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….

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…

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…

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…

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…

Mama Mia! @New Alipore

Mousse Cake, Blueberry Cheesecake, Icecream, Icecream Cake, Chocolate Mousse and more. For all the chocolate lovers, nothing would be more enticing and delectable than this set of two chocolate mousse…

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।…
