A Family Outing at Piccadilly Square

Does Christmas reminds you of the smell of dried cherries, cranberry, orange and freshly baked cakes? Well, relive your memories in Piccadilly Square, as they present to you Fruit cakes, Chocolate, Walnut Cake, Carrot and Cinnamon Cakes. But there is a small twist to your Christmas cakes this year- even though they taste incredible, they are vegan, i.e. the dairy, alcohol and eggs are not added to these cakes. So this Christmas, if you are planning to go Vegan, Piccadilly Square for sure is the best place to start with. Piccadilly Square can also be a great option if you want your little ones to have some fun while enjoying their Christmas cake.


Celebrate the Kolkatan in You at Mocambo

And if you want to relive those days, when Christmas meant going out with your parents, watching the Christmas decoration in New Market and Park street with wide eyes and then heading to one of the restaurants of Park Street for a superb dinner, than you can go to Mocambo to get the ultimate flavor of Christmas dinner. From the Green drunken prawns to the devilled crab, or the Meat Lasagne and the Pork Cutlet, Mocambo will serve you the best continental dinner spread and you can enjoy a wonderful time digging into the delights and remembering the good old days with your family or friends.
