Kitchen Cornucopia by Cloves Catering
Kitchen Cornucopia takes great pride in the back-to-basics approach of making a dish. They make their items in small quantities and don’t employ a preservation process for their ingredients. All their raw materials are fresh with special emphasis on attention to detail and hygiene. Kitchen Cornucopia is best known for making biriyanis, sea-food and spicy non-vegetarian options, and their variety looks mouth-watering. We have our eyes on their grand Shahi Mutton Dum Biriyani. Do note that this kitchen does not take orders on Mondays.
