Golf Course, Tea Garden and a Tea Lounge in Kolkata – that’s ‘Yule Tea Lounge’ for you!

Often when you feel like running away from this mundane filth and dirt all around, you realize that you have actually got nowhere to go in this crowded city that’s filled with opportunities and demons, both at the same time! Kolkata is no exception, though it’s called the ‘city of joy’ but there are elements,…

‘Cafeccino’ – The perfect place in Quest Mall for some coffee and adda!

Sometimes, it’s a good book and a cup of coffee that can help you get back again to your daily rat race. Of course these pieces of isolation and solace are very rare to acquire these days from any living object roaming around unless it an infant or your pet dog! So, I would like…

MUD Café – place that serves mutton phuchka and plays only Rabindra sangeet!

Kolkata is now filled with cafés and pubs, to an old hag like me most of the places look pretty similar after an hour or so! At least from the core, I can’t label any of these places as a ‘Bangali Café’, well that’s a rare species, right? I mean who on earth needs some…

Durga Puja special menu at ‘The Bhoj Company’!!

In Kolkata, people tend to eat out more during the Durga Pujas than anytime else in the year. And a good Bengali lunch buffet is something which every city dweller eagerly waits for. Most of the places promises big, but the mad rush of Pujas truly tests their strengths and many pointers and loopholes come…

‘Red Xpress’ – family restaurant with a touch of nostalgia!

There are eating joints which get hooked onto your memory even if you are not very conscious about that fact. I never realized (until last Saturday) that somehow or the other Red Xpress (located at Sector-V, Saltlake) has got a little special place in my head (or heart, maybe) for some not-so-well-defined reasons stitched to…

JackFruit365™ : The amazing green jackfruit flour – let food be thy medicine!

With every passing day, what we are consuming is becoming a concerning subject to deal with. The ingredients that we are using to cook our daily meals can cause serious damage to our body in the long run. The momentary explosion of joy for our taste buds doesn’t always guarantee a nutrient-rich healthy meal. So…

‘Bombay Brasserie’ – all geared up with its brand new avatar & new food/drinks menu

For me, food is more than what it seems to be. The culture which is behind that food that helps us to trace back the origin of that dish constantly keeps intriguing me! So, if you know the social background or the culture lying behind a food, you can really go under the skin of…

Special Raksha Bandhan gift hampers from ‘Velvetiine’

The sweetest part of India gets diabetic when it comes to festivals and celebrations! At times the refrigerator is not enough to store all the packets of sweets and chocolates you receive on such festive days! Bengalis love their mishti or sweet dish after every meal. That can be in any format, at least that…

D-Talks Adda – Saltlake gets a quaint sports-themed cafe!

Eating out these days often seems pretty scary, especially for food bloggers like me. Well, you can hopefully guess the reason. The ingredients that the restaurants are using can cause serious damage to your body in the long term. The momentary explosion of joy for your taste buds doesn’t always guarantee a nutrient-rich healthy meal.…

Momo I Am – Story of a Hidden Gem!

Frankly speaking, few years back I was first introduced to Momo I Am through their unique wall art and graffiti like many other ‘bhaat machh-er jhol’ eating Bengali. That was pretty new in Kolkata then! I was introduced to their food maybe a year later after that artsy discovery! And yes, I was blown away!…

‘The Tea Trove’ – Bloggers Meet at the tea lover’s heaven!

This bloggers meet at Tea Trove, Acropolis Mall was long pending and that’s primarily because of me, since I had some personal issues going on in the meanwhile. I am very thankful to Shruti for bearing with me all these while, and of course thankful for this warm invitation. I had attended a tasting session…

Soul Cafe – A perfect adda-joint near Quest Mall!

The city is changing rapidly and so is its habits and lifestyle mantra. These days people demand more from an eatery, in fact they demand more from everything in their lives. Places with multiple facilities are coming more into focus and getting people more interested. People these days love hanging out in malls and cafes…
