Food we ordered at Snacking, Kolkata :
Snacking has foods of various cuisines and their specialties are continental like Italian and Russian, Indo-Chinese foods are also served here. They have a great beverage menu with lots of mocktails, milkshakes, mojitos, coffee, and teas. We had ordered Kiwi Lemonade, Iced Mocha, Chicken Blini, Malta Chicken, and Grilled Chicken in Creamy Cheese Sauce.
Paromita had ordered this to refresh herself and I sneaked in for a sip or two. This cold beverage looked so beautiful with a cherry and lemon piece on top. It was made from kiwi, lemon, and mint. Thus the ingredients gave an eye-soothing green colour to the drink. They served it in a voluminous cup, so you can’t complain about the quantity. And after the first sip, this one felt like “Vacation in a cup”. Kiwi Lemonade was that refreshing, even they asked my wife to take a sip first and tell if she liked the balance of ingredients.Overall you will enjoy this drink.
“Snacking” is famous for its coffee and they have kept their fame intact. Iced Mocha was exactly like iced mocha, but I missed the option of topping with whipped ice cream. I should have told the waitress to add more coffee than chocolate because sometimes it felt like cold bournvita, but that’s my fault for not giving proper instruction. Again “Snacking” served this in a huge glass, so happy.
Chicken Blini :
11 out of 10 !
If I could give 11 out of 10 marks to one food dish, that is the Blini we had here. Blini is the Russian and Ukrainian variety of pancakes. It is made of flour and chicken or mushroom filled inside of it. These are squared shaped items and cooked in butter, milk, and egg. The outer coating is so soft, it will melt in the mouth, then the creamy paste will fill yourself with unspeakable joy and magic! We liked their Food garnishing also. Most Recommended!
Again we made a great choice. This is a unique creation. Chicken with Malta orange and a beautiful gravy made of garlic, orange pulp, and black pepper(I think). And Oh man! again the garnishing was terrific. This dish contained 6 (six) pieces of Chicken in two skew sticks. The gravy tasted awesome. A good appetizer. Must try it.
Grilled Chicken in Creamy Cheese Sauce:
This is a continental type food dish. The dish contains mashed potato, herbed rice, sauté vegetables, and chicken grilled with creamy cheese sauce. The rice tasted good and the mashed potato was ok. I liked the sauté veggies. But the chicken was a little chewy, but the gravy tasted delicious, cheese was yummy.
Snacking, Kolkata will give all the satisfaction for every penny you are going to spend here.
