Cosy & Cute Cake Mixing + Food Tasting Session @ Cafe Yonder, Kolkata 😊

Date: 22 Nov 2021

My latest cake mixing was at the barely two months old first floor based Cafe Yonder, a cosy, cute and brimming with sunlight 60 seater cafe, built at the onset of Purna Das Road, from Golpark island crossing in Kolkata.

With it’s seating arrangements made of clean cut cane furniture, the cafe is neatly divided into – the main dining area, PDR are and an enclosed smoking & shisha zone.

The cake mixing event took place on a moderate sized aluminium tray amidst Christmas carol with full hygiene measures in place.

It was fun to do cake mixing with a whole new set of food enthusiasts.

It was followed by a lovely food tasting & review session.

The well curated tasting session comprised of the following items –

– Banarasi Paan Mojito: It was the usual virgin mojito infused with the elements of banarasi paan.

Not being a paan eater, I refrained from tasting it.

– Baked Mushroom Caps: Placed over a bed of tomato sauce (not ketchup), 6 baked button mushrooms came filled with cheesilicious concoction.

The mushrooms were of good quality and the dish tasted quite good.

– Veg Caesar Salad: It was a mesh of fresh and crisp lettuce leaves, sprinkled with few sliced olive roundels & greens and a generous portion of mayonnaise. The salad came accompanied with a couple of thin and crisp garlic breads.

For those who have a taste for such leafy salads like me, the salad tasted good.

– Pita Falafel: 6 pita pockets filled with falafel, salad, greens and mayonnaise came stylishly placed atop a thick log like wooden tray with separate servings of hummus and tahini.

Both the pockets and dips tasted quite good.

– Malaysian Laksa: Presented in a tajine like black clay vessel, the laksa comprised of a non-spicy green hued rich coconut broth infused with rice noodles and few veggies.

It was hot and tasty. A whiff of kaffir lime would have enhanced it’s taste.

– Dessert Platter: It comprised of two types of cookies, chocolate muffin, orange muffin and blueberry cheesecake.

I tried the last two items.

While the muffin was flavorsome and nice, the cheesecake was a revelation and tasted excellent.

– Blue Tea & Hibiscus Tea: Following the current fad of blue hued food items, wherein the coloring is caused by the blue pea flowers, I opted for the Blue Tea and added some honey and lime juice to it.

It tasted almost like the usual lukewarm honey-lime water that many take in the morning. But the blue color in transparent cups looked interesting. Also, the blue pea flower has numerous health benefits.

All in all, it was a lovely tasting session that took place in the cafe’s PDR amidst good sunlight and hospitality. It was quite nice to enjoy good food while overlooking a relatively silent street.

Cafe Yonder also has an in-house bakery and they gifted me a cool Fall Winter Hamper comprising of the following bakery products –

Assorted Breads From In-House Bakery

Fruit cake slice, masala bread slice, orange cake slice, chocolate walnuut brownie, blueberry muffin, orange muffin, two in one chocolate chip cookies and hot chocolate bomb.

I have already tasted a few of them and they are quite nice.
