Kolkata's (Calcutta's) Paramount Sorbet Bar - Best In The Town - Next To None

Whenever I visit College Street I make it a point to visit Paramount - the one-stop shop for sherbets in Kolkata (Calcutta). Paramount is a 94 years old sherbet joint that boasts of a rich heritage that very few places in the city can match up to. It is declared as a Heritage building/shop by Kolkata (Calcutta) Municipal Corporation.

Kolkata's Chinese Breakfast

One of the best ways to start your day's food expedition is to have a slice of China in your breakfast... and for this what can be a better place than Kolkata's (Calcutta's) very own "China Town". It is a very interesting fact that Kolkata (Calcutta) is the only city in India that has a "China Town". The Chinese have settled in Kolkata as early as the 1780s, and since then they have played a significant role in defining Kolkata's (Calcutta's) cuisine.

Kalika Mukhorochok Telebhaja - Kolkata's Best Snacks!!

Kalika, telebhaja, tele bhaja, college street, surya sen street, Kolkata, Calcutta, Aaloor chop, Mochar chop, Peyanji, Beguni, Mutton chop, Chicken chop, Chingrir chop, prawn cutlet, Fish Fry, Fish Roll
If you have come near College Street in north/central Kolkata (Calcutta) and have not tasted the deep-fried snacks (Tele Bhaja) from "Kalika" then you are really missing something that can not be expressed in words. Kalika is a shop specializing in cutlets in central Kolkata. Frankly speaking I have had the best Beguni (fried slices of Brinjal dipped in gram flour batter) of Kolkata (Calcutta) in "Kalika Mukhorochok Telebhaja".
