Not only Kolkata favourites but exotic fare such as Italian, Chinese and Lebanese are also on offer.
A glimpse into the variety revealed Lebanon Bar B Q chicken, Hummus Nashib & Pita Bread, and Lebanon Khati Kebab Wrap from Go Lebanese; Aghani Tangri , Chicken Pahanri Kebab and Mixed Noodles from 3 Idiots; Vetki Kebab Fry and Chicken Kabiraji from Poush Parban; and Sengupta's Luchi Alur Dum and Tikka Fry; Dahi Puchka and Papri Chat from Asha Chat Centre; Chicken Puchka and Bhetki Pattice from The Galley, etc.
No eating out is complete without a bite of dessert – for which you may drop in at Turkisyano for some Turkish Ice Cream, bite into Alphonso Mango Sandesh or Butterscotch Sandesh from Nalin Chandra, or get into the winter mood with Patisaptha Pithe and Mango Pithe from Rupkatha.
The more adventurous may try the Mango Paan from Roy Pan.
