Bengal Brothers – ADDA Brunch
We adore the new-and-improved Bengal Brothers with its expanded Indian street-food offerings for lunch and dinner, and we couldn’t be more pleased that the team have also added a brunch menu to their repertoire. Termed “ADDA” (a Hindi word used to describe a communal meeting place where people gather for convo), the eatery presents flavourful brunch dishes starring eggs (like eggs kejriwal featuring two fried eggs on chilli-cheese toast with tadka potatoes and masala burji pav, or a double egg scramble with onion, tomato and green chilli served with buttery grilled bread rolls and mint chutney) and idli plates. The drink options are just as enticing – think masala chai, coconut lassi, South Indian filter coffee and fresh juices.
