Sreeraj lassi bar in Meena bazaar whips thick, luscious lassi, perfect to beat the summer heat. The lassi comes in sweet, salt, pudina and spicy flavours and is served in a thick, tall glass- just like old times!
The temperatures are soaring and there’s no better way to beat the heat than a tall glass of thick, creamy lassi. Whipped with fruits, or served the traditional way with sugar or salt, lassi is a summer favourite in many homes.
And Dubai has a petite place which has preserved this tradition, just like good old times. Seated in the buzzing by-lanes of Meena Bazaar, Sreeraj Lassi Bar is a favourite among shopaholics. After all, who wouldn’t like a tall glass of lusciously thick lassi and a creamy kulfi at Sreeraj!
The owner of the shop, late Abdu Rahiman originally hailed from Kerala. He started off his career selling kulfi on the streets and after a few years of struggle, he set up his first shop at Lavelle road in Bangalore. This humble shop has now made its way into Dubai, letting residents replenish themselves with tantalizing the flavours they offer.
On The Menu
Sreeraj Lassi’s menu is broadly divided into sweet, salt, pudina and spicy lassi. The lassis are served in thick, tall glasses or in a matka. Sweet lassis come flavoured with a variety of fruits, including mango, strawberry, grapes, dates, dry fruits or anjeer while the spicy version is drizzled with salt and pepper.
Mango lassi is a hot favourite at this place during summer. The sweetness of the mango and the sourness of the curd strike the perfect balance, leaving a lip-smacking after taste. And, it’s so thick you’ll have to scoop it out with a spoon! Their pineapple and grape lassis are divine too and are available through the year. The Kesar lassi is a favourite Ramadan drink. Topped with heaps of dry fruits, the thick drink is a filling meal in itself.
The shop also whips delicious milkshakes, faloodas, fresh fruit juices, and lassi ice cream. If you’re in a mood to experiment something new, Sreeraj Lassi definitely won’t disappoint.
