Mineority By Saby – Class apart Miners Theme based restaurant! — Reviewed!

Mineority by Saby, a multi-cuisine dining restaurant, located in Kalyani Nagar, is a venture by celebrity chef Sabyasachi Gorai. The theme, wall decors, paintings, ambiance, seating of the place is inspired by the miners from the Asansol and near-by areas. The pulley-inspired bar, funky quirky coasters, hanging lamps, canary yellow birds, lively roof-top seating are some of the attributes of the vibrant place.

The menu itself is very much Indianised featuring primarily North Eastern cuisines. It includes some interesting dishes like Coal Grilled Soya Chops, Mushrooms Shoe Roll, Spiked Ghugni, Miners Nacho Pile, Miners Ortolano Pizza, Litti Chokha, Kasundi Veg Jhal, Jurassic Cheesecake to name a few.

We started our evening with the refreshing Watermelon and Pomegranate based mocktails. Kalimpong Chilli Cheese Rolls were served first. Deep fried wafer-thin spring rolls sheets were filled with the Kalimpong cheese, hill coriander, mayo and served with the robust-flavoured kasundi dip. Tad greasy but the cheese steals the show.

One of its kind Soya chaaps were the Coal Grilled Soya Chops. Black marination done to the soya chunks were quite indicative of the miners theme of the restaurant. The smoky flavour, rich marination are the features of the dish. Served with the refreshing green chutney and onions by the side, Soya Chops are one of their signature dishes.

Latin Queso Fondido was served next. Rich, creamy, silky molten cheese with mushrooms was accompanied with croutons and homemade chips. Scrumptious it was. Loved the texture of the Cheese fondue.

With the drinks, we also munched on the deep fried Miners Masala Papad made with Ragi flour and served with the lip-smacking Mango Salsa and Jalapeno Verde. It was really addictive! Also, we tried the Jhalmuri, the local favourite. Traditionally, Jhalmuri is prepared with puffed rice, an assortment of spices, tomatoes, potatoes, and mustard oil. Here, served in a jar with sweet and spicy chutney, it was the miners take on the regular Jhalmuri. The taste was good though.

Was quite excited to try the popular Litti Chokha and Ghugni. Served in the earthenware with the smoky flavour the coal smoked dumplings, the Litti (filled with sattu) was heavenly. So was the baingan chokha. Cooked in the mustard oil, the chokha tasted so good that one can eat it like that only. Also, the Ghugni (Black chana tossed in the Kasundi Sangrita Vinaigrette) paired with Litti was yum. The authentic way to relish this dish is to break the ghee-laden litti into pieces, mix some chokha and ghugni and eat with hand. One needs to develop the palate to enjoy Litti-Chokha. Totally Recommend.

We also tried Chanar Dalna, a cottage cheese curry based dish with homemade masala served with the soft triangle paranthas. Very rich, melt-in-mouth paneer balls and paranthas were loved by one and all.

One of the best Tres Leches Cake I had here. Ultra-light, three milk cake was rich, spongy and tender. I am not a fan of milk-based dessert but this one is Highly Recommended. From the desserts, we also tried The Jurassic Cheesecake, the inspired recipe of one of the oldest cheesecake from Orissa. Chenna Podda topped with guaja flakes was cheesy, smooth and bit too sweet.

Last but not the least, Chocolate lovers had to try Miner's Dark Devil Cake. All things chocolate, this mud cake was heavenly and so sinful. The luscious, chocolatey cake is a must try!

Overall, the vibes of the Mineority By Saby is lit. A perfect place to chill out with friends at the ground floor or the rooftop romantic dinner in the cosy ambience.
