Royal Cashews (Crescat).

If cashew cannot unite our Sinha le Sri Lankan le, nothing can.

Royal Cashew is here to cater to all your nutty needs.  Their exciting flavours would probably make the cadjugama akkis in their brightly colored reddai hettes unhappy. They have outlets all over and I decided to hop into their Crescat outlet.

 

The Flavours

The best thing about Royal Cashew is their range of flavours. Unlike the usual roasted and devilled cashew nuts that you would find at the supermarkets, Royal Cashew offers a wide range of flavours to choose from.

Their flavours include Hot Pepper, Masala, Shrimp and Red Onion, Sour Cream and Onion, Spanish Tomato, Salted, BBQ, Burnt, Natural Dehydrated, Cheese Onion, Sugar Coated, Hot and Spicy, and Chilli Seasoning. 

100 grams of any flavour costs Rs 370 and this, in comparison to other packets of 100g cashews at supermarkets, is less pricy.

 

Shrimp and Red Onion

These didn't have a distinct shrimp taste which was pretty disappointing. I expected them to taste like prawn crackers but in cashew nut form. In contrast, it did have a strong red onion flavour coming through. 

On the whole, it was pretty good. The type that would have you going back for more.

Sugar Coated Cashew Nuts

Sugar coated cashews are hard to find and that may be for a real good reason – they are not that tasty.

The crunch is lost. The milky cashew taste is lost. What you are then left with is just icing sugar. And diabetes.

 

Chilli Seasoning

The chilli seasoning really has a lot of chilli going on. If you are like me and love anything chilli, this flavor might be appealing to you. Unlike the mainstream devilled cashew nut taste, the chilli seasoning comes off stronger and  just hits your throat. It's a bit strong for casual nibbling though.

 

The Kiosk

The kiosk is easy find and they accept cards (No American Express though. Boo you, Amex). 

It's in the food court, at the basement level of crescat, adjoining The Brick Lane Cookie Company, and right opposite Roots. Very easy to find.

The service is pretty basic given that it's a kiosk. If you are the princess of Kavum Island, I am sorry, you won't receive royal treatment at an average kiosk although it is run by Royal Cashews. You just have to tell the nice man behind the counter what nuts you want and how much (weight). The minimum weight is 100g. 

 

Conclusion

Royal Cashews has created a niche for itself. They have really experimented with the cashews that have secured a top spot in our Lankan hearts. I tried a few from their other flavors such as Cheese Onion and Spanish Tomato, and while they tasted different, they didn't taste bad.

If you're sick and tired of the basic nuts (but, um, that's unacceptable), you might like the tastelifts Royal Cashews has given to good old cadju.

Happy nuts, y'all!
