The summers are upon us and at this point, there seems to be no respite from the scorching sun. What you can do to cool down on a hot, sultry day, is head over to the thick shake and quick bites place called Scossa in Hazratganj. The place has been around for almost a year now and you must visit them for some never before heard of shakes, pastas, burgers and more. What’s more is that the shakes here are completely without ice cream, no ice, just the goodness of milk.

Right off the bat, the first thing you’ll notice here is that it’s small, but don’t let that fool you, everything else here, is big on taste and flavour. The place has a nice, soothing vibe to it and the artificial gardens on the walls and the ceiling certainly add a nice touch. Paired with some nice lighting, the place looks stunning and is reason enough to stay for a while.

The main reason you’re gonna be here is because of the shakes and there are so many unique ones, your head will spin just looking at the options. There’s a Paan Shake, a Motichoor Shake, Exotic fruit shakes, the classic chocolate shakes- each with a distinct flavour to satiate anyone’s taste buds.

But wait, there’s more than just thick shakes here. They have a variety of pastas and burgers that amazingly complement the shakes, making for an all the more satisfying experience.

Some of the best shakes you can try here are the Motichoor shakes and the Paan Laziz, both of which are one of a kind. The Motichoor shake had a tinge of mint in it and was sweet to the core, owing to the crushed savoury sweet that was beautifully infused within it. As for the Paan Laziz shake, it was one of the most refreshing ones you can try and the zesty taste cools you from the inside out. Since it has a lasting and a rather strong taste, you’ll want to pair this one with the white sauce pasta, which is muted and subtle. It brings the essence of paan in a more refined and classy fashion.

The fruity shakes on the other hand are more subtle and in line with what you’d expect. The ones that especially left an impact were the mango and the strawberry shake. The mango shake tasted as you’d expect with some thick froth and cooling vibes, while the strawberry shake was one for the sweet lovers. Combining the goodness of a cool drink and a sweet, the strawberry shake hit all the right notes on our taste buds.

Surely if you do visit, you’ll want something to go with the shakes and your best option would be either the pastas- they have both red and white sauce or the fries, which are dipped in salsa sauce and mayo, causing an explosion of flavors in one’s mouth. The salsaness of the fries is just enough to make you want to crave a sip of the shake and once you do that, you’ll see how well they go hand in hand.

The red sauce pasta had some strong and aromatic flavours to it, which gave it a unique taste of its own. At the same time, however, the pasta goes well with any of the shakes and it makes for a rather wholesome experience.

They say that “the world is full without chocolate and incomplete without creamy chocolate shakes.” and if you’re one who doesn’t like to experiment much, then stick with these are the shakes for you. Here, you can choose from a Choco Chip shake, a Brownie Blast and finally, a Nutella shake. The brownie blast was our absolute favourite of the entire lot as it had bits and pieces of the chunky brownie that added to the thick texture of the shake as a whole.

Well, the varieties at Scossa are fit to satisfy anyone’s wildest imagination and they surely managed to hook our taste buds. What are you waiting for? Grab a few friends and head over to the one stop for shakes and lots more.
