Last month, I was invited to try the newly opened Indian Contemporary Cuisine called Hotel Calcutta located in The Avenues Mall (3rd Phase). We’ve all seen the signs and the colourful painting covering the place and wondered what could this be!
My husband & I went there around 7pm and I was dressed in Indian clothes (got them from my last trip to Mumbai), just getting in the mood I guess 🙂
The whole place looked as if you were having food in a hotel lobby … beautiful decoration, from tables to chairs to a trolly with bags and even the waitresses’ clothes looked magnificent and neat.
We were welcomed in a very hotel-like greeting and we were seated outdoors (our request). The menu was introduced to us and they gave us a little bit of explanations. Everything we’ve ordered turned out to be really good especially the Shrimp Coconut Curry and the Awadhi Biryani …. yum yum! Filled with Indian spices and aroma. I also loved the Mango Shrimp Salad, even though only 3 or 4 shrimps were presented, it was delicious. Also the Gulab Jamon Cheesecake was something, not to be missed!
