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…

‘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.

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.

Banana Leaf – Serving authentic South Indian food in Kolkata for years!

It may differ for many, but for me having authentic South Indian food in Kolkata means heading straight to Banana Leaf! It’s the no-frill holy institution of South Indian food lovers serving amazing food and nothing else. Its Lake Market outlet is the oldest and that outlet earned immense goodwill over the years and people…

The amazing ‘Coastal Macha’ – squids, meats and more!

Ever since I returned to Kolkata from the mesmerizing Kerala trip, I have been searching for places who can somehow manage to dish out something remotely close to what I have tasted back there while floating on the backwaters!! Those typical flavors were still haunting me and I was going on with my search for…

‘The Noodle Story’ – Tales authored by my chopsticks!

Mall food courts are mostly sad, and you can’t really complain since they are serving you stuffs at quite reasonable prices. So they kinda strike a balance between street side unhygienic food and chef’s ultimate masterpieces; and try to get you something having elements from both the worlds. Ultimately they deliver something which won’t leave…
