Manna Curry's executive chef is from the Bengal region and his wife is Taiwanese. Together, they intend to introduce authentic, delicious Bengali flavors to Taiwan using seasonal ingredients paired with special Bengali spices. Curries are fresh-made every morning and the spiciness can be adjusted according to guests' desires, while salads accompanying set meals are made to order, ensuring maximum freshness. The yogurt is also handmade with a traditional recipe from the chef's ancestors and has a special tart flavor, while the milk tea is fresh-boiled to order with tea leaves from Bengal. --By Chole Huang, translated by S.
