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…

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…

KFC @ Uttarpara

First off, I was watching the Food Network the other day (always a bad idea, it just leads to cravings) and they were airing a segment on fried chicken. Within seconds my mouth begins to water and my stomach is calling out for fried chicken. KFC has opened a new outlet at Uttarpara. This KFC…

Narayan Snacks @ Kalindi

Stopped in for a quick to-go late breakfast. Situated precisely in a corner location of Kalindi Stoppage. You can’t overlook it ! Typical street snacks store.  With its limited menu, hole-in-the-wall kind of spot, it still serves great food. Well there is not much of an ambience to the place.Neither did I cared for one….

Kurry Patta @ Camac Street

First time to this place last weekend and was really superb. Just when I was beginning to feel that I had lost my craving for South Indian dishes, I tried this and faith is restored. This is certainly a really good Dosa place, but no frills at all. You get seated first,  order and they…

Zam Zam@Kiddepore

Love Zam Zam ! This delicious hole-in-the-wall is a Kidderpore treasure. The restaurant is not fancy at all, and sometimes the service is a bit slow, but it’s worth it. Food is delicious, portions generous, price a steal! Been a handful of times and never a disappointment. When I have to visit nearby for my…
