Kolkata’s star hotels are gearing up to present an extravagant feast during Pujo. As expected, Bengali food rules the roost and elaborate lunch and dinner buffet spreads are planned everywhere. This year, the concentration is on providing a more personal touch to a buffet and thankfully for us, the prices have also been kept quite reasonable. If you’ve still not planned where to eat , this Durga Pujo 2017 food guide should be of help.
Durga Pujo 2017 – A Food Guide To Eating At Kolkata’s Star Hotels
The Oberoi Grand
While The Oberoi Grand lays out a fantasmagoric buffet each year, what is noteworthy, is that the quality remains consistently at the top. The Kosha Mangsho continues to be made of lamb, the sourcing of each ingredient is matchless and the end-result quite singularly the best.
This year’s Grand Pujor Mahabhoj is arranged at Gharana and the focus is not just on providing good food (and a lot of it) in the buffet but on making it a memorable experience for guests. Priced at Rs 2000 plus taxes, the feast includes nearly 50-60 types of vegetarian and non-vegetarian Bengali dishes starting from ‘bhajas’ to ‘radha ballabhi and alur dom’ to fish dishes, meat dishes, rice and nearly 15 types of sweets made in-house. The buffet does not include Hilsa but if you want, it is available as an additional a la carte option at a cost of Rs 300 plus taxes per piece.
