Capsicum@College Street

Ordered home delivery from here today and every one says this is one of the better Chinese they have had in Kolkata recently. I guess this is because its the closest to the Indian-Chinese food that almost grew up with. We were gathered for house party with very few close friends of mine. The food…

Banchharam’s Sweet Shop @ Santoshpur

Order at the counter, find a place to stand, wait for call, grab your food! I was very excited to try this branded sweet shop as it’s something that I dont’ visit often. My friend and I got the Radha Ballavi comes with Alur Dom. An ideal breakfast idea among bengalis breakfast recipes for any…

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….

Haldiram’s Prabhuji @Belur

I wasn’t sure that a place that listed itself as a sweet shop first would really be a good restaurant, and I’m so glad I put that concern aside when my friends and I were looking for a place to have a nice dinner. It was so delicious! Hands down one of my favorite Indian…

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…

Putiram Sweets@College Street

  Amazing sweets and snacks outlet. One of the legendary brand in the city. The sweet dishes are pretty good but the Radha Ballavi (Flat Bread) served with Ghee (Clarified Butter) based Alur Dum is outstanding – perfectly fried non oily Radhaballavi with delicious Alur Dum spiced to perfection. They do not use Red Chilli…

Sharma Snacks, Nagerbazar

Food taste was below average here. No courtesy to talk to their customer nicely. The staff at the counter was rude. They almost make you feel like they are obliging you by serving food.  I called them to take are order, still nobody responded. They kept saying to hold on. They were so busy talking…

Kaligodam@Bara Bazar

Kaligodam started out as a Sweet shop, but now also focuses on savourites items. They have a large variety of deep fried snacks like samosas, Bhujia, Jhaal Mixture etc and sweets like Ghee Boondi, Laddo, Peda etc I love their Mini Samosa. I always have a couple of chutney varieties in the fridge, so we…

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…
