Every area has a legendary shop for either food, clothes or something attached to it for a longer period of time. This C. KUNHIRAMAN DEPARTMENTAL STORE which is few decades old now has been one for Royapuram. Just before the bridge from Mint, this old place with blue doors under the tree mostly filled with people holding either MANGO ICE CREAM CUP or MANGO SHAKE can be spotted. Yes MANGO ‘s are their specialties. I doubt how they get that seasonal summer fruit all through out the year.
But the Mango pulp and of course some added essence adds the proper flavor to both ice cream and juice with the former scoring more on taste. Both of them costs 30 ₹ each which is little high but people come here doesn’t have any hesitations. They also have GRAPE juice with a lot of grape fruits, lime which creates proper fizz. MUTTON SAMOSA was below average. So apart from serving as a departmental store they created a trademark for their MANGO refreshments. And those small refreshing things are very much people needed in this mostly humid weather.
