BH CORRESPONDENT, Kolkata: Aminia, a legacy amongst the Mughlai joints, is turning 91 this year in Kolkata and giving the City of Joy a new delivery and take away outlet on EM Bypass. This remarkable journey of 91 years started with a small outlet at Zakaria Street, serving the famous Mughlai/Awadhi cuisine. Later, on the day of independence in 1947, they opened their first outlet in the Futani chamber in the New Market area. But their journey wasn’t confined only to that place. They started expanding their business across West Bengal and presently have a total of nine outlets.
2020 will be defined as a historical year for the F&B and many other industries with the world being struck by COVID-19 pandemic. All the industries have witnessed a restructured business model where safety and sanitization are the utmost priority. After a long term hiatus, Aminia has seen a revival in the business since the lockdown eased. However, the new normal is very much different than the old one. Balancing social distancing and food quality has been quite an uphill battle for the F&B industry, but it couldn’t stop our favorite biryani joint to add a new feather to their hat.
