The Cult located in Globsyn Building, Salt Lake, is all set to open its doors to the city this week. Co-owned by Sanjay Yadav and Manoj Rathi, The Cult is from the same house as the popular Bikers Cafe on Elgin Road. With cowboy-inspired displays at every corner and aesthetic neon signs against the background of warm earthy tones, The Cult is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
In accordance with their wellness concept, the menu has five categories: vegan, vegetarian, wellness, bar comfort food and experiential food, all of which they like to term as ‘self-healing’ food. Their cocktails and mocktails deserve a special mention, owing to their uniqueness of being based on fruits and vegetables, with no sugar or processed syrups.
However, the health factor in no way will make you compromise on taste, as they have a variety of mouth-watering dishes, serving all meals as well as brunch.
The Telegraph gets you a first look.
