Beat the heat at Keventers – Connaught Place

The temperatures in Delhi are soaring and the weather this afternoon was pretty bad but we still decided to do a bit of exploring. At the end of the day, we were exhausted! We dragged ourselves around Connaught Place, thinking of places to just sit and lap up the air conditioning but we found something much better – Keventers’ Milkshakes!

Keventers has been around for decades and decades. It’s one of those places that hasn’t changed much over the years, maybe other than the prices! The place is so popular that you’ll find a huge crowd outside the shop even though there are no signboards. Many old timers say that the milkshakes are not as good as they used to be and now they have more ice and less milk. I don’t know about all that and to me (not very fond of milkshakes), they were delicious! I could taste the creaminess of the milk and it wasn’t overdone with sugar. They were served in huge 400ml glass bottles which really added to the charm of the whole place.  Keventers also has some snack items like patties and stuffed kulchas but I was too full to eat anything! All in all, it was the perfect refresher for a hot day.

Also, while paying the cashier, notice how fast his hands move! They never fail to amaze me 🙂

Crowd waiting for their milkshakes.

The looooooong line.

    Hey I am in India for few days. I was walking around Connaught Place and I saw a bunch of people standing in the line in front of a shop which didnt look anything great. I asked a person what was he standing for out of curiosity and he told me that he was standing in the line to get the best milkshake in the city. So I joined him in the line. Like u said first I was amazed at the cashiers supernatural ability to receive the cash and give back the change. I tried the pineapple milkshake which was amazing and it wasnt very expensive either. In fact I LOVED the milkshakes and made it a point to go there everytime I was in Connaught Place. Amazing post. Did justice to the place and their amazing milkshakes.
