Kebabs, festivities , fun and Kolkata
It was the weekend after the revelry of the weeks of indulgent eating over Christmas and New Year's when my best friend and I lay exhausted on our beds after a week of hard work post the holidays and were thinking of going out when I realized a bit of extra indulgent food and I would soon be like the couch at the corner of the room.
After a lot of thinking we decided that we wanted something grilled and since Kebabs is your answer to the least unhealthy yet completely delicious meal we zeroed in on one of Kolkata's Kebab houses.
A week later when Supreeta invited us over to sample a Kebab festival at The Astor's Kebab- e -Que I knew I would be in for some delightful surprise.
For those of us who have been born and brought up in Kolkata visiting Kebab e Que has probably been part of our growing up years.
So its the weekend night yet again and you are feeling lazy and would like to simply sit back and relax over some cocktails and spicy finger food with an old friend or a new friend or a group of buddies or some friendly business . Well! well ! How does a wide range of kebabs with full course dinner all under Rs999 for 2 people sound?
That is exactly what the Great Kebab Theatre at the kebab - e -Que is all about. A whole range of unlimited kebabs with a main course to follow and all for Rs999 for 2 is a deal not to be missed.
If you are busy this weekend then do not worry at all for this festival is being hosted every weekend till the 31st of March.
I would especially recommend the Anarkali Mahi Tikka which is not quite like the regular kebabs and with its unusual spices and soft flakiness from the fish it definitely is a kebab I would recommend. If some mildly spiced up kebab si what you are craving do try the Murgh Kalmi kebab.
If you are craving one of Kebab e Que's usual regular fare you have the Murgh Chakori kebab. I would say its kebab e Que's signature kebab and is like a old trustworthy friend.
For vegetarians there is the bankable Hara Bhara kebab and a host of other kebabs. The tandoori aloo was spicy and a perfect accompaniment to some much needed chatting over the weekend.
Head over to The Astor's Kebab -e -Que at 15, Shakespeare Sarani Kolkata -71 on any evening during the weekends till 31st March and do enjoy yourself with some delicious food.
