Jhaale jhole ombole- Kolkata

You said spicy delicacies, I heard Kolkata

Kolkata – the city of joy not only has a rich cultural heritage but also is renowned worldwide for the plethora of food items. The array of delectable include not only the “rosogollas” and “mishti doi” but “luchi, kosha mangsho”, “tetuler achaar”, “jhaal fuchka”, “chingri maacher malaikari”, “nolen gurer payesh”, “shutki maacch”, “chicken kebab”, “chicken dakbungalow”, “mochar chop” and the list can continue for pages.

Each food has a separate flavour associated; each food tickles different parts of the taste buds. You’ll hardly find a true Bengali who doesn’t enjoy their food! There’s food literally for everyone and every time of the year and as per your mood. Craving something super spicy? Have “muri ghonto”, craving something super sweet? Why not have some “rabri” from the local sweet shop? Tangy is your all time favourite? Grab a sinful serving of “kuler achar” from the road side vendor! Salty? “Aloor chop”.

Apart from the super hot (and a little too spicy) home-made food, which has been running down every Bengali family since time immemorial, you’ve the street foods as well. From Kolkata special chicken/mutton/egg roll, to momos with the extra hot sauces and steaming bowl of soup (with shreds of chicken) to the Bengali version of mixed Hakka/gravy chowmein (with prawns, chicken, egg & vegetables). Once you come to this land of food and immerse yourself in the food pool, you’ll come back again and again, just to savour the delicacies!

What is even more attracting is the fact that all these food(s) come at extremely pocket friendly prices.  For all the food lovers out there, if you haven’t really had the opportunity to visit this place yet, pack your bags and reach this heaven, if you don’t, you’ll surely miss out on the best cuisine in the entire world (mark our words when we say that), and being a food lover you surely won’t like to regret later, right?

Itinerary

Day 1 Arrive in Kolkata, India

Day 1 would be mostly about exploring a few neighbourhoods of Kolkata, experiencing authentic Bangali food. For lunch, the cab would take the clients to 6-Ballygunge Place.6-Ballygunge place is renowned for their Daab Chingri, Luchi, Fried fish, Mutton curry and Chingri Malai curry.

After a sumptuous meal, we would head towards BITM (Birla Industrial and Technological Musuem) . This is an overwhelming museum especially for those with a knack towards science. There are quite a lot of things displaying the power of science, including the Children’s gallery. The next destination will be “Birla Mandir”. This is a very famous temple in Kolkata. There are three temples inside its premises and bears resemblance to the Lingaraj Temple in Bhubhaneshwar.

The trip for day 1 would end here and dinner would be served in the warmth of our accommodation.

Day 2Food and shopping, the necessities of life

For breakfast the next morning we will set out to experience Tiretti Bazar. This bazaar is a little offbeat but is gradually gaining popularity for the amazing Chinese cuisine. From “lice balls” to aromatic “fish ball soup” to “Uncle & Aunty”’s baos, the choice is wide.

After the early morning tummy filling, we would explore the Northern Part of the city. North Kolkata is famous for the large houses, the several silent alleys. The first stop point would be College Street. College Street has a separate fan base altogether. This is probably the busiest part of the city. There are books and books and more books everywhere you cast a look. There one will get hold of almost any book under the sun, you just need to name it. If you’re gifted with amazing bargaining skills, you can get excellent second-hand books at throwaway prices. From Presidency University to Calcutta University to the very special Paramount Cold Drinks & Syrups to the most nostalgic Indian Coffee house, you’ll be mesmerized. Have a glass of refreshing “Daab Sherbet” from Paramount and also encouraged to have sweet coffee and chicken kabiraji from the ever crowded and chaotic Indian Coffee House.

Head back to the accommodation, to spend time at leisure till lunch. For lunch we’ll be headed towards Park Street. Lunch would be done at the Barbeque Nation and the buffet option would be chosen.

After the meal, we would go about exploring the New Market Area. New Market is quite a lively place with a lot of roadside stalls selling everything from clothes to paintings to scarves to stuffed toys. From here you would go to Simpark mall for shopping at extremely low budgets. They sell imported products at amazing prices.

New market has a lot of snack shops also. So for the evening snacks, we would order at a road side stall.

Dinner would be served at Scoop restaurant. They make some really healthy food. They’ve Chinese/continental food and some amazing English desserts as well. We would end the day in a sweet note.

Day 3Quest for Spirituality and Peacefulness

The third day would be entirely devoted to sight seeing. The first destination would be Kalighat. After offering some prayers we would have our breakfast of “kochuri alur dom and jilipi” from Maharaja restaurant. The next stop would be at the Victoria Memorial. This place requires no introduction because of its world wide fame.

Lunch would be done at Bhajahari Manna where we would gorge on some savoury Bengali dishes. Post lunch, we would go to visit Prinsep Ghaat. The place is really a treat to the eyes. The place looks more gorgeous during sunset. The cool breeze, the beautiful landscape, the beautiful Howrah bridge and boating would create a divine ambience.

On the way to the accommodation, if somebody is interested, we might as well go to Trincas Bar to end the awesome day on a high note. Otherwise we can go to Peter Cat for their Chello Kebabs as dinner.

Day 4History and Fun

The second last day of travel would also involve some sight-seeing and a lot of food to complement the travel.

We would first go to the Indian Musuem and spend around 2 hours there, 2 hours witnessing and enjoying ancient Indian and world history. The next stop would be Science City where we would not only see the museum but also have a picnic. There are quite a few rides for children and adults alike. The most attracting being the ropeway, especially for children.

For lunch we would go to Rang De Basanti Dhaba for thoroughly enjoying Punjabi cuisine. The next choice will be between Nicco Park and Eco Park. Eco Park is less of rides and more of enjoying the surrounding while Nicco Park is famous solely for the rides and is very popular among kids. After spending some time there we would have fuchka while returning to the hotel. Kolktan fuchka is better than golgappa or panipuri or whatever else.

Day 5Movie at Nandan

In the morning, the tourists would be taken to Nandan to watch a Bengali movie (with subtitles). Breakfast would be done at Haldirams. From here we will visit the very famous sweet shop “Banccharam’s”. The variety of unique sweets you get here are astounding.

Proceed to Gariahat for some last minute shopping. After that for lunch, we would go to Tandoor House for their Biriyani combo! Sumptuous to the power of infinity.

Post lunch head to the accommodation and later to the airport for the flight back home.
