the zing thing

May 25, 2011

beenceno, not the band, but the drink! While it’s not available anywhere except in our childhood memories, here’s a restaurant in Matunga that hasn’t updated its board in years. Perhaps this should have been a tip off about the quality. There wasn’t much attention to details. We had really unhappy utthapams. But a Gold Spot would really have hit the sweet spot … Sigh. I remember drinking it more because there were Jungle Book characters under the bottle cap but every memory of it is pleasant. As they said, “The taste goes to your smile.”

    The toughest characters to score (from the the ones on the rubber stoppers under the bottle caps) were a Frog and King Louie. After consuming more than my fair share of Gold Spots, when i finally did score them all, I remember I won an invite to a Jungle Book party at the Taj President poolside where we were showered with more Jungle Book memorabilia. I still might find it lying around somewhere if I look hard enough ­čÖé
    Good times…
