Back 2 FSGR...

Finally we are back to FSGR (Fruit Shop on Greams Road). Its one of our favorite place in the city for the juiceholics. I was thinking of writing a post on FSGR, but someway missed out everytime. Finally Here goes ...

We were into Loyola college for the Cricket Net practice on Saturday for our cognizant CCA cup. Very tired of the session and plan to land up somewhere we can chill out ourselves and there is our FSGR in Greams Road.

Sharon took us to FSGR first time ( He likes to visit lot of places in the city - ranges from juice shops to adventure spots and he is the source for our weekend plans).
The inner view of the Fruit shop is completely in contrast to the outside world.
You feel like you are in a Coolest place of the city.
A delicious snapshot of the Cheery blended with grape and various fruits welcomes your saliva in prior to you.
Its not just a Fruit shop, but looks like an office of an Interior decoration agency.
The hanging lamps and the wall posters along with the xclnt arrangement of seatings makes you feel like you are in a hill station.






They have lovely garden where we can relax well with a Cool breeze and sometimes surprises with Funky Magics.

And a gr888 thing we notice in FSGR is, the juiceman is a kind hearted person.
When some stranger or Economically Challenged Person( Pls avoid calling people by the name begger) comes to shop, they offer a juice instead of like other shoppers who either shout at them or give mere 50 paise .

The juiceman became friend of us soon and Sharon tries different combinations.
Soemtimes end up with lovely combos, sometimes thrown to recycle bins. But our juicemen, shankar is very gentle. He wont get irritated and loves the mad thoughts.
Shankar told that they had opened their branch in Dubai.

Those days we frequently visit FSGR but later on reduced from fortnite to monthly basis.
And not much variety of juices to add up on earlier days. Mere they provide the seasoned fruit juices, but they have their own quality which made them unique.

Later they tried their hand at innovative juices, way of serving the customers, stylish glassmaterials, juicemachines and the attractive tiles.
They have ground floor on the beginning and renovated to increase to first floor, where all the commited couples land at first floor for the privacy.
We see many couples who just buy a juice and spend time for hours. We poor guys see them sadly :-) and finish our quenchies quicker and fly off.

Now a days, they came up with lots and lots of innovative and lovely juicips like
Twists in the Tale ( Kiwi fruit spcl), Cheery Cheer - its an elegant milkshake blended with restrained flavors of cherry. Blueberry Magic - jamun spcl, Canton Cooler ( alltime favorite)- Lychee fruits dipped n Honey,
Tang N Ginger punch - A light ginger with Grape blended with fruits, Ban D Banna - a subtle flavor of banana, Vaticna Orange , Peach Premium and a lot ...

This time there was a Guy and Gal sat opposite to us and seems like already an hour passed.
They never bother about the surroundings and chatted loudly. We heard few conversations that were very funny but cant make up anything from that.
Our guy heard better as he sat near to them.

And the conversation goes like this...
Gal: So and so my guy is gong to buy a car and he is planning to took his new girl friend to ECR.

Guy: I have less time to spend with my girl. and how about your would be?

Gal: My would be dont have time to reach me da. Guy i am dating now is dumbo man, he is not coming out frequently.And whats our plan this weekend, shall we go to Bikes and Barrels ( Its a Pub).

Guy: Lets decide later yaar, might the girl in my apartment have some other plan.

OMG...whats going on and who is lover to whom and who is going to marry whom?

We were laughing at each other but confused of the surrounding and left the FSGR.

Phir Milenge shankar anna.
