Santa, his elves and Rudolph have settled comfortably at Mrs Magpie in the special marzipan house that Sohini Basu has built for them. Wanna take a look at how they are doing? Come over to either the Keyatala or the Kasba Mrs Magpie outlet, say hello to them and also taste some of the lovely Christmas delights that are now part of the special limited edition Christmas & New Year menu. Just remember that the special menu will be available only till 5th Jan.
What is on offer? A special Christmas afternoon tea, perfect for two that includes four types of sandwiches, a big pot of tea, cranberry and chocolate scones, slices of the date and walnut cake, stollen and cointreau chocolate mincemeat cake. For the vegetarians, you can choose from the Blue Cheese and Rocket sandwich ( I personally liked it much better toasted) or Sweet Potato sandwich. The non-vegetarians can choose from either the Cranberry Chutney or the Roast Mutton with Mint Chutney sandwich. I loved both!
Mrs Magpie also has a lovely Christmas Goodies Platter which contains slices of the date and walnut cake, chocolate almond brittle, cointreau chocolate mincemeat cake, chocolate fudge with molasses, stollen, fruit cake cupcake with a marzipan figure on top and maple shortbread (my favorite). For Rs 325, this platter is good value for money. Not for the waistline though :D. And to take back home, there are beautifully decorated Christmassy cakes, cupcakes and cookies. Just look at how pretty everything is. And everything tastes great too!
