FOOD TRAIL IN KOLKATA
My dear friends, my blog visitors, from all around the globe, have been requesting me to review authentic Bengali cuisine, in Kolkata. Bowing to their great demand, I left for FOOD TRAIL IN KOLKATA, from 9th to 11th Jan. 2016.. Here is the review of various restaurants:
Authentic Bengali Food
At Hindustan Road, Kolkata
Excellent Bengali Food
I have been waiting for a long time to visit this legendry place, since I had heard a lot about it. Since we wanted to try variety, we opted for both veg. & non veg. meal. It was a traditional and authentic bengaly food The first dish which is very common in any Bengali home Karola-Alu Bhaja (Bitter Gaud & Potato fry) which goes well with plain rice. The next was Sukto (mixed veg bengali style) which is cooked in mustard and poppy seeds curry and contains drum-sticks & bitter gaud in addition to other vegetables. Next was Dhokar Dalna, a curry made with Bengal-Gram Dhal Pattie, Next was Dal & Alu bhaja. For non-veg we ordered Dab-Chingri, Whole Prawns, cooked in mustard, poppy seeds & tender coconut water based gravy, one of their signature dishes. Next was Ilish Bhape, Hilsha fish steam-cooked again in mustard & poppy seed paste, with mustard oil & green chilies. Another signature dish. For the desert, we had Chatni-Papor bhaja & Sweet Curd.
Overall a complete bengali meal.
It is not very expensive too. It offers a great value for money. I definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone visiting West Bengal for first time.
