Your Favourite Café Is Having A Sicilian Street Food Festival And We Cannot Deal

Raisa posted on 9th August

Ten-Second Takeaway

Yet another reason to visit the adorable Mrs Magpie – they’re having a Sicilian Street Food Festival. Foodies, try some never-seen-before Italian treats now.

What Is It?

An Italian street food fiesta – in bite-sized goodness, get your fill of cheese and carbs at Mrs Magpie. Gorge on the crispy-fried arancini {a mushroom rice ball that’s been deep fried}, traditional Sicilian breads stuffed with chicken, calzones, involtini and more. Pizza lovers there’s some for you too – the Sfincione is a deep-pan pizza topped with Sicilian veggies.

Who Is It For?

For any genuine food lover who knows that Italian food is not just pizza and pasta {although we love some cheesy takeout pizza!}, this one is for you. Can’t afford a ticket to Italy but have always wanted to try authentic Sicilian food? This one is for you too! Adore street food in any shape or form? This one is for you three!

Why Should I Go For It?

Curated by chef Sohini Basu who actually visited Sicily and scoured the streets for food {like Kolkata, Sicily too has street food at every turning}, she chose her favourites to put on this special menu of Mrs Magpie. It doesn’t get more authentic than this. Plus, many of the small bites have never been seen before in the city – you don’t want to miss out on it!

Anything Else?

At reasonable rates, you can pick up a Conolo Tart for as low as INR 30 or dig into the platter {a selection of treats from the menu} at INR 225.

Not to mention, that Mrs Magpie is completely Instagram-worthy – the fine details, pastel walls, dainty furniture and stunning cupcakes; do we really need another reason to go?

When: August 5-18

Where: Both the outlets of Mrs Magpie at Salt Lake and Lake Terrace Road

Pocket Pinch for 2: INR 250


The menu is perfect for a high tea with a hot cuppa and a good book to go with it.
