I was happy to have had some great food despite a short and tight trip. The Dal at Kesar, the sweet & savoury offerings at Chacha, the Fish at Amar and Matka Kulfi & Tutti Fruiti at Brothers’ are the high points of my trip. These surely give strength to my resolve to visit the city soon to explore more places and dishes which are on my list. Till then..
Back in India, from over a month and a half trip in Pakistan, the Jalali Couple thought of bringing alive those authentic flavours and this is how the NWFP Food Festival was conceptualized. So, my Sunday Brunch was a lavish spread with some meat, some more, and more, and more….
As the luck would have it, five days later I was in Kolkata. And, was committed to be there at The Blue Poppy-Thakali. Once again, it was an evening full of amazing food and unending talks and photo sessions. We were hosted at the personal table of Doma (the first on the left as soon as you enter). The food line up, personally chosen by Doma, unfolded like a Bollywood thriller with a superb climax.
