Old taste, new vibe

India Today - - SIMPLY KOLKATA - by Malini Ban­er­jee

The thirty- year old patis­serie Kookie Jar now has a new sib­ling just one road away from its Raw­don Street ad­dress, which is a good thing, since the tiny con­fec­tionary never re­ally had room for din­ing even though its Ali­pore out­let did of­fer meals un­der their other brand name, Man­gio. Kookie Jar Café has sim­i­lar of­fer­ings like Man­gio ex­cept in a more con­cise café for­mat. Sand­wiches, pani­nis, even parathas are rein­vented as wraps on the menu. Must tries in­clude thin- crust, well- bal­anced piz­zas, and pas­tas, es­pe­cially the penne with creamy ba­con. But noth­ing can beat Kookie Jar’s desserts. Be it their warm blue­berry crum­ble pie, or their fail- safe mud pie, ev­ery­thing is bound to be good if not su­perb. At Kookie Jar Café, 8/ 3, Loudon Street
