Mohamushkil and the meat-y affair at Macazzo

Recently, there is a strange trend in Kolkata, or I am not very sure whether I am the only one getting victimized there. There has been numerous new restaurants, yes “numerous” is the keyword. The decor is fantastic, service is top notch, it’s pretty steep on pocket- all fine. But whenever the food appears, it…

Beef joints one should try in Kolkata- Part 1

Let me be honest (now, people say that’s one of my weak points). There are a lot of restaurants Kolkata which serve good beef preparations. Now, what separates the good from the rest or rather the great from the good- is the question. Frankly, as a food blogger, I strongly feel, food is one hell…

Bohri foodfestival at Eden Pavillion, ITC Sonar

Bohri cuisine is one of the most underrated and less available cuisines. AS per my knowledge goes, it originated from the Shia muslim community in Yemen, who later traveled largely to western India and Pakistan. Thus there is a strong gujrati confluence in it as well as an overdose of meat, it’s not that we…

What to expect from a food blogger and what he can expect

A fight always goes on in this age of digital media boom. Let’s take a situation, some hotel or restaurant has invited a blogger (let’s keep the genre open…) or social media influencer (or even maybe a group)…. they’ve given them food, drinks (please mind, it’s a non-paid association). Now, definitely the outlet will have…

Mohamushkil at KFC

Let me confess, I am not much of a KFC fan, but when they’ve come up with their Chizza, I was invited there for a food tasting session. As it’s close to my place, I’ve gone to the CC1 outlet for the tasting. Now, these big food chains have always surprised me with something. I…

Mohamushkil at Social Kitchen, Holiday Inn, Kolkata

After a long time, this post will be not on the food or the service of the new kid in town (basically a global giant taking its first baby steps in our city of joy), but on the homecoming for me. First things first, Holiday Inn has opened their first luxury hotel in Kolkata- just…

Colgate magical stories and mohamushkil with my monkey prince

There is this TV ad going on and on for Colgate toothpaste- with some childish cartoons on pack and somehow, my son saw it. The way, I am saying it, it isn’t that simple. Seeing the ad means I’ve to get the thing for him- period. But, “we already use Colgate and the month’s supply…

Kashmiri food festival at Oceanic, Peerless Inn Kolkata

Among the lesser known cuisines in India, Kashmiri cuisine probably reigns supreme (off course I am opinionated here…) and because of some reason, it’s extremely difficult to get other than Kashmir herself and Leh, Ladakh. Now, luckily, I’ve traveled to Kashmir (and back in one piece) but that time, I didn’t have this madness called…

Apanjan- the legendary fish fry in south Kolkata

“South Calcuta has no good joint for fried food, barring Bijoligrill” my friend told me. That set me thinking. Though I am a lover for north Calcutta’s dingy old fry shops, still I can remember at least couple of great joints from my old para, bhowanipore who can easily compete with city’s best and most…

The eventful Kolkata winter

I the louuuuve Kolkata winters. At least for a bloody glutton, that I am, it is sheer heaven. Almost everybody is coming up with some or the other food festivals and luckily, every dog has its own day and for me, I am getting invited to some (and rejecting most for my getting-old-quotient), thanks to…

Mohamushkil at the Parsi food festival at The Parsee Club

As per the history and Quissa-E-Sajan goes (and as usual, I’m extremely bad with both), parsi community came down to India during around 8th century and settled in the western coast. The cuisine is, for some reason unknown, very closely guarded and kept secret only to the community. As I could find out from my Mumbai…
