The Revamped Return Of Serafina, Quest Mall

Disclaimer: I was invited by the management of Serafina, Kolkata for food tasting. What follows next is an honest experience. Take it with A Pinch Of Salt! PS.

The Salt House : A European Thoroughfare With A Twist

I was invited to revel in Kolkata's newest European destination that guaranteed I'd change my perception of European cuisine altogether. Curiosity led me to the 6th floor of the Shakespeare Point Building (that houses Club Boudoir and Fashion At Big Bazar) down number 40, Shakespeare Sarani; and what I encountered at The Salt House was nothing less than sheer bliss.

Every cafe, a small start-up, canteens, even certain roadside stalls offer to woo you with their delicious versions of pastas and risottos; and if that wasn’t enough, pizzas have literally become the staple diet of urban India!…
