You might also find a visit to the nearby Ma Konyam (? Chinese Durga) Temple interesting.
Boss spare me the morning 7 am eats. Ill be either snoozing or running on the treadmill at the hotel gym

When? How about Sat (27th) evening?

Where? Since Gogi's partial towards Tangra, let's go to a Tangra joint. Quite a few options there.
Basic Requirements:
1. Approach road should be in decent shape
2. Lots of parking space
3. Decent food + booze

I think the place where we had our first Cal meet would qualify (don't remember the name), but other suggestions are welcome.

Let's get some suggestions and confirmations in.

Confirmed:
1. V-16
2. Razor
No No buddy, im not partial to tengra at all. I was only trying to remember where id been ages back when i was around 7 or 8 maybe 9 when i came last. What i really want to eat is the Nizam Rolls (if that tastes like it used to) Im absolutely game for anything. WOuld also love to go to the Calcutta coffee house to get a feel of that place. Maybe ill do so one evening. Guys you know best. Ill be staying at Sonar Bangla. You guys know my no? I've pm'd it.

May be someday.....! (Sigh)

Just drive down a couple of yards from Beijing (assuming you are coming from Topsia crossing on EMBP connector) . You will see the Hot Wok on the right (has a enclosure/courtyard with covered parking). However dont ask the locals, they will direct you to some other restaurant they get commision from.

Someone please pick him up from the hotel. So what if you have to come back again towards Tangra. Seven also sounds great. Few drinks before good food is great for health.

Gogi, have atleast one in my name.
