Chinese specials at Juice Junction

For centuries, there has been an active Chinese community in Kolkota that has been doling out their fusion recipes to a thriving hungry market. It is because of these people that we call noodles, manchurian and the like Chinese food even though it doesn’t even come from China. This uniquely Indian “Chinese” food has conquered the globe as an Indian phenomenon, popular as snacks or even meals in their own right.

And why wouldn’t they be popular? Just take a look at what Juice Junction has on the menu:

Gobi Manchurian

Try convincing a child to eat all his vegetables, lay on a lot of cauliflower. That plate of food is going to remain uneaten. And then the child will convince everyone else to get some gobi. It’s transformative!

And gobi comes in other varieties apart from the popular gobi manchurian.

And we have some other specialities for you too! In years gone by, a new kind of manchurian has swept the town. What is essentially palak, or spinach, has come to be known by an amusing malapropism – Spanish Manchurian. Try out our Popeye variation on Chinese!

And hardly ever found, but in much demand from our customers, we’ve added two other items to the menu:

Aloo Manchurian

Veg Manchurian – You get all the veggies!

South Indian Special

Recently, this author came across a strange press release about dosas. It’s not that our South Indian dishes don’t make headlines, they do. What was strange was that this was on a blog about start ups in Washington,
D.C. A few link sharing hours later, a few of my friends and I sat dreaming of the breakfast to come – it was around three o clock in the morning. It was the first time we had a real hunger for our very own south Indian cuisine – Idlies, Vadas, Dosas, Khara Bath, Kesari Bath and so many other dishes. People on the other side of the world were enjoying dosas made by an NRI, describing it to each other as like, “crepes,” being ordered by the politicians who work at The White House.

And here I am, minutes away from the most authentic selection of South Indian breakfast food, made with South Indian ingredients by Residing Indians. And that’s exactly what you’ll get at Juice Junction, where we have your favourites on the menu, as tasty as the local cuisine is famous for, served hot and fresh anytime you order.

If you look at the Idli, at first you just see a breakfast dish. Looking closer, you find it a nice accompaniment with Vada. What about immersing the idli wholly into a bowl of sambar? And it isn’t just breakfast! It makes as the perfect snack en route, something to fill your stomach before a night out, that perfect evening companion – whatever you need. People
crush their idlis in sambar before eating it like upma. How would you prefer your idli?

Or may be you’d like the Rava Variation?

And let’s not forget their ever popular sidekick, the vada!

And where do we even begin with dosas? We have so many varieties and they
all seem to be equally popular. Our dosa maestro is certainly obliging of
the vast menu!

Would you like the kind that goes with sambar?

Bath. Or together – the Chow Chow (Both) (Bahaut) Bath 😀
