The Calcutta Kitchen – A fine dine vegetarian restaurant!
Location & Intro:
The Calcutta Kitchen is located in the Bangur Area. It was earlier Yellow Chilli and now has been revamped. The restaurant is a pure vegetarian fine dine in. The ambiance of the place is great and the view is appealing. I was invited by Karishma, a dear friend of mine, to try out the food here at The Calcutta Kitchen.
Upon entering the property, my eyes were mesmerised with the view and the ambiance. Nonetheless, we took our seats after capturing images, laughter and chit chatting.
My favorites here:
We tried quite many beverages and food items here. I will be listing some of my favorites here from The Calcutta Kitchen.
• Sunset Island – The Sunset Island is quite a refreshing drink. It is a must have drink during summers and is a favorite for me from here. It was presented excellently in mason jars.
• Peru Pyala – The peru pyala was good too. However, if you have to make a choice between sunset island and peru pyala, go for the sunset island. The peru pyala was concoction of guava juice, chilli and mint leaves!
• Golden American Corn Pepper Salt – The usual signature nibble item. It was good to taste.
• Potato and Spinach Gnocchi Tomato Parmesan – This would be my favorite starter from the a la carte. It was presented with two garlic breads on the side. I really loved the taste and the blends of flavors.
• Shaam Savera – It is one of the signature dishes here. It was curated by WonderChef Sanjeev kapoor and is still part of the a la carte. It is a must try out here. The shaam savera comprises of spinach balls stuffed with cottage cheese in sweet tangy gravy. The dish is quite balanced and one surely does enjoy it.
• Lalla Mussa Dal – The dal was excellent. We were informed that it was cooked slow over tandoor heat for about 30-36 hours. I really enjoyed it.
• Veg Dum Biriyani – I really was enjoying the biriyani as not many vegetarian restaurants make a good biriyani in the city of joy. It was quite spicy and i somehow was enjoying the spice. Though, i don’t like spicy food that much really.
Also, they have started offering oriental and continental cuisine but my preference would be indian food here.
• Black Current Kulfi – The Black Current Kulfi was really nice. I really was enjoying the flavors. It was quite balanced and not overly sweet.
• Choco lava Cake – It was difficult to resist the oozing out chocolate from the lava cake. It was presented excellently with ice cream on the side. I enjoyed it.
• Karishma Sharma, Blogger (asoulfoodstory) for inviting me over.
Price for two: 500-1000 approximate (Prices are subject to change due to macroeconomic factors such as inflation, etc.)
I feel that they should improvise on their oriental cuisine more.
• Large seating capacity. (a 110 seater restaurant)
• Pure Vegetarian Food.
• Good food quality.
• Good hospitality.
• Value for money food.
It is probably one of the biggest pure vegetarian fine dine in Bangur Area. I would love to visit here soon again with family especially for their daal. 😀
