Foodie’s guide to Darjeeling- the cult favorites

Come whatever may, a normal regular Kolkattan will visit three places in his / her life. And, surprisingly, the place’s name is “Di-pu-Da”- now don’t get me wrong. They are basically, Digha Puri and Darjeeling- the three mascots of tourism in and around West Bengal. So, if it’s a one night or two night holiday,…

Mohamushkil searching for Mumbai food – part 2

So, mumbai had been good for me for last few days (you may like to read that from my previous post here). Time was running short for exploring mumbai food . And, just at that point of time, Niladri fixed up time with me for another old time tested joint there called Bagdadi Restaurant. Now…

Mohamushkil searching for mumbai food – part 1

Mumbai is a city of dreams – they say and frankly for a foodie like me, that holds true. Maybe the competition is so high here, or let me put in this was, there are so many restaurants, that either you are good or you die- it’s a super cut-throat competitive world. So, it was…

Mohamushkil at Siliguri – the short foodie trip

This year, with family (yes, with my own wife), I’ve been on a trip to north bengal. and I’ve managed to find out few lesser-known god-foresaken places. You can read about the same here.  Now, once we came down to Siliguri, it was like a homecoming for my mother. She was literally dying to watch her favorite…

The north-bengal escapade

Frankly, I was getting mind-$#%^ed here in my city. It was long back that I took a proper vacation- a vacation that would’ve given me relief from my daily hustle and bustle and those endless phone-calls and mails.  So, this time, when I started searching for my perfect summer hide-out, I came across this FB…

Kachori in Varanasi- a foodie’s quest continues…

I admit, I am somewhat obsessed with Varanasi. Those quaint, serpentine lanes, those strange ghats which have witnessed few centuries of human foolishness- I love them. But this time when I went there (probably my 3rd visit ), this was planned to be a journey where I’ll witness the Varanasi gastronomic wonders. The first part…

Desserts you should try while at Varanasi

Varanasi, as they say, is the oldest city on earth. And, a city which has not changed itself, barring from some mobile company ads, from last few centuries deserves at least some special mention in the food scenario. Being a food-lover and registered glutton, this was probably my third visit there and I’m not ashamed…

Bawali Rajbari- ঘরের কাছে আরশিনগর

We were invited to Bawali Rajbari a few weeks back with my fellow bloggers. There was Soumya from Streets Of calcutta, Anirban Halder, Rangan, Manjit and myself representing Social Bong.  The journey is around 2.5 hours from my place, Beliaghata (Thanks to the great roads in Behala), but the transport was a royal one. We were picked up and with a good company…

The Hyderabadi breakfast

I keep travelling- mostly for business- paapi pet ka sawal hain…. And, this time I was having a day’s time in hand while travelling to Hyderabad (Secunderabad nowadays). And, apart from those regular meals, this time I was determined that I have to visit the local Hyderabad food joints (at least some) no matter what….

Chennai express- from an otherwise non-veg foodie’s travel diary

“You are going to chennai- is it ? Fine, but let me give you some references for bengali restaurant”. “Thanks, but not thanks. I want to try the tamil food”. “Whaaaaat ? Have you gone out of your mind ? That Idli Dosa all day for so many days ????? “. This was the reaction from Kolkata, when…
