Friends find out the new restaurant of Chef Harpal Singh Sokhi's "The Funjabi Tadka" at Southern Avenue.

Suggestion: Don't forget to test the variety of Lassi.

Address: 19A, Southern Avenue, West Bengal 700029.

You can find the menu on http://www.zomato.com/kolkata/the-fu...outhern-avenue.

Hi people,

Is there a good place to eat within a 2-3 km radius of Hiland Park? Just a peaceful place, with good food.

Shuvo ratri....

I recently visited Kolkatta for the first time and truely its a foodie's paradise city especially for non-veg.

I will recommend

1. Shiraz/Badshah for the rolls - damn good
2. India House - for biryani and kebabs

Guys help me out on this one. I am in a weird dilemma. I am taking out 'someone' for lunch next week. The occasion is "my birthday" and I want this one to be special. Food(non-veg) has to be really good. There are so many options in Kolkata but I want to go somewhere special. Hope you guys understand. The place need not be absurdly expensive; it can be anywhere.

Only 2 criteria:
1) Good food
2) Something different and special

Sorry, I saw this a bit too late.
So where did you ultimately go?

Adding Chinoiserie, Amigos, The Tasting Room and Pan Asian to my recommended places to eat in Calcutta.

How did i miss this thread for so long!!!!

Well let me add one. For snacks one can try out Afraa Deli at City center Salt lake. There are 3 Afraa's. One is at the top floor for proper lunch and dinner (Afraa lounge), one is a cake shop (Afraa Deli & creperie) in the ground floor and the 3rd one Afraa Deli is for snacks and that's opposite to Sony world located beside the parking area. For cakes 'Flury's' is best till now or one can even try 'The cakes' in salt lake and for lunch and dinner you have better option's than the expensive Afraa Lounge. But for snacks one can really try out Afraa Deli located opposite to Sony world. There macaroni or fish fry or the chilly prawn preparations are really tasteful. On the flip side its a bit pricey. Here is the Zomato link. http://www.zomato.com/kolkata/afraa-deli-salt-lake

A quick search on TBHP doesn't show any results, however members individually might be aware of this.

The Blue Poppy
Gorkha Bhawan, Sector 1, Near City Centre, Salt Lake, Kolkata

Very pocket friendly, and quite accessible for the IT bunch at Sec V. Doesn't have a bar. Specialises in Tibetan dishes, i.e. momo, thukpa, shapta etc.
Serving time is pretty quick.

Their pork shapta is to die for while eating. However, the rich spices will let you know they were present a few hours later/next morning

Thought I'll add a couple of entries into this thread:

1. Baati Chokha, Purnadas road near triangular park. It's next to the Wheels car accessory shop. Pure veg. You get absolutely awesome Litti Chokha there. A taste of Banaras as they call it. Ambience is great with the lanterns and the village style seating. Place can get crowded on weekends so it's better to book. Also, it's not a very big restaurant. Definitely worth it for Litti chokha, khichdi, papad churra.

2. Mission Cafe has a small franchise near Golpark. For people who can't go to the main one at Ganesh chandra Ave. This is a slightly upmarket less crowded option. They have awesome Kulcha Chole there.

Kolkata drive enthusiasts may be tired of driving to Azadhind, Hindusthan hotel on Nh2 or Sher E Punjab on Nh6.

On 15th December a new food joint was opened just beside Sher e Punjab on Nh6 Kolaghat. Express food plaza. Its a Multi cuisine restaurant with proper separate bar , nice ambiance , clean and modern wash rooms with a parking space of approximately 30 cars.

Hello.

Bijoya best wishes to all fellow brethren.

The Blue poppy has been shifted to first floor of sikkim house, adjacent to charnook city or opposuite stadel, sec-3, salt lake. Quality seems to have gone down a lil, while spices and oil has gone up . very competitive prices though.

Default What are some iconic restaurants/eateries in your city?

Hello members, I guess in addition to the love of automobiles, food is the most common denominator whose passion can unite us all.

Thus, I'm initiating this thread to capture the various restaurants, which might be missed otherwise when someone is visiting a city or town, or might not be listed in the online recommendations.

In this thread, instead of the new and bubbly eateries, I'm sticking to those which have something the new ones may not - heritage and memories.

Iconic Restaurants of Kolkata :

1. Bar-B-Q = In the heart of Park Street, this is an age old restaurant, serving patrons since multiple decades. It's the first place I take my guests if they want to eat out. Serves North-Indian & Chinese fares. Most popularly known for Dal Makhani and Drums of Heaven.

2. Jai Hind Dhaba = Started at the ground floor as a tiny shop, it is now a dedicated building at Sarat Bose Road. It's where South Kolkata eats after "that Saturday party". It's been the go-to eatery for our friend group since the beginning. Cheap tasty food & limitless banter makes this a perfect spot for the young and old. The Aloo Do Pyaza and Chicken Tikka Masala, served with Rumali or Tandoori Roti is enforced upon newbies with love.

3. Arsalan = Comparatively newer, but has gained a reputation both amongst Non-Veggies and Veggies like me. The multiple types of Dum Biryani served and Arsalan Special Kebab (wrapped in cheese), are the ones most sort after.
