65 years back) and he mentioned going to Keventer's. That was a long long time back.
You get a few varieties of milk shakes over there (along with assorted ice cream shakes and a few short eats). It is the milk shakes that are very famous, and for which people keep on coming back.
Available in Vanilla, Pineapple, Strawberry, Mango, Chocolate, Butter Scotch, Coffee and may a few others that I can't remember. These are sold in a bottle (to be returned), that are actually the bottles in which milk used to be available for household consumption (although I have not seen these bottles being used for a long time now).
For me, the charm is such that whenever I go to CP for some work, I try to make my way to Keventer's to have some nice flavoured cold milk shake.
