It was my second trip to Kolkata (the 1st was very brief!) and shopping was on my mind this time. I actually wanted to try out the street food while I shopped at Gariahat but as I was with my colleagues, we decided to sit at 1 location and eat first.
After a lot of confusion over where to eat, we tried out Bhojohari Manna. Fish is not my fav especially bcoz I find it too tediuos to remove the bones and eat. I ordered some chicken cutlets coz thats the only thing I could understand and was without bones. Others ordered prawns, fish & then came to the boneless stuff....thats when I took off!
One thing I must appreciate is that these guys have a lot of variety and the taste is just too awesome. I tried "shorshe -elish" - the best out of all that we ordered! We kept ordering fried prawns (coated with batter) + fish in a similar coating...can't remember the name.
Then came the turn of sweets...Mishti doi was the most fav!!! We did try Kheer-kadam, Roshogulla, etc....all amazing! When u are in Kolkata, u can eat sweets anywhere & the taste is just the same...awesome!
For those who are new to Kolkata, Gariahat in the South is recommended for shopping - avoid Sundays as you would find a lot of shops closed. And this restaurant is close-by, so a must visit. If you dont understand from the name what kind of a dish it is, just ask the waiter. Tell him exactly what you want and they will suggest accordingly. Also, please note a few dishes mentioned on the menu may be sweet, so if you dont like your main course to be sweet, please let them know. Bengali's have a hint of sweetness in their food as well.
A must try while in Kolkata! Also, this place is crowded, there may be some waiting time before you get your table.
