    "So the year is 1998, I go to Delhi for participating in a quiz and we end up at Nirula's. I look at the menu, and a large soft drink catches my eye. Have a medium, my dad says. Ok, I say a bit disappointed. That disappointment turns to awe when I see how big the medium coke really is." — u/hevill

    "Then a question at the back of my head - if the medium is so ginormous, how huge is the large? And as if on cue, a person strides by my table carrying a huge fucking jug full of coke. Oh, I think, that's quite large." — u/hevill

    "Those Coke jugs were the gold standard for our post-school group hangouts at Nirula's. Brings back memories hard! :)" — u/cramacardinal

    In school, every week on our way for community service we'd pass by Nirula's and the entire bus load of us would scream NIRULAAAAS.

    "They had those red balloons for us kids and let us taste the ice creams before getting one. This sketch brought back some good memories." — u/Mansehej

    "There was a Nirula's in Paschim Vihar my father used to take us all to. Loved the burger with the hash brown, the thin crust pizza, the hot chocolate fudge. But the best was their chhole bhature. This has brought back some pleasant memories." — u/nihilismislove

    If you've missed the Nirulas Hot Chocolate Fudge Sundae or the Ice Cream cake, you may seriously have had a deprived childhood. Go try now.

    What's your fav ice-cream memory from childhood? Mine was the Nirulas scoop you'd get by showing your report card (CP parlour, under potpourri) - it was a Banana Strawberry Ripple that they later discontinued.

    Do you have any such memories of a restaurant or fast-food joint in the city that you grew up in? Sound off in the comments!
