10 Places in Kolkata offering the best Bengali Cuisine


The City of Joy has its own blend of happiness distribution: from the cobbled streets of Shyambazar, to the bustling markets at Esplanade, to the upmarket tech-hub that is Rajarhat, to the Red Road dissecting the Maidan. It is the city of the bell-rings of the Kalighat Temple to the azaan of Nakhoda Masjid, to the Sunday Mass at St. Paul’s Cathedral. It is the city of the neon hoardings of Quest and the quiet breeze of Rabindra Sarobar. It echoes with the cry of the derby at Salt Lake Stadium, and walks with quiet anticipation along the film-city streets of Tollygunge. Kolkata is a city like no other, beautiful and majestic, yet humble and serene.

What really tops off the joy of this City is its food, the ultimate consumption to ensure happiness; the drug that really sets a million tripping in salivating fantasy: as the plates and cups and dishes all melt together to form the capsule that satiates not just hunger, but emotion.

Bengali Cuisine is a favourite of many people across the world, not just the natives who have it on a regular basis, but also to the travelling food fetishist;

Bengali food has everything: sweet for the sweet of tooth, sour for the pickle-lover, and spice for the teary-eyed enthusiast. It doesn’t just end there. Bengali Cuisine has a surprise in every serving, a niche of gastronomic science that offers a different taste every time you tend to try something out.

Variety is said to be the spice of life. It doesn’t get any spicier than this.
