‘Red Xpress’ – family restaurant with a touch of nostalgia!

There are eating joints which get hooked onto your memory even if you are not very conscious about that fact. I never realized (until last Saturday) that somehow or the other Red Xpress (located at Sector-V, Saltlake) has got a little special place in my head (or heart, maybe) for some not-so-well-defined reasons stitched to…

Top 4 food kiosks – in Quest Mall (Kolkata) food court!

Mall food courts are often a savior when you want to take a quick break in between those shopping sessions, maybe after a movie or to catch up with your group of friends. When you are on a move these food kiosks come very handy and can save your day, and your time of course….

Adda, Nostalgia, Fish Orley and Bijoligrill!

There are few good things still left in the life of Bengali mango-people that remind them of their childhood or adolescent days. With the rapid number of increasing eating joints and diminishing industries, values and safety quotient in the city, poor people (like me) tend to cling on to old memories that still make them…

Cook-out session with Masterchef Ranveer Brar, at Afra Tafri!

Celebrity Chef Ranveer Brar was recently in Kolkata for an amazing afternoon cook-out session at Afra Tafri, the only Transitional Gastro Brew Pub of the city!

Special Raksha Bandhan gift hampers from ‘Velvetiine’

The sweetest part of India gets diabetic when it comes to festivals and celebrations! At times the refrigerator is not enough to store all the packets of sweets and chocolates you receive on such festive days! Bengalis love their mishti or sweet dish after every meal. That can be in any format, at least that…

‘Barcelos’ makes new Food & Sangria additions to their menu!

This was the second time I was attending a bloggers meet at Barcelos (Kolkata) over food tasting session. I missed the sizzler launch tasting session few months back for some unavoidable reasons. But this time it was tad different from the previous food tasting session which I attended, since here we dealt with Sangrias, something…

D-Talks Adda – Saltlake gets a quaint sports-themed cafe!

Eating out these days often seems pretty scary, especially for food bloggers like me. Well, you can hopefully guess the reason. The ingredients that the restaurants are using can cause serious damage to your body in the long term. The momentary explosion of joy for your taste buds doesn’t always guarantee a nutrient-rich healthy meal….

Red Panda – tales of an oriental hidden gem!

The city dwellers have lately developed affection for South East Asian cuisine and have started to fit in Thai or Burmese food beside the Chinese delicacies which has been ruling the Kolkata culinary scenarios for decades now. You will find several new eateries or grandiose restaurants coming up in the city serving these soul-pleasing Asian…

Momo I Am – Story of a Hidden Gem!

Frankly speaking, few years back I was first introduced to Momo I Am through their unique wall art and graffiti like many other ‘bhaat machh-er jhol’ eating Bengali. That was pretty new in Kolkata then! I was introduced to their food maybe a year later after that artsy discovery! And yes, I was blown away!…

‘Velvetiine’ brings in Freakshakes and Sundaes!

I have heard someone saying that – calories of freakshakes are directly proportional to the happiness quotient achieved on consuming them. Freakshake or an extreme milkshake is rather a phenomenon that first took place in Canberra (Australia) and it was a rage there. The good news for everyone with a sweet tooth or the ones…
