This review is a month old, but I decided to put up my review for Marco Polo, Kolkata, as I had a lovely time there. Excuse the lack of pictures. I was in a hurry, hungry, and the demise of Sunil Gangopadhyay has made me sad today.
I went in for lunch that day, expecting nothing, because the last time I had eaten there was way back when it had first opened, and I was in a hurry so I quickly ordered something that would not take much time. The waiter suggested a dish of stuffed chicken breast (with cheese of course) and I agreed. My partner did not like me clicking too many pictures, and forbade me to click further, so I was content to take a picture of the glass.
A plate of garlic bread was presented, containing three pieces of thinly sliced bread laden with garlic and herbs (150/-). I found this slightly weird, as three pieces just does not make much sense to me. My partner ordered a beefsteak, well-done, it came with a lot of fries, and was deemed excellent. I would not know because it was also jealously guarded. I was content stealing one fry off that plate.
It was followed by my main, the stuffed chicken breast (around 400/- … I do not remember the exact price for this one). A fat roundel of chicken covered with mushroom wine jus. I immediately decided to cut it open.
Cheese oozed out.
Yes, well, lets not think about the scrumptious crumbed wedges which were piping hot (and I wanted more of it) or the perfectly tossed vegetables. Or the button mushroom-y sauce or the wine-y gravy.
Oh. Oh. The chicken.
It was moist, juicy, perfectly cooked, and cheese-oozey.
And there was caramel pudding (150/-) in the end too, but I was too full to eat it.
My bill came to somewhere around 1300/- for two, sans alcohol.
I would recommend Marco Polo. For the chicken.
