Chef’s Log 37: Keventer-rific

Greetings, faithful followers. I have a riddle for you. What’s really high, really cold and filled with pork? Extra points to those of you who said ‘a stoner eating bacon in winter’ (fascinating creatures, these stoners). But I speak of Darjeeling! That’s right; I simply could not miss the opportunity to visit that lovely hill station that’s reasonably close to Calcutta (Though not as close as one might presume). The weather is invigorating; the atmosphere, soothing; the view, magnificent; and the pork, out of this world (And I am well qualified to use that expression). The first place I hastened to was ‘Keventer’s’, a charming little restaurant renowned for their protein-packed breakfast. I ordered mine with scrambled eggs. It came accompanied by a luxurious helping of sausages and bacon. The scrambled eggs were rather ordinary- nothing special I’d say. The meat on the other hand, was simply spectacular. Granted, the bacon contained a lot more fat than I would normally prefer; it was delicious nonetheless. After all, bacon is bacon. And the sausages had a delightfully unique flavour- a blend of spices that some might consider odd, but one which I thoroughly enjoyed. Those sausages in which the meat had popped through the skin were particularly crunchy and delectable. All in all, it was a stupendous meal, stunning in both its quantity and its quality. It’s not one for the faint-hearted (I mean this literally. If you have cholesterol or other heart problems, do NOT eat this meal). The ham and the salami at Keventer’s are also delicious options, and they serve some excellent sandwiches as well. For all you meat lovers out there, this is one place you simply cannot miss.
