The Deliciousness of Kolkata From the Bottom Level

Kolkata has rightly been called the ‘City of Joy’ by French author Dominique Lapierre. The people of Kolkata know how to enjoy a festival- be it Durga puja, Christmas,  Chatpuja or  New year celebration.

Kolkata is different from other places just because of it’s food,  it’s heritage,  it’s people and many more. You are walking through a narrow lane where no attractions are there,  somehow a big palace appears,  it’s wondering. 

People called Paris The city of Love but for me Kolkata is The city of Passion. The people over here despite of all religion in their leisure times they just want to enjoy that moment with others.

If you want to visit Kolkata, its my opinion that you will gonna spend your most beautiful moments of life over here.

I guess beside the Howrah bridge,  Victoria memorial,  The statue of Netaji subhas at Shyambazar,  Maidan,  u know about the famous street foods of Kolkata–

1. Golbari

Originally named New Punjabi Restaurant, the eatery is popularly called Golbari because of the semi-circular facade of the building – started not by a Bengali but by a Punjabi, Kishan Arora’s father Ratan Arora, 92 years ago.

Now let’s come to the taste, the pieces of meat floating in oily red gravy, it’s just astonishing and delicious. For food lovers it’s a kind of dream to have this ‘kosha mangsho’. They served it with two paratha and salad.
