Sip of Soda @Loknath Soda Shop, Baguihati

I was a kid when I loved Soda drinks. It could be any soda drink. No matter what flavour it is, no matter how cold it is. But after a certain time I only prefer such drink on two occasions. When I feel really thirsty and do not find some good drinking water and on the table with alcohol (that too is very rare nowadays).

Back in 2008-09 I enjoyed soda drinks again but not those bottled and labeled with a huge brand name that every celebrity pretend to drink on TV Ad. It was nice fruit flavours with soda available at YES SIR, Hindmotor.

What I had this evening is a superior version of that. It is in Baguihati, attached to Baguhati Super Market. Loknath Soda Shop, Cold soda drinks with a huge variety of flavours. You won't belive that they have flavours like Grape, Kiwi, Blue Berry and even RUM, Fruit Whiskey and Fruit Beer. 120 ml of drink costs only Rs.6/- and the 300 ml is just for Rs.10/-. That's amazing. May be the price is promotional but this is first time I saw such a wide variety of soda drinks available in my neighborhood. I believe these are available at the heart of the city like Esplanade or the fancy malls at a much costlier price but what I had here for 10 bucks would be my first preference anytime. Believe me people are crazy for a sip (I could not even had a good snap).

The summer is here, what are you waiting for??

Penguin, DLF IT Park, Newtown

Penguin is the place to gain some peace on weekend for almost every people working at DLF IT PARK I, Rajarhat, Newtown (obviously for those who enjoy alcohol).

It is not just a Liquor Bar but a nice restaurant too. Unfortunately I have visited Penguin only once till now and here I am going to describe the experience of that single evening.

It was a weekend and we were pretty tired. In a single word, we wanted to visit Penguin! ;)

It was around 9.30 pm when we entered and we ordered Tandoori Chicken in a flash with Bacardi White Rum. It was the most juicy Tandoori I have ever had. Nice, Tender, Juicy and really very tasty. We took no time to finish it order one more!

Then I felt like having a different taste other than Chicken and fish goes well with white rum. I saw a dish on the menu called Devil's Fish. Crisp fried Bekti fillets with saute vegetables in a mild sauce. It was damn tasty too. As it was Devil's Fish, it was pretty hot. I usually avoid food, hot in taste but the devil's fish was exceptional. Especially when you have a bite of fish along with a yellow pepper, it's too juicy and crispy together with a blast of good taste. All these starters were within Rs.300/- and the quantity was satisfactory.

On the main course we had Chicken Tikka Butter Masala and Plain Naan. The Naan was hard but again the Chicken dish was tasty.

The place is well maintained but a little cozy but the service is exceptional. I enjoyed the hospitality! Overall a 8/10. Pay a visit with friends and family and enjoy the Devil's Fish!
