The menu is designed to turn heads by having a refreshing take on old favourites.

The swoon-worthy dishes include : Spicywisy Fried Chicken Gondhoraj (INR 420) – where the king lemon takes centre stage with delicate flavours furnished into chicken pakoras alongside peas pulao and nachos, Crumbled Jhinga where crumb fried juicy prawns joins hands with kasundi and green chutney (INR 495), the delectable Kosha Mangsho Pizza – a melange of two crowd favourites, Kosha Mangsho resides in the heart of every bengali and add that to the crowd favourite pizza and we have a winning combination (INR 495), a venerable UK twist to an old classic produces Midland Aloo Posto Tikki (INR 280), the house special Chicken 56A boasts of shredded chicken in a tangy mango sauce and peas pulao (INR 420).

Rupali Barua, one of the founders of Cafe Na-Ru-Meg said,” Our lip-smacking summer menu is curated to give our customers a taste of fusion. Our new additions have been created with spices which will give the taste buds flavours which will be both delicate and unique to suit the season. We keep changing and adding new dishes to our signature menu, every season we explore new flavours and these new additions work perfectly for the summer. The kind of food served at the cafe is more on the continental side hence we wanted something that would satisfy a bengali palate. Ingredients like gondhoraj lebu, kasundi, posto etc are beloved items in Bengal, thus incorporating them helped the dishes in becoming irresistible.”
