A fantastic afternoon at 'Au bon pain' - Park Street, Kolkata

  Getting down from Park Street Metro station two roads are divided, one Main JN road toward Shakespeare Sharani and the other toward Park Street, and within few steps(5 mins walking) you will find this nice and glamorous place ’Au Bon Pain’( just opposite foot of The Park Hotel). 
      
The easiest way to be found by any one specially music lovers is the place where Music World previously used to be. This nostalgic and strategic location makes the place even more attractive for Tourists and visitors. 

I spent a nice Saturday afternoon on invitation with few of my co-blogger friends at the new menu launch of ‘Au bon Pain’.


     Just at the entrance, at the top of the main gate a big poster was hanging,which said  ‘Unlimited flavored tea at just Rs.50/-’, 
It was very interesting and I just asked out of curiosity to one of the serving boys ‘is this a temporary offer?’ and I got the answer ‘No’, this is a permanent one. That is for tea lovers a perfect place to have a taste of different flavoured tea for merely 50 bucks, really interesting.

  Slowly we took our seats and felt relaxed within a few moment. I must mention this is because of their warm welcome and nice seating arrangement with sofas. Sitting  comfortably and sipping mango cooler made us cool, when I am mentioning about cooler,I settled down for the afternoon.The mango cooler is also on for  unlimited flavored drinks at just Rs.69/-.













  For snacks the items we ordered were ‘Keema Kouign-Amann’ and ‘Cone-Wich’. The chicken keema stuffing of ‘Keema Kouign-Amann’ was spicy, yummy and was super fresh. The upper layer bread of the ‘Cone-wich’ was very crunchy. 


       You have lots of option on this Cone-Wich with ‘Mushroom Eggplant’ and ‘Tandoori Paneer’, all added as new menu items.

 Must mention the secret behind their freshness is because of the live bakery which is visible through glass panel separation.

We also tasted ‘Peri Peri Chicken Wings’ and newly added ‘Asian Noodle Salad’ which is a sesame ginger noodles on a bed of greens with almonds, carrots, spring onions and chicken.



The herbs rice with ‘Tofu Thai curry’ was also good and I found the tofu was very soft from inside and the curry was mild spicy. For desert, Brownies was bit fudgy and was perfect in taste.

  
      The place is really happening and is a place for real adda with friends or to spend a nice afternoon with your family; 
   the upper balcony is a special place where you have a chance to stare at the cool outside view while you are grabbing some chocolate muffin with hot tea or coffee. The side walls painted nicely makes the place even beautiful.
So, as a conclusion this place is very easy accessible with a cool ambiance and a whole lot of menu items. A perfect café, one cannot miss it.
