Explore the Asian Delight with @friendsofphorestaurant
Kolkata’s evolving culinary landscape has inspired a new food trend in the city. With chefs aiming to provide a fun, contemporary take on Asian cuisine, Asian food is the new Bong binge. I am always on the lookout for new dining spots in the block. And especially if they’re serving Pan Asian cuisine, my excitement knows no bounds. Friends of Pho– the recent addition, is an all-day diner where scrumptious fare is curated from Japan, China, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam.
Where? The address reads Silver Arch Rajarhat Main Road, Chinar Park. It's just opposite Lokenath Mandir.
What's it about? Friends of Pho is serving food that the chefs have encountered on their travels throughout Asia. The menu contains fascinating nuggets of food history alongside a list of delicious dishes, with many of the classics hitting just the right spot.
The ambiance is reminiscent of an elegant, old-school diner that adds just the right amount of classiness to a casual dining destination like this.
The spacious and comfortable sittings, the hanging bulbs, the wooden Japanese toys gives it the look of a gay Asian fair.
