Indulge in the ambiance, art and food at Artsy

Artsy – Coffee & Culture

Creativity takes Courage – Henri Matisse

Kolkata gets its first, very own art cafe serving as a gallery for the souls hungry for art as well as great food. After a day long shopping and walking around the corners of Park Street and Esplanade, we decided to pop in a place to relax and indulge in some chit-chat.

Visit:

Located inside the alley of Minto Park, the cafe is little hard to find, but the Artsy have done a great job by placing the painted direction for better navigation. The bright yellow and blue interior is sure to calm anyone’s eyes and soul. The particular interior, design, color combination, ambiance and aura is sure to lift your mood. I love the cozy sitting arrangement with bright yellow and blue sofas, and bean bags. The cafe has a small book shelf that allows you select a book and read from. After all what’s a better companion, than a book, with a hot coffee and cold evening ? Apart from the cafe, the place acts as a gallery for young artists and promoting art.

Food: Although the menu section is limited, but the variety and taste is not. They offer a wide section of tea and coffee. But, I felt like the dessert section could be improved.

What we ordered ~

Thai Chicken Salad:

Apart from being extremely photogenic due to the presence of red cabbage, the salad was extremely tasty and fulfilling. Lettuce, onions, capsicum and ample portion of roasted lemongrass chicken were tossed together and perfectly coated with sweet-sour vinaigrette dressing.

Red Bean Burger:

In-spite of being a chicken lover and hard-core non-vegetarian, I do love this burger. Read bean burger patty was made with stuffed spicy red beans. A generous amount layer of mozzarella cheese was spread over the patty and with a layer of salsa. The burger was spicy, juicy from inside and fulfilling. Red Bean Burger was accompanied with potato chips.

Hot Chicken Sandwich:

Have you ever had Zinger Burger from KFC? Did you love it? If yes, then my friend, I must say, this burger will give KCF a run for their money. The fried chicken, marinated in buttermilk, the mayonnaise, slices of tomato and lettuce. The picture perfect, or rather tummy perfect burger. The chicken was crispy from outside and juicy from inside with all the flavors. Just loved it !

Pan-Roasted Chicken:
