Shubho Nobo Borsho, Friends. Happy New Year.
Bengalis across the world are celebrating ‘Poila Boishak’ or ‘New Year’ today. The first day of Baisakh marks the beginning of the Bengali calendar.
I make sure I don’t cook lunch on this day. Here in Mumbai, we have been lining up at Oh Calcutta in Tardeo or Bijoli Grill in Powai for the ‘Nobo Borsho’ lunch. But today, being Tuesday and the accompanying work pressures, we shan’t be able to make it to the scrumptious spreads. And what is the point for thinking about it for dinner? We are small eaters and can’t see a big spread go by without being able to dig into it.
And so, decided to do the review of Bhojohori Manna where we had lunched 2 Sundays back.
Where is Bhojohori Manna? We are talking about the one in Jogeshwari West, opposite On Heera Panna Mall.
How is the ambience @Bhojohori Manna in Andheri? Very basic. At least they now serve in the ceramic plates instead of those white-going-yellow plastic plates! But guess, the ‘no frills’ ambience keeps them alive in Mumbai’s killing rental regime. The biggest plus point for Bhojohori Manna is their big courtyard. Yes, you read it right. They are a courtyard restaurant in Andheri, and grow veggies in the courtyard!! And we were just talking about Mumbai rentals, weren’t we? J I love to check out the chillies, papayas, lemons, every time I am there…
How is the food @Bhojohori Manna in Andheri? Manna from the heavens! We went for Fish Fry, Luchi-Alur Dom, Kosha Mangsho-Pulao and loved them all except the Alur Dom. I have a special weakness for Kosha Mangsho and Pulao and Bhojohori Manna cooks both to perfection. Can completely floor a Bengali…
Whenever at Bhojohori Manna, do not forget to order their ‘Noren Gurer Ice Cream’. Unless you eat it, you wouldn’t know what you’d have been missing in life.
