Restaurant Review:

La Mer

In the 1920s, Danish Dairy entrepreneur, Edward Keventer, established dairy manufacturing units in India (which gradually spread across Delhi, Aligarh, Calcutta and Darjeeling) and this was how the Keventers story started. From dairy products to rich ice creams in the 1960s, Keventers finally introduced milkshakes, fondly called Keventers shakes, in usual flavors, traditional Indian,  contemporary and unique flavors! We’ve had our share of Keventers shakes during trips to Delhi and when we were invited to review the iconic brand as it makes its debut in Dubai, we knew this was something we could not pass up! Our session was held at Keventers in Dubai’s latest hotspot, La Mer, and we were blown away by the interiors and exteriors of the milkshake bar. The charm of La Mer and the grace of Keventers, coupled with a quirky décor and colorful versions of the famous Keventers bottles made this a tasting that was both fun and nostalgic.

Here are the Keventers shakes we tried:

  • Pina Colada
  • Tutti Frutti
  • Salted Caramel
  • Nutella Marshmallows
  • Dulce De Leche Brownie
  • Kesar Badam

A Pina Colada milkshake? Does that sound cool or what (definitely excited us!) and we have to say that this one along with the flavorsome tutti frutti make for the perfect drinks for UAE’s unrelenting summers! The Salted caramel and Kesar badam were delicious as well. The chocolate shakes made the bottom of our list, not because they weren’t tasty, but because they didn’t hold a candle to the other flavors. What we really like about Keventers shakes is that they’re not overtly thick or heavy yet they pack a huge punch!

We are delighted that there are so many Keventers branches that already have opened their doors and others in the process of opening their doors soon around the country! Forget milkshakes, it’s time you had a Keventers shake!
