Atithi Celebrates 2 Years

Chef Harbinder Singh (L) & Chef Roy Abhishek (R-chef/owner)

On Monday February 7, I attended the 2nd Anniversary Multi-Course Bengali dinner hosted by Atithi Indian Restaurant in Kitsilano. They invited some media friends to a 7 course tasting menu to celebrate their anniversary.

Chef Roy Abhishek welcomed everyone and described the Bengali meal we were about to enjoy. He described the ingredients and provided origins of the spices and vegetables. Each dish was unique and delicious, the flavours weren’t anything we have been accustomed to in this area.
