JW Kitchen, an experience

Being a foodie since time immemorable obviously urges me to try out new places in town. But, being a social vegan and selectively choosing to go out is quite contrasting to the whole scene.

I love the brand JW Mariott, and I had to try out their food. So, I made sure to head out for lunch with my folks. Pleasantly surprising was, it was the 1st anniversary of JW Mariott in Kolkata. Along with the brand, we celebrated its 1st anniversary with food and cocktails at JW Kitchen.


I always feel special when the chef or the manager comes to the table and asks about the food and the hospitality. This makes you feel royal. But it’s more about the hospitality than me feeling royal.

Though I am a food goblet, yet it is practically impossible to try out everything in a single lunch. My favourite was the cheese section, where they have an international selection of cheese. The prawn cocktails and the salads are really great and you should not miss it. I literally had 3 plates of different selection of breads and salads. The chicken and parmesan salad is a treat to all the senses. I think I would go back one day only for the desserts, which had the low sugar carrot cakes, apple pie and a wide array of selection. I ended my trip with an espresso with the hazelnut cake.

I bite my nails because I do not have enough pictures, but trust me, it’s more of an experience. And particularly for this day, I wanted to soak in the experience, the sight of the food, the generousness of the employees and the taste that leaves you numb in that gastronomic pleasure. That leaves me with another day to go back to this place to freeze edible moments and memories.

I am not a food blogger within inverted commas, with due respect to all. But, I blog for the experience, I write to read memories. And for that reason I would not discuss the price, you can obviously find it out from various sources. But one thing I must mention is that I was pleasantly surprised that 28% GST wasn’t charged, I thought food and beverage at a 5-star is 28%, but we were only charged 18%. For the price, it’s more than worth it, I recommend you must visit JW Kitchen once, for that fine-dining experience. You go to a place, not just for the food, but for the experience and I could see that sense of relaxation in my parent’s smile. The brand stays loyal to its name and principles in every sense.
