In order to offer mouthwatering ilish dishes to foodies in the city, 6 Ballygunge Place, has announced the commencement of its signature Ilish Festival at its Guwahati outlet today.
The Ilish Festival is aligned with the season and availability of the fish and the menu has been curated by Sushanta Sengupta, director and celebrity chef of 6 Ballygunge Place. The festival menu offers many tantalizing ilish items. It will offer a comprehensive ilish thali, consisting of a number of ilish specialties. The festival special dishes are priced between Rs 275 to Rs 600.
Speaking about the festival, Sengupta said, ‘Ilish festival is synonymous with 6 Ballygunge Place and it has become a part of our yearly festival calendar. We started this festival much before other restaurants. However, the availability of good and fresh Ilish becomes a concern at times and hence we time our festival with the availability of fresh fish. This year we have innovative items like purbhora morich Ilish, badami Ilish maacher roast, aam tel ilish, etc.’
Keeping in mind food safety, the restaurant has a R&D team who carries out repeated tests of the food in the restaurant. The restaurant in Kolkata has won numerous awards and recognitions from esteemed organizations like Lonely Planet, National Geographic, American Express, The Telegraph and many more. It is also the first retail outlet in India to register its address as a trademark.
