Kolkata, July 2021: A Pan Asian delight, Asia! Asia! Asia- Street BBQ & Buffet is India’s first Asian table grill restaurant that recently opened its doors to the people of Kolkata. Located in Sector V- Salt Lake, the restaurant brings together an eclectic blend of Asian flavours under one roof that is hard to pass up.
Abhimanyu Maheshwari, Founder & CEO, Zing Restaurants, said, “AAA is an ode to Asia. Anyone who is
looking to get a no-holds-barred Asian food experience, without having to limit oneself to only one country’s cuisine, we are the place. Our ever-changing menu and unlimited buffet format allows for a truly indulgent experience at a fixed price. We are certain that our guests will enjoy the entire experience since the offering is unlike any other in the city.” With an on-going pandemic, what we perhaps miss the most is travelling. Asia! Asia! Asia! is here to change that – sprawled across an area of 3500 sq. ft.; this 111-seater outlet is designed to emulate the bustling, chaotic and action-packed streets of Asia. From Japanese teriyaki stallslined across the streets to the aroma of pho in Vietnam, this restaurant is set to take you on a culinary adventure, sans the passport.
The wall graffitis, murals and signages are inspired from the various legendary streets of Asia. There’s no doubt that Asian streets are teeming with flavours and aroma, and one of the key aspects of Asian food across major Asian cities is the iconic street grill; a hot favourite with the crowd, be it local or touristy. Thus it was only apt that each table at the restaurant have its own personal grill. The on-table grill allows
the guests to cook their own skewers. Initially, the skewers are partly cooked on the live Robata Grill, and then finished on the table grill, by the guests. A fun activity for big groups! Additionally, there are sections carved out in the restaurant which are dedicated to smaller private parties. Come for the unlimited skewers, stay for the widespread buffet that includes an array of aromatic and rustic curries, dim sums & stir fries, Asian salads and soups. Along with this bounty of Asian delights, the guests are also served a Japanese aerated flavoured beverage, called ‘Ramune’. The closest parallel that we can draw is to that of an Indian Goli Soda and it’s complimentary. The exhaustive beverage menu also boasts of a range of bubble teas and Asian flavoured iced teas.
The menu comprises of street style cuisines from 8 major countries, namely Thailand, Japan, Indonesia,
China, Vietnam, Singapore, South Korea and Malaysia. If one gets lucky, they can get their hands on the
dishes from Burma and Cambodia, once in a while. Despite the cultural uniqueness of each country, it is their heritage than ties the Asian nations together in a common thread. The brand’s intent is to bring this common thread to the forefront whilst cherishing the individuality of each country.
The restaurant’s signature dishes include Neon Dimsums, Tori Tsukune Teriyaki, Robata Claypot Rice and Southeast Asian rustic curries like Bangkok Street Chicken Kra Pao, Chiang Mai Style Green Curry, Sliced Fish in Black Pepper Sauce to name a few. The brand has also introduced a host of Asian desserts, (a first for Kolkata) that includes the likes of Japanese Mochi Ice-Cream (in multiple flavours), Dorayakis (Japanese pancakes), all of which takes inspiration from the busy streets of Tokyo.
