Kolkata is a foodie’s heaven. You get enormous choice in food and the rates do not pinch your pocket. We strongly urge you to have the local food and come back a satisfied traveller. Go on this culinary fare with us.
Luchi – Aloo Dum
Luchi is also called puri in North India. But the luchi you get here is different from everywhere else. It simply melts in your mouth. Have it in one of the old traditional shops.
Doodh Cola – Milk with soda
The combination will sound outrageous, but it works in Kolkata. The way they mix it here, is totally out of the world. You must try it once at least.
Kulfi with real fruit
Kulfi can be found all over India. But the ones you get in Kolkata are totally different. They get their unique taste from real fruit that is used in the recipes, and not canned fruit used elsewhere. We highly recommend the orange and mango kulfi.
Bengali Ghoti Gorom – Peanut mix
This is the ideal snack, which can be eaten on the streets of Kolkata. It is easy on digestion, high on proteins and delicious. You cannot come back without trying this.
This street chaat is very famous among office goers and college students. You will find hawkers selling this all over the city. The taste is unique and it is a filling meal for some.
Fish cutlets and Egg Devil
These are basic cutlets made with minced chicken and fish. They can be bought in little shacks that operate in the evenings. It is a local version of the world famous deviled eggs.
In very simple words, this is deep fried puri that has a lentil stuffing inside it. The Bengalis love it with chana dal or ghugni or a simple aloo sabzi. Have it for breakfast and start your day on a good note.
