TRIBE CAFÉ, at 67 Ballygunge Gardens, Golpark, celebrated the 92nd Birthday of Tintin, the epic character created by Hergé with the launch of a menu that would be on till 31st January, 2021. This day was further commemorated with an open discussion that featured Tintin enthusiasts from different fields of life and a Tintin-themed quiz that was conducted by Rajarshi Nag.

Speaking on the occasion, Ms. Shilpa Chakraborty, Mr. Sanjay Roy Chowdhury and Mr. Pinaki Ranjan Ghosh, Co- Owners of TRIBE, said, “We are very much attached to Tintin. We could never miss the chance to congratulate him on his birthday. Most of us have grown up reading The Adventures of Tintin, and thanks to the adaptations of radio, television, theatre and films, the comic book character became everyone’s favourite, and have even inspired many of us. He truly inspired us to dream big. With our month long celebration we hope our patrons transport into the world of Tintin at TRIBE and relive their favourite childhood memories.”
The Tintin-themed menu, curated for TRIBE by restaurant critic and food writer Poorna Banerjee, features dishes inspired from Tintin. Speaking about this, Shilpa Chakraborty, OWNER, TRIBE, said, “We wanted a menu that would be based on remembering all the best moments based on Tintin. So after a lot of careful discussion and research, we curated this menu to recollect our favourite comic character. The menu is our small initiative for our patrons to take them on a journey to the good old memories of Tintin.”
