Christmas at Flurys

If you're in Calcutta during Christmas, and I insist on calling my city Calcutta rather than Kolkata, especially in this context, you can't not take a stroll down Park Street and if you are on Park Street you might as well stop for a meal at Flurys. In fact you must, especially to sample their Christmas Specials menu. I have.

The predominantly meaty main course section includes holiday classics like - Traditional Roast Turkey with onion stuffing and the works - roasted new potatoes, crunchy vegetables, bacon wrapped chipolata sausages - topped with a sweet and tart cranberry sauce; Grilled pork chops with maple glaze served on a bed of bacon studded rice with vegetables like Brussels sprouts, baby corn and carrots, and a chunky, caramelized pineapple sauce, finished off with some rocket salad; Parmesan-crusted baked fillet of Basa. My pick - the pork chops especially for that delectable layer of fat and the sweet and tart pineapple sauce.

Desserts include, the in house specialty Christmas pudding served with caramel cinnamon custard, white chocolate and strawberry trifle and warm pannetone pudding. topped with creme anglais and hazelnut sauce.

The specials are on offer for lunch and dinner up to January 4, 2015. The pork or Turkey dinner (main course and dessert) is priced at Rs 950, while the fish dinner would come for 750. Vegetarians could opt for the Mushroom, Brussels Sprout and baby corn shepherd's pie with sweet potato and cheddar mash, along with a dessert of their choice, priced at Rs 600.

Wish you all a Merry merry Christmas
