Amber has been around for decades and offers an old-fashioned family dining experience. A dish which has survived down the ages, always popular amongst the adventurous, is the Mutton Brain Masala. Kids, don’t let the description put you off; this dish is part of the culinary history of Kolkata — a city with truly liberal eating habits. The lamb brain is cooked in masala which results in a rich, tomato gravy while the grated egg on top is exactly what you need for some added texture. Besides, the meat is minced and very tender. The restaurant encourages you to mop up this creamy meat dish with masala kulcha but we think the Mattar Pulao works just as well! And if you want to take the brain-eating experience a notch higher, try the Brain Curry!
