Yes that’s True i have never had a sweet as tasty as Jal Bhara Sandesh in my life. There is more to Kolkata than what meets the eye. If you have missed episode 1 of Kolkata series, you may have a look at it through Playlist.
Following are the details of the places visited by as part of this Kolkat tour.
Sharma Tea House: What an amazing kachori, completely different in taste and reasonably priced too.
I think i got little more excited after drinking kesar chai but that’s true i enjoyed the taste and chai after kachori was like beautiful start to the day.
Khasta Kachori Rs. 35
Jalebi Rs. 12
Kesar Chai Rs. 40
Address: 55C, sambhunath pandit lane, bhawanipur
Victoria Memorial : This is a must visit place, you can spend 2 hours here and learn about the history of Kolkata. I would suggest you to go here early in morning at around 10 am, so you can go along with the first batch of guide, you don’t have to pay any extra cost for the guide.
Ticket Rs. 30 for gallery & garden
Timings 10am to 6 pm
Abar Baithak: More than the taste i enjoyed the cafe ambience, though taste was also great.
Fish & Chips Rs. 290
Address: 282, jodhpur park
Balaram Mullick & Radharaman Mullick: I did a mistake by not visiting this shop again, i wanted to get some parcel done for taking along sweets for my home but eventually bought sandesh for my home from Airport by paying higher price,that was obvious.
I am not exaggerating by saying that if you have Jal Bhara sandesh in Kolkata you will become big fan of this sweet, Not only that but more sweets as well.
Baked Rossogolla Rs. 16 per pcs
Jalbhara Sandesh Rs. 20 per pcs
Mango Curd Rs. 28 per pcs
Address: 2, Paddapukur Road
6 Ballygunge Place: Though cost of food at this restaurant is high but if you are comfortable paying high price for food you will be deeply impressed by the taste of Bengali food at this fine dining restaurant.
Mochar Paturi Rs. 200
Daab Chingri Rs. 525
Address: 6 ballygunge place
Hope you enjoyed watching this Episode 2 of our Kolkata, West Bengal food and travel series.
I am deeply impressed by the West Bengal food cuisine, It will not be wrong to say that Kolkata food is underrated… There is so much more that we missed, there wasa 2 day strike in Kolkata when we were there.
We missed those 2 working days, but yes we did our best on available time.
My sincere thanks to all the subscribers of visa2explore who met me there at Kolkata and guided me on tour planning… thanks a lot for your guidance.
Thanks, regards, Harish Bali
