Saptarshi Chakraborty, a Kolkota food blogger, has been extraordinarily generous with advice. One of Saptarshi’s top recommendations was Daab Sherbet at Paramount. It’s a cool drink with coconut milk, muddled coconut pulp, and some other flavors. It’s really good. And much needed, because it’s really hot.
One worrisome thing is that Daab Sherbert cannot be served without ice, and one is told to be very leary of ice. Then again, a local food writer assured me it’ll be ok, and without that assurance I’d have missed this tasty drink (which would probably also be useful as a cocktail). Fingers crossed.
