Chinese New Year Spread at The Wall
A Bong's tryst with Chinese food dates back centuries. Even when the world outside bhaat-daal-maachh (rice-lentils-fish) looked bleak to him, a wholesome plate of fried rice/noodles and chilli chicken brought in a breath of fresh air for this gastronomically indulgent community. Bongs till date get excited by the mere prospect of Chinese food — be it the roadside eatery which serves oil-soaked "chow" or the latest fine dine that has boutique cuisine on offer. The Wall, the bastion of Pan-Asian food in south Calcutta has decided to pander to this sentiment and launch their special Cantonese menu to celebrate the Chinese New Year (the year of the sheep).
This festival is on from February 19-March 5 and is open for lunch (noon to 3.30pm) and for dinner (7.30 to 10.30 pm). A meal for two is likely to cost you 1,500 INR + taxes. The Chinese food lover in me says, Don't give it a miss!
