Taking place on the first Sunday of August every year, Friendship Day is dedicated to honouring those people in your life who have always got your back. Someone has rightly said ‘Friends are family you choose!’, from partaking in our little joys, miseries, and failures, friends are a crucial part of all our journeys good or bad. As we all know food brings people closer, what better way than to celebrate the bond with delicious food? With less than a day left for International Friendship Day, our guide to place an order for your friends as a gift of love will come handy. What makes these ventures reliable is the fact that they are driven by some of the best home-chefs and bakers in Guwahati who assure quality with taste.
Bijoya’s Food Bay
Bijoya’s Food Bay by Bijoya Kalita Borah came to life in the midst of the pandemic with an aim to deliver fine quality home-like food to those craving for a variety – from Continental to Pan Asian to North Indian to ethnic Assamese. The dishes are prepared at her personal home kitchen amid stringent hygienic conditions, which is then hand-packed and delivered at the doorstep. Some of her best sellers include Chicken Lattice Pie, Fish in Bamboo Shoot, Chicken Biryani with Raita, Paneer Butter Masala, Fish in Lemon Butter Sauce, Grilled Chicken with Veggies, and Herb Rice. Bijoya is an equally good baker too. We love her Cinnamon Bread Pudding, Assorted Doughnuts, Choco Rum Cake, and Whole-wheat jaggery cake with nuts.
