Awaiting for a juicy delight while you roam the streets of Calicut? Make your stop at the legendary Kalanthan’s F.P.K. Fruit Centre at Mananchira opposite Calicut District Sports Council to sip in some refreshing Sharjah Shake or Butter Juice, the most popular drinks from this over 35-years-old juice shop. Open from 10 am to 9 pm on all days, evening would be the best time to visit here.
Kalanthan’s F.P.K. Fruit Centre is the shop where ‘Sharjah Shake’ was first introduced in Kerala. Kalanthan Koya, its founder, had set a bench mark for other juice shops to follow for the beverages prepared by him became so famous that even people from distant places would come here to taste his special juices. But, after his demise, this shop which has a revered status in the city is now run by his son and grandsons.
This small single-room shop is located 300 metres away from one of the most recognizable landmarks of the city- Manachira Square. While going towards S.M. Street, this place is just 50 metres away from the LIC Bus Stop.
‘Butter Juice’- a smooth, creamy delight from their fresh juice menu is a must-try. Prepared with pulp of Avocado mixed with frozen milk, this juice has a unique, irresistible taste that’s no doubt makes it the most popular item here.
‘SharjahShake’ that is so commonly available in Kerala nowis said to be have been first prepared at this shop. The story goes like this. When asked for a different juice by one of his customers, Kalanthan prepared this item by adding some bananas with frozen milk and topping it up with Horlicks powder.And as it was the time for the famous Sharjah Cricket Cup, Kalanthan, the pioneer of this drink, named it grandly as ‘Sharjah Shake’.
Many seasonal fruit varieties are also served here. Any time you go, you can get to choose from atleast five to eight varieties of fruit juices. Apple, mango, papaya are some definitely worth a try. Many of their customers who work abroad are said to take a parcel of the juices when they head back to their place of employment.
If you are travelling by car it’s better to stop in front of the shop and place an order. They will come and serve you in the car itself. This is a very customer-friendly service as it is quite impossible to find a parking area anywhere near the busy stretch of S.M. Street. They also welcome customer feedback and make changes according to it.
