AFRA TAFRI - Brew up the Madness

Hello Chicas,

With summers round the corner, Kolkata welcomed the largest transitional Gastro Brew Pub, Afra Tafri. We were invited for a fun cocktail mixing session followed by food tasting. Situated in the heart of the city, adjacent to Industry House on the first floor of Haldiram Building- 9 Camac Street, Afra Tafri is aimed at providing a new age drink and food experience to Kolkata. The 180-plus seater is done up in wood, with plush chairs and sofas as seating options.  Divided into three sections — a large room at the end that can transform into a PDR or conference room, the main seating area that houses the bar, and a spacious and open smoking room. The interiors are very quirky with colorful murals on the wall and a huge drum installation on the ceiling right at the entrance.

The food menu curated by Ranveer Brar comprises of global cuisines with quirky named dishes like Akkad Bakkad Kukkad, Gondogol, Desi Swag Nachos. So the food tasting session started with cocktails made by the legendary bartender, Shatbhi Basu. It was an amazing experience seeing her going behind the bar and making some really innovative cocktails for us. I really liked the Watermelon Mojito which comprised of watermelon juice, black pepper and white rum.
Jager Atom was another winner which is a Red Bull and Jager-meister drink with glowing Jager spheres that pops in your mouth. The drink is very smooth and we couldn't help ourselves ordering another round. The USP of Afra Tafri is the microbrewery which is yet to open and promises some really creative flavored beer.

 Coming to the food menu, my favorite pick from the lot is Chilli Mushroom Pate Jam Pot was the yummiest. It's a jar full of mushroom pate made with oyster mushrooms and olive oil, served with tawa parathas and Bhavnagri chilies to spice up the dish. The Hum Saath Saath hai platter is another favorite which comprises of Indian Breads, Paneer and a bowl of Kaali Daal which is cooked for 72 hours and is to die for. Among the desserts, the Bong Tiramisu stole the show which is an Indian version of the Italian coffee flavoured dessert. 

For the press meet, I wore a grey maxi dress over a white lace up top. I have been wearing this dress since winters and I cannot think of parting way with it anytime soon. A pair of
black gladiators and maroon studded sling completed the look.
