Plaite by Bijoli Grill @Ajoy Nagar

I personally a huge fan of such foods which are becoming extinct nowadays, but whenever time permits, I do visit such shops and had my share of these delicacies. Bijoli Grill is the top brand name in organised catering in Kolkata serving for around 50 years. Plaite is comparatively new imitative in retail food sector…

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….

Chowman @Garia

I went to their Garia branch for the first time at a friend’s suggestion that they had one of the best roasted chilli pork  in town. It’s fairly clear that they should know their pork. But the roasted pork was very disappointing. The chuncks was not crispy and the meat was dry and not juicy…

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…

Hamro Momo @ Elgin Road

The struggle is REAL to find some authentic Nepalese food. Boy oh boy!!! This is a HIDDEN GEM. Great prices and even better food. Soooo good! Can’t wait until quarantine is over because Hamro Momo will be one of my preferred stop. I ordered the Pork Momo. It was so delicious and full of flavor….

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…

Tea Junction @New Town – Rosedale Plaza

This is Tea Junction in Rosedale Plaza, where there isn’t as much competition. Prices are a bit higher here and it’s a small place so you won’t really be able to sit long with your drink and hangout. Definitely a more grab and go kind of place. Service was a tad slow for a tea…

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…

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…

Cafe Coffee Day@Naktala

We visited this CCD around 4 pm before lockdown days. I did not remember the day exactly. There were several tables occupied, but they have lots of tables available. They have a great selection of Asian teas, and desserts. Their oatmeal cookies are REALLY good and they are the perfect flavor and texture. They are…

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…
