The Juice Shop at Sterling Junction


Located in a corner of a large fuel station, I’m told this juice shop is a better known landmark than Sterling Junction itself. There’s a fair crowd there at all times, and I believe what’s served up has something to do with it. So the next time you’re in Nungambakkam, and parched of throat, you know just where to go.

    Was there just yesterday !
    The shop lives up to its reputation. Tasty and inexpensive.

    Who cares about joints like these anyway.They may be inexpensive and good but they add nothing to a modern and growing standards of the international image of Chennai for the 21st century to the world. That place has been around for years.When u blog lets see some new,trendy and creative designed hotspots to hit in big ole Chennai city and not some road side inorganised set up.

    There has to be something for every budget in this city, and im glad that star luck plays its part.

    As they say, street food is the best food!

    So adding to a modern and growing standards of the international image of Chennai for the 21st century to the world. is more important than providing a good product at a good price, is it?

    Fine… cover the place with trendy, expensive rubbish merchants, fashionable malls and so on; evict everybody who earns less than Rs20,000. Welcome to Dead City.

    For those who prefer real life: another great place is the juice shop on the corner of Ranga Road and CP Ramaswamy Road. I like the way they give you all the juice they made for you, topping up your glass :).

    Like to see Chennai become modern,well organised,and fast developing,disciplined,and model 21st century city of India.These places are fine.No problemo.But there needs soo much more to be done to make this City the place to be for the century ahead and to make it a model city for India and Asia.Every aspect of industry and commerce especially retail must get organised and should develop and grow in a disciplined and creative manner for all sectors.

    I wonder if you think that your dream cities, that you consider that Chennai should be emulating, are empty of small businesses and shops? Of course they are not. Much of a city’s prosperity is tied up in the more successful of those businesses, both here and abroad, and even the smaller ones stand between a home foe many a Chennai family and being on the street.

    What you call ‘organised retail’ (if I understand you correctly) has its advantages, but it has utterly stripped the character from many of the towns and cities of my home country. It is not just a question of character, lest you think I am stuck in some quaintness thing: Try buying your basic food supplies when all the shops in the high street now sell clothes, and the supermarket is a car drive away.

    I was talking to a Chennai businessman the other day: his company manufactures specialist industrial valves, micron-accurate engineering, and exports them over the world. This is the kind of success story that you will probably find many times if you look at Chennai’s ‘disorganised’ industry.

    Sure, there’s room for the BPO and the software houses and the computer stuff, and even the shopping malls: may they flourish too and bring riches to Chennai — but don’t be so quick to be dismissive of everything that is a tad more traditional

    Oh, and if you really want to make Chennai more modern and more attractive to foreigners, I suggest you forget the economics for a while, and concentrate on keeping litter off the streets, getting people to use toilets, imposing some kind of rule on the roads, especially where commercial drivers are concerned…

    There are more important things than supermarkets which, I’m afraid you’ll find, are largely an empty dream.
