We Are Celebrating The Kalboisakhis With The Summer Coolers At Byloom

    Hindusthan Park, Kolkata


    We have been quenching our thirst at various quick stopovers as we hunt the city for interesting stuff to recommend to you. Some of the best coolers we have had so far was at Byloom cafe where we witnessed the season’s first kalboisakhis (aka the nor’westers)!

    What Makes It Awesome

    The skies are sunny and hot weather is here, which can mean only one thing: The season for summer drinks is upon us. The beverages menu at Byloom Cafe lists a host of drinks whose names {some based on Bengal’s seasons} will win you over. Try the Shilabrishti {named for the hailstorms that happen in Bengal} has a combination of vitamin C-packed amla and ginger. It’s a bit on the sour side, be warned. The Kanchenjunga is a refreshing mix of mint and lemon iced tea {INR 77} with tea from the gardens of Darjeeling. The tangy Kaal Manjari {INR 99} has fresh pudina leaves and green mango pulp.  They also do a nice daab water with lime and honey, very good for the heat and troubled tummies!

    Pro Tip

    Order some sides like the sandwiches or the Bengal-style fish and chips to go with your drinks. We like parking ourselves in their rainbow-bright outside area though things can get a little stuffy if the AC isn’t working well.
