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…

Sharma Sweets, Bara Bazar

This place serves one of the best Club Kachori in Kolkata and it is located near Barabazar. It is crowded with people most of the times. Visited mostly by Non Bengali crowd, who are usually locals and love these kind of food. Quick, tasty Indian vegetarian food, in simple surroundings. The service was quick, and…

Chai Break @Kankurgachi

We loved that this place was very near to the Kankurgachi Pantaloons.  It was the perfect place to stop and rest after wandering the Pantaloons for hours.  It was a short walk away.  I would allocate about an hour of time if you plan to do their high tea experience. (Strictly for Vegetarian though) Initially,…

দেখানোর জন্য ছবিই সম্বল। কিন্তু বেশি খেলে অম্বল।

দেখানোর জন্য ছবিই সম্বল। কিন্তু বেশি খেলে অম্বল। বাঙালির জলখাবারের থালায় চির বিরাজমান লুচি-আলুরদম। কিন্তু আমি এত তাড়াতড়ি ঘুম থেকে উঠি যে জলখাবার টা আমার জীবনে সেই ভাবে জায়গা পায়না। গরম গরম ফুলকো লুচি আর সঙ্গে আলুর দম যে কারও জিভে জল নিয়ে আসার জন্য যথেষ্ট। একবেলার খাবার হিসেবে লুচি আলুর দম বাঙালির প্রিয় খাবার।…

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…

NIC – Natural Ice Creams @Jadavpur

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve been slowly rediscovering certain things that I used to be able to eat without impunity, while taking care not to overdo it. One of those things is aforementioned things is ice cream. I’ve heard about this place not for a very long time ago.  It’s  reputation precedes it, and that…

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…
