Old-timers will remember Golden Dairy, a store that attracted gourmets from all over the city for its superior blocks of paneer and its creamy gallons of milk. But now, after a revamp of significant proportions, Dairy Den emerges, with its hip colorful ice-cream parlor, and its slightly-less-hip snack joint. Change is not always for the good, is it?
Dairy Den sells pretty much all the basic specialties here, including sundaes, sodas, milkshakes and those desserts of unknown components, vaguely titled Something Fantasy. Or Something Delight. These usually consist of large scoops of ice-cream, topped off with syrups of many colors, and nuts of many kinds, namely cashew, cashew and cashew. Nothing to write home about, but unless you want to travel all the way to M G Road, this will do for your daily recommended ice-cream dosage.
The snack and juice parlor is better to hang out at with friends, if a little grimy and crammed. The chicken sandwiches here are good, and you might want to sneak a couple in for your movie, thus avoiding the overpriced fare at the theater. The masala popcorn and fresh fruit juices here are also very popular.
Dairy Den might not have the charm of its earlier version, Golden Dairy, but it still does well with the young people. Partly because there aren't any other ice-cream parlors this close to Sangeet, so if you have a long wait before your movie starts, you might as well nip in for a swirl of Softy.
