Pujo special menu at Country Roads
How many of you are aware of the fact that you can get home-brewed beer in Kolkata? Well, I wasn’t aware of this fact up until a few days ago, when I had the opportunity to visit Country Roads, a microbrewery and restaurant. And, as if crafted beer wasn’t reason enough, it has arranged for some irresistible items to devour this Pujo! Yes, the all new Pujo Special Menu at Country Roads includes food and drinks that go perfectly with each other, their wide range of beers made in the brewery that you can see at work while you enjoy the food at the restaurant. Plus, they have an innovative menu of beverages, too!
Pujo special menu at Country Roads for a ‘brewtiful’ meal this festive season!
All the restaurants in the city are ready with their menus for the festive season. What I found particularly interesting about the Pujo Special Menu at Country Roads is that it has not tried to create another list of Bengali dishes. Instead, this restaurant on the second floor of The Galleria in Rajarhat New Town has struck to its original cuisines, i.e. North Indian, Chinese and Continental, and created some unique items for the Pujas.
After tasting all the Bengali dishes from the Puja menus of different restaurants with my food-blogger friends of Panch Phoron, Country Roads’ menu felt liked a welcome change of pace (or, in this case, cuisine). So, if you’re one of those people who have an amazing mom stuffing you with Bengali food all through the year, and hence, wish to stay away from all tastes Bengali during the festive lunches and dinners, then Country Roads is definitely your place.
We tried their Fried Calamari, Grilled Salmon with Pesto Sauce, House Full Tangi Garlic Wings, Hungarian Goulash, Fish Shish Touk, and Tandoori Stuffed Baby Potato. Each and every item was distinct in tastes and aromas, and the use of aromatics didn’t not overpower the original flavour of the hero of any dish. And, they were so well-presented that for the first time in my life, I believed in the concept of love at first sight.
The Hungarian Goulash became my instant favourite. It’s a dish consisting of boneless mutton marinated with sweet paprika, bell pepper, onion, garlic, and wine, and was served on a bed of herbs rice. The meat and the gravy had been beautifully infused with the aromas of the different ingredients, and there was a very mild sweetness that went beautifully with the slight hint of heat from the paprika. A lovely combination, and a treat for the senses!
To go with the items on the menu, you not only have the amazing beers. I loved their Belgian Blond: it’s light on the taste buds, and gives just the right amount of buzz! And if you’re not too psyched about the taste of beer, then you can try one of the Special Mixes of Country Roads. They have a whole new beverage menu for the Pujo, too!
