New Year Specials from Mio Amore

Eliminating consumer choices can greatly reduce Anxiety for shoppers. Simply put, too many choices increases the amount of time and effort it takes to settle on something. Like many others, I’m too intimately familiar with Mio Amore, and can testify to it’s veracity- every time I’m in Savouries’ Dream, I’m paralyzed by the choices I…

Brunch Italino arrives at the City of Joy

This place has such a wide variety of baked goods that all taste great! I tried a little bit of everything: their VANILLA SPECIAL DRYFRUITS CAKE, RICH PLUM CAKE, MARVEL CAKE, BRUNCH MAWA CAKE. 🍷🍷🍷 Instead of candied fruit, this vanilla fruitcake uses dried fruits including cranberries, cherries, strawberries, and blueberries for a different taste.🦌🎄❄️…

Brunch Italino arrives at the City of Joy

This place has such a wide variety of baked goods that all taste great! I tried a little bit of everything: their VANILLA SPECIAL DRYFRUITS CAKE, RICH PLUM CAKE, MARVEL CAKE, BRUNCH MAWA CAKE. My personal favorite item was the RICH PLUM CAKE. It was so soft and moist with the perfect hint of rum….

Who made the first fruit cake ?

The name “fruitcake” is formed from a combination of the Latin fructus, and French frui or frug. Forget the history ! Love it or hate it, the craze for fruitcakes never goes away. Perhaps, we Bengali are one step ahead with it ! কেকের গন্ধে ও উৎসবের সাজে সেজে উঠেছে শহর !! আর অন্য সব…

Christmas Cakes

কেকের গন্ধে ও উৎসবের সাজে সেজে উঠেছে শহর !! Christmas eve brings everyone together but how can the festive season be complete without a delicious cake?I’ve always loved walking past their counter and glancing to see their lovely collection every time ! It was hard for me to choose what to buy since I wanted…

Just Baked @ Nagerbazar

There’s nothing like a crushed pineapple cake when you’re missing summertime! Cake with a delicious cream cheese frosting? Ssuper moist cake full of pineapple and whipped cream. Let me just say… the cake was beyond what I could imagine, simply simple and yet so beautiful.  The taste — delicious!!! The cake itself looked amazing and didn’t eat…

Mama Mia ! @Nagerbazar

Mama Mia! is the probably the place with one of the most authentic parlour, I’ve had so far recently. With so many different types of Mousses, one visit is not enough!!! The Mousse is not too sweet and not too ‘creative’ which I actually appreciate. These days, t’s hard to find an establishment that isn’t…

Mio Amore restarting operation !

My colleague and I had some time between meetings and had chosen to do some work at the coffee spot a few doors down. As we walked past Mio Amore, we couldn’t help but pop in as the door was open and the delightful smells were almost begging us to come inside! We’re so glad…

Kathleen @Nagerbazar

This is another great spot that my family has been going to since before I was even born lol. Kathleen is famous around Kolkata for their great cakes!  I don’t even know where to start with this cake, but I’ll start with the texture: it’s an extremely light and fluffy cake with a sweet and…

Haldiram’s Prabhuji @ Barabazar

Haldiram’s Prabhuji is one of the famous brand in India as well as across the country. As I was passing through Barabazar, this wasn’t much of a detour (10 mins)!  It’s located near Satya Narayan park to be precise. We were warmly welcomed and certainly spoilt for choice, being somewhat overwhelmed by the selection I…

Mama Mia ! @Baghajatin

I know, I know…I’ve been saying that it is way too hot for chocolate desserts these days, but it turns out that 6th of July was world chocolate day so this is a timely (almost) and a fitting tribute, don’t you think? I ordered this cute little Jar ! You can’t get much simpler than…

Mama Mia @Shyambazar

Like any ice-cream lover I make it a point to try ice-creams at new ice-cream parlors. Mama Mia is a good option if you consider trying low-fat or sugar-free varieties of ice-creams as they have few such options. Like Baskin Robbins, Mama Mia too allows us to taste the flavors before buying. I ordered online…
