According to Sabyasachi Gorai, “The present diners are mindful and need to think about the root of sustenance on their table. The menus of today are a sign of that. Furthermore, I would not like to baffle myself or them. So for my eatery, I intentionally go local. Sourcing nearby fixings from Kolkata (be it Gondhoraj lemons, local cheddar, jaggery or a specific assortment of bitter gourd). Utilizing clay cooking pots and utensils”.
That is evident from every dish that comes to our table.
We started the night with a couple of drinks.
Drinks at Mineority By Saby
My Yellow Canary: Like the canary bird, this yellow drink came in a cage. The combination of turmeric and lemon and white wine was cherish-able. Beautifully presented this gin-based cocktail was refreshing.
Handmade: A tribal frothy beer made from rice and fermented in a handi. This had a contemporary touch to it with a hint of gin and ale paired with coconut cream. Although the concept is pretty nice the drink fails to impress my taste buds.
Pomegranate Virgin Mojito: A beautiful touch to the classic mojito. Usually, a virgin mojito is a mixture of lime and carbonated drinks with mint leaves. This one is unique. Not high on sugar or the fizz, pomegranate adds another dimension to the taste.
Food at Minority By Saby
Jhalmuri: Classic Bengali street food. Puffed rice, onion and green chillis, peanuts. It tastes good when paired with cocktails and mock-tails. If you’re a spice junkie, then you may add more green chillis as per your taste. Peanuts add a nice crunch to the popular bar bite. Try this famous Bengali snack and relish its spicy and tangy flavours.
Latin Queso Fundido: A delicious mix of 3 popular cheese. Gouda, mozzarella and processed cheese, the fondue is always a personal favourite! What’s good, this fondue also has mushrooms which taste a lot better than a plain version.
Mamus’ Chicken Cutlet: Perfect golden fried cutlet. Soft, juicy, boneless chicken chunks wrapped in flour and deep fried can delight people from all age group.
Litti Chokha and Ghugni: Another classic. I am a big big fan of Litti Chokha, but I was habitual of eating it with Spoon. Rutuja Gore the PR was pretty fascinated by the fact that she can show me how to eat it correctly by hand. It was the process which she learned from Saby directly. The taste was pretty decent and I would love to try it again.
Desserts at Minority By Saby
Tres Leches Cake: This Spanish cake felt a bit out of theme. Everything was going well according to the miners’ theme. With this dessert, I knew what to expect. The milk cake was flavourful, light and fluffy.
The Jurassic Cheesecake: Another out of place at
Miner’s Dark Devil Cake: This is the best of the lot you can order at Mineority. Mud cake layered with dark Chocolate which tasted heavenly delicious. Its perfectly balanced and was not too sweet and perfect for my taste. Recommended
Although the place is quite unique when it comes to the decor, Few dishes need some tweaks and are not up to the mark. I walked in awestruck and left the
