Tall tales

India Today - - SIMPLY KOLKATA -

A road­side bistro vibe and a high atrium giv­ing it oo­dles of space are just a few things that sets this swank new café in Kolkata’s IT hub apart from oth­ers. The owner, Sud­hir Ahuja of Bonie Foods, also runs a rock pub just up­stairs that hosts live gigs from time to time. The man­age­ment’s taste in mu­sic has rubbed off on this café too and the playlist is a lot more pleas­ing to the ears than the dance and techno beats that plays in most other cafés. A taste­fully stacked book­shelf com­pletes the feel.

CAF­FEINE COUNTER Their thick- as- pulp shakes and soothing teas come in glasses that are so tall that they

might just need a lad­der! Try the raw mango rock salt and green chilli smoothie on a hu­mid Kolkata day or ka­sundi and strawberry smoothie for an un­con­ven­tional taste.

MUNCH THIS The quick­est bites here are their naaz­zas or naan piz­zas — Naan breads topped chicken

tikka or keema do pyaza.

PEO­PLE WATCH Pop­u­lar with yup­pies. Also a good place for a solo meal. Pick a book friend and cosy up with a tall latte.

IN­SIDER TIP Or­ders take long so ei­ther ask for some­thing that can be made quickly or set­tle down with time to spend. AT EN1, Sec- 5, Salt Lake, Kolkata TEL 66064206

COST FOR TWO Rs 800
