If you are looking for a good buffet in Kolkata, you should definitely go to K-19 at Park Plaza, Ballygunge. Their spread is huge and they have a wide selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes and desserts. Recently, they have also started a rather interesting Night Revellers Buffet, available from 10 pm – 1 am, specially created for late night party goers. And the best thing about the buffet is that you get to eat all that food at a discount of 50%! For Ramzan, K-19 has included a few special dishes in the dinner and Night Revellers Buffet and I was invited by the management for a tasting.
Some of the Ramzan special dishes in the starters include Machhi Talatil, a fried fish, Peyaz Pakora and Saufiyan Paneer Tikka. I saw that the menu had Nizami Murgh Biryani, Gosht Haleem and Afghani Macchi so I didn’t really steer towards the vegetarian side but I heard that the Sultani Dal, Awadhi Style Aloo Methi Masala and the Chukunder Paneer were really good. K-19 always makes a great Biryani and this one was fabulous as well. I would have liked some more mutton in the Haleem though. For dessert, you must try the Pakizah Phirnee and the Aam Halwa.
The Ramzan specials are available till 6th July.
