This is my first time in Kolkatta and ever since I’ve got here I’ve been craving some hard core Bong food!
My colleague suggested this place as he’s previously been here.
If you have a couple of days in Calcutta, you must have at least one meal here.
We had dinner there today. It was three of us and we ordered quite a few dishes as we wanted to sample almost everything on the menu
We called for Aloo Jinga Posto, Begun Basanti (this is the strangest kind of Brinjal dish I’ve ever had... but strange in a good yummy kind of a way), Boneless Bhapa Hilsa (this is fish and pretty yummy), Dab Chingri (this was yummy prawn in this creamy mustard sauce served inside a coconut shell), fish fry (very simple but yummy nonetheless - served with in house mustard), Jhur Jhure aloo Bhaja, Kachalanka Dhonepata murgi (this was chicken in a mix of spices.. honestly this was the least impressive dish of the day for me), moong mohan (this was a yellow dal.. can be skipped), and we clubbed all of the above with steamed rice (as that’s what our server suggested). I originally wanted to order a lucchi (kind of like a puri) but since the waiter advised against it I ended up not ordering. But I feel that combination would’ve been a better idea.
For dessert we called for Jaggery ice cream. As weird as that sounds, the ice cream was quite yum! You should try!
All of this food and we paid about 4140 INR which is not bad.
The overall decor is quite cute.
Am attaching a few pictures for you to get a better idea.
Enjoy your meal here!
