Go Talli, not Broke:

Hangovers very often, are accompanied by the ‘Empty-Wallet Syndrome’. With taxes on alcohol reaching an obscene level, a drinking session outside is really getting taxing for young adults. And while I have no remedy for the hangovers, the EWS is now easily curable with the Talli menu at the Bodega Cantina Y-Bar at Park Street, Kolkata.

Bodega is one of my favourite places in town, with its quirky decor and pretty platings. I went to try out their new Talli Menu with a friend, and the experience was not just fun, but intoxicating too, literally.

The concise yet attractive menu consists of 5 cocktails and 2 snack boxes. The drinks, whose potency I can vouch for, are all priced between INR 150/- to INR 300/-; and that’s the price inclusive of taxes (yes, you read that right!).

My favourites were the ‘Sheila ki Jawani’ with its classic cinnamon-orange combination and the ‘Moves like Jager’ with Jagermeister, orange, mint and palm sugar.

For those who like their cocktails with a tang, the ‘Beer Batli’ with whiskey, beer, lemonade and lime, is a perfect treat.

The Chakna boxes, in both its vegetarian and non-vegetarian avatars, were the perfect accompaniments to the drinks. Each box packs different kinds of spicy, irresistible snacks, ranging from masala chips to chicken pops, with two very interesting dips.


So,

– if you go into a bar for a drink and come out only after downing around half a dozen, this should be your go to place.

– if your friends won’t let you off without getting a daru-treat on your birthday, this should be your go to place.

– if you just want to enjoy sipping a good cocktail and nibble into some hot and spicy munchies on any day of the week, alone or with friends, without burning a hole in your pocket, this definitely should be your go to place.

Happy drinking folks!
