Mocambo! The name speaks it all. A legendary food hub located at the Free school street, park street. Honestly what is park street without Mocambo? My eating out journey started with this place so whenever I turn up here, sheer nostalgic memories occupy me completely. With the beautiful interiors, the pretty decorum, the orange hanging lights, the mini flower pots on every table and the comfy couches-Mocambo is amazingly beautiful. The attendants and staff is polite and warm in their gesture. I love everything about this place. To start with the food, Devilled crab should always be in the list of your starters. Sizzlers have made Mocambo what it is today. So go for any sizzler like Chicken chipolata or Grilled chicken. I swear by Grilled chicken sizzler everytime I visit the place. Chicken a la keiv is also a beautiful dish. Apart from all this I love their chicken tandoori & biriyanis as well. I am not a huge lover of their desserts to be honest. This is an expensive outlet obviously so whenever I hit this place, i make sure i am with my parents. ;) Do go for this place if you have not gone yet. You'll be delighted. Take my word for it.
Whenever I feel like having Continental, there is no better place than Mocambo. I went there with my friend Susanta Bhattacharya , who is not very fond of Continental. We ordered 'Fish A La Diana' and 'Chicken Pavlograd', both my personal favorites. I just love their signature dishes 'Fish A La Diana' and 'Chicken Pavlograd'. Each item was just perfect! The chef knows what spices and herbs to add to make each dish delectable. Yummylicious I say. 'Chicken Pavlograd' was first to appear, an authentic dish with some superb flavours! Cutting 'Chicken Pavlograd' with a knife itself was soooo exciting. Tasted awesome, believe me!! We finished it in a jiffy...!! Next comes 'Fish A La Diana'.. Vetki stuffed with prawn, mushroom & some vegetables cooked in rich creamy white sauce.. tasted just heavenly .... yummmyyyy!!!.
Service is slow. However, the waiters and stewards are usually polite, and do try to speed up service when asked. My personal suggestion would be to throw caution to the wind and indulge in some rich heritage creaminess when in one is in the mood for it. Pricing is moderate and should not pinch you, considering the heritage value of the property and the amazing food.
