The food scene in Guwahati is undergoing an evolution. On Saturday, the Corner Café – situated at Lamb Road, Ambari – hosted a foodies’ meet where bloggers and food enthusiasts of the city tasted the fresh new offerings of the café.
Re-inventing itself much to everyone’s delight, The Corner Café introduced Loco Moco Rice burger, BBQ Pulled Pork Fries, Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup Bread Bowl along with other fresh new offerings.
Talking about the launch days in Guwahati, owner Abhishek Baruwa said that since 2014, when he started his café, there has been a tremendous change in food trends. “I had always wanted to relish the food I used to have in New Delhi’s Big Chill Café. So, I came up with the idea to open my own café in my city. In 2014, I saw my dream come true with the opening of The Corner Cafe. But the challenge was to keep up with the food trends in the city. So, here I am today with a fresh new menu that will attract the youth,” said Abhishek Baruwa, while talking to HeyNortheast.com on the sidelines of the event.
Entering the café, the aroma of fresh coffee beans and the sports-themed fresh new interiors will be an instant delight for any sports lover. Young sports enthusiasts would love chilling out with friends. The food too suits the sporty ambience. The all-new Loco Moco Rice Burger stands out in the menu which is one of its kinds in the city. One can also enjoy Deep Fried Devil Eggs and BBQ Pulled Pork Fries which are some of the new additions to the menu. The menu also boasts of several eye-catchy egg dishes. The cheese omelette is to die for along with the pancakes. Grilled Cheese and Tomato Bread Bowl also looks quite appetising.
The café also promises good beverages. A guy can surely impress his girlfriend with a piping hot cup of cappuccino on their first date! The peppy and hip music will relax you to a great extent. This café will surely attract the youth since it is pocket friendly too.
The event on Saturday saw many food critiques and bloggers participating. “It’s a nice place – the ambience and the interior are quite good. Though this is not a very large place which will actually have a tendency to remain crowded on weekends, the café is quite refreshing. The menu is completely different from the regular ones and I hope the food is also good as it is shown,” said Priyanka Mukherjee from GigglingSpoons.com.
Professional photographer Arpan Kalita, who also attended the event, said “First things first – this kind of café set-up is quite unique. This concept is quite welcomed in our city. I have been here before and I have liked their earlier menu also. The new menu looks promising. In particular, I like the football café here where we can chill-out and watch matches with friends over good food.”
