KOOKIE JAR

India Today - - COVER STORY -

Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar? Well, if it was one from Kookie Jar, then the sus­pects could be many, for this shop, which opened back in 1985 had awestruck school chil­dren lin­ing up out­side their Raw­don Street out­let to watch sand­wiches with ex­otic

fill­ings be­ing put to­gether right in front of their eyes. To their credit, Academy Award win­ning film­maker Satya­jit Ray him­self wrote a let­ter of ap­pre­ci­a­tion for an out­stand­ing birth­day cake they crafted for him. Even af­ter so many years in busi­ness, owner Lovey Ka­pur prom­ises “a taste that will take you back to Paris, like no one else in the city can". With three out­lets and one restau­rant to their merit, they haven’t been as ag­gres­sive as some of the new brands that have popped up in the city since. How­ever, they have re­tained their faith in one fact—those who pre­fer qual­ity will al­ways turn to Kookie Jar. The must tries here are the lemon tart and choco­late boat.
