Had heard a lot about the old world charm of Aminia and its legendary Mughlai cuisine dripped in East Indian flavors. Thus, on a visit to Kolkata, we headed to their outlet at Hathibagan. On the main road that buzzes with activity, a flight of stairs lead you to the restaurant. A number of framed photographs try to bring out the legacy and old world charm of the original Aminia merging seamlessly with the modern interiors of this outlet.
Without wasting much time we placed our order with some help from the courteous staff attending to us. For starters we ordered Chicken Achari Kebabs, Cheese Chicken Kebabs and fresh salt and sweet lime sodas. For main course we ordered Mutton Masala, Chicken Malai Tikka Masala, Buttered Rotis and the famous and unique Aminia Special Mutton Biryani (2 large Mutton pieces, 1 boiled egg and a spicy boiled potato)
Woah, what a feast it was. The food was just wonderful and at that rate, one couldn't help but exclaim with gastronomic pleasure, Ah Aminia!
