Milee Droog

When it comes to Russian beverages, most of us are only familiar with that one iconic alcohol. And you definitely shouldn’t start your day with that. However, there are other Russian beverages that are far more suitable for consumption at breakfast. If you’re anything like us and don’t know what they are, this new cafe & bistro in Deshapriya Park is here to help you out! Milee Droog is the first cafe in Kolkata to introduce a Slavic influence to your cafe experience.

Milee Droog Is Here To Introduce You To Russian Flavours

Housed in a refurbished 110-year-old dilapidated Romanian palatial house, it seems as if this space was meant to be a Slavic joint. It exudes an enchanting and friendly vibe which makes it a perfect hangout spot for friends. Coincidentally (or perhaps not so coincidentally), the name Milee Droog, in Russian, means ‘dear friend.’ So you can be sure that this place was created to provide one of the best Russian-influenced hangout spots! The comfortable vibes and chill ambience will definitely make it one of your favourite cafes in Kolkata. The interiors have that classic neocolonial decor that Kolkata is famous for. The neoclassical decor also has a lot of art deco influence to it to give it a little twist.

Blinis, Borscht & Beyond

Milee Droog features recipes from various Slavic countries like Bulgaria, Turkey, Poland, Azerbaijan, Ukraine, and of course, Russia. It even has a hint of Spanish and Mexican influence in the cuisine. The food is made keeping in mind the diverse flavour palate of Indians. It is tailored to the Indian tongue without losing its Slavic identity. This is no small feat to accomplish. Bite into the soft yet dense Russian pancakes called Blinis or finally taste the infamous cold soup Borscht. It has some of the most iconic as well as lesser-known but nonetheless tasty Russian dishes. Try their lamb chops glazed with coffee or tuck into their Tuscan Grilled Polenta. If you’re a foodie who is always looking to explore uncommon cuisines, this cafe will definitely jive with your vibe!
