Someone like me is finding ways to pass the time by streaming web series,movies, classic sports and off course ordering food online. Want to feed your brain with something other than constant Corona…

Fillers, Southern Avenue

My first experience here wasn’t bad. It was nothing exciting but food was good. There were about 3 or 4 groups outside the cafe either waiting for their order or enjoying food in stand alone table. Fillers Restaurant which is located near Vivekananda Park, Southern Avenue, Kolkata is a very old and famous plate to…

Biryani at Oye Balle Balle Dhaba

This was my 2nd time I ordered online for our food from Oye Balle Balle Dhaba. It was almost 11 pm at night. Did not had much option from my location then. Quick delivery with proper packaging. However, I was shocked to see the container.  It was not at value for money. Taste and quality…

মিত্র ক্যাফে

  কাজ সেরে বাড়ি ফিরছিলাম ! উবের থেকে নামতেই নাকে এল মনমাতানো চেনা চেনা গন্ধ। আমি তখন মিত্র ক্যাফের সামনে গাড়ি থেকে নামছিলাম ! লোভে পাপ, আর পাপে মৃত্যু। কিন্তু লোভ সামলাতে না পেরে ঢুকেই পড়লাম ! শতবর্ষ পুরানো মিত্র ক্যাফের ঐতিহ্য আজও অটুট। ১৯১০ সালে শ্রী সুশীল রায়ের হাত ধরে এই ক্যাফের পথ কলা…

Barishhhh – the experimental take on modern Indian cuisines

The newest from the house of Speciality Group of Restaurants !! ‘kind of bar, sort of cafe’ that’ll leave you mesmerised! Wow this place is amazing! I ate until I felt like I could explode. It was a shame I couldn’t even finish everything that was brought to the table. The service was amazing! The waitress was…

Dumpling Momo – Jadavpur

“It’s just that originally, momos are of Tibetan origin while dumplings are of Chinese origin.” – Googles answer to the difference between dumplings and momos. Honestly, the name is what made me want to try it. Dumpling Momo had a good backing online, so here we go. The restaurant has a nice warm environment. Great…

Hungerpangs, Saltlake

We drive past this place every day but have never been inside. But we decided to go check them out yesterday for lunch. This is just a hole in the wall nothing much to see. Super meh. The food is very edible; the service exists. Folks are raving about the fries, but I’m here to…

Hing Kachori

Kachoris are famous all over India and an all time favorite with Bengalis. There are many varieties of kachori. One of them is Hing kachori. If u are in new market area u can definitely try this place and have some smoking hot Hing Kachori ! Shree Krishna Mistanna Bhandar, located opposite regal cinema near…

9 players at Kolkata International Airport

My girl friend made us go to the airport way too early so we had to blow some time away before we could even check our bags. I had a two hour delay so I rolled the dice on. This place is pre-security.  I ordered some peanut masala along with 2 pints of Budweiser ….

Sharma Sweets – Tollygunge

  The whole city is aware of this place. Best place to have some quick snacks in Kolkata.  Whether you go early morning at 9 or late night the place is always crowded. Though its a normal place to have tea and snacks but the quality of food is like no one can ever doubt…

Lucknowee – the flavour of Nawab in Kolkata

This review is LONG overdue! Awadhi food was served to royals. Nawabs saw cooking as a form of art, so dishes were carefully presented in beautiful, luxurious ways. This restaurant honors that tradition. Awadh’s interior is gorgeous, the service is incredible, and its flavors are thoughtful and complex. These are the restaurants you want in…

Mugs & Shots

You know those businesses that you’ve been to time and time again and you’re 110% certain that you -must- have written a review and updated it a handful of times, but in reality, that never happened? Apparently Mugs & Shots falls into that bucket for me. It was a beautiful May day in Kolkata with…
