Salad Bar

 

This spacious restaurant close to southern avenue takes grub to a different level. It’s pretty hard to go wrong at The Wall, even though they boast an extensive menu. The food here may not be fancy, but it’s clearly prepared with heart. The Wall is a all time favourite when it comes to sating those oriental cravings. Celebrity Chef Sushanta Sengupta flaunts his handiwork and dedication to presentation through sophisticated tapas with modern twists. The innovative monsoon special salads & cocktails are even made using fresh ingredients selected by chef himself.

From the bar, six new concoctions have been shaken up. Choose from ‘Monsoon Magic’ (Vodka with cranberry, orange juice, shaken with strawberries), ‘Nimbus 2000’ (cool lychee and vodka drink, muddled with lemon and mint), ‘Rain Dance’ (coconut water, tequila, lime juice mixed in a coconut shell) and ‘Thunder Storm’ (a fruity vodka based cocktail for that booming effect). There’s ‘Cloudburst’ too, a roasted mango sorbet spiked with vodka.

A must-try salad is their Mango Salsa Salad, a truly innovative salad of lemon grass and crispy bhetki. You won’t stop swooning over how good this is. Their Prawn Cabbage & Spinach Roll with yellow mustard & wasabi jelly is a unique find and is definitely worth a try too. Go for Grilled Chicken Salad; they do a nice, smoky sear on the outside while leaving the centre soft, so that you get to enjoy the curry flavoured chicken. Bang Bang Chicken gives a slightly caramelised exterior, ridiculously juicy and tender, this one’s definitely for non-veg lovers. Bang Bang Chicken Salad and Grilled Chicken Salad both well marinated in a special aromatic sauce and not for the faint hearted. The well-executed fusion of flavours leads to unexpected and often delectable results.

with Chef Sushanta Sengupta

 

Speaking about the selection of menu, Chef Sushanta Sengupta said, “Oriental cuisine has a wide range of salads to offer, which we don’t have in our regular menu and that’s why we designed this Salads & Cocktails Festival, bringing in recipes from china, Indonesia and Japan. Keeping the weather in mind we also included those new cocktails.”

So, begin your monsoon adventure with ‘The Rainy Tales’. Spoil yourself with some Prawn Cabbage & Spinach Roll, Organic Seasonal Salad of all kinds, super tasty Mango Salsa Salad, freshly made Nasu Yaki Salad, Seaweed & Lotus Root Salad and even Bang Bang Chicken Salad! You’d be glad to know that despite the vast variety, the quality remains high. Complete the meal by sharing few innovative monsoon cocktails like Rain Dance, Monsoon Magic or Cloud Burst.

1915940_101100699948573_1759232_nRajdeep Bhattacharjee wears many feathers in his cap. A ravenous eater, a thirsty drinker, an enthusiastic traveller and a very sound sleeper – Rajdeep, once a wannabe hacker and now a Government employee, is an aspiring food critic and travel blogger. He hates the loose use of the word 'foodie' and prefers, instead, the expression 'food devotee'. For him, good food and honest people are the biggest motivators.

He is the founder of Gourmets Travel Guide, a website devoted completely to food and travel. Rajdeep is an avid blogger and one can find many of his sojourns aptly expressed on the website www.gourmetstravelguide.com.

Rajdeep had been recently chosen by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) to board the inaugural flight from Kolkata to Bangkok (TG – 336) and received accolades for wonderfully recounting the experience, from start to finish, in his blog. In fact, his travelogue was featured in Hangla Hneshel, one of India's foremost Bengali magazine dedicated completely to food and travel. Rajdeep doesn't stop there! One of his undersea walks also got featured in The Telegraph, one of India's leading dailies. He is also one of the chief curators and a selector for chefs and restaurants for Channel One's Resto Ranna episodes.

Zomato ranks Rajdeep among the top ten food connoisseurs in the city. He has also been ranked number 5 and 6, in this year's Network 18 and Burrp surveys respectively, as one of the discerning food critics in the country.

Rajdeep loves eating out at different restaurants. A true blue Bengali at heart and gut, experimenting with food and palates come naturally to him. And he doesn't mind leaving an endearing word or two for chefs who have displayed their talents on the plate and the restaurant management for the inviting ambiance of an eatery.

Rajdeep counts is as his forte the wonderful rapport he shares with different media houses. Thus his writings have already been picked up by top food journals and news dailies apart from the exposure he has to talk about them on social media. Reputation management of his clients come naturally to him be it on the virtual platform or in print.

He has been blogging for the last three years. When he is not writing on food and travel or working as a Government employee, you can most certainly catch him with a camera slung around his neck and travel gear ready to satisfy his inner wanderlust.
