Mohamushkil at Dhaba-styled punjabi food festival at Durbari

There is a common trait which is found among all the dhabas in India…. The hot crispy roti (and even that crispiness can be customized) , the butter ladden, heavily spiced dal and those heavenly tandoori chicken. If we forget those classy fine-dining variety of kebabs, any day, those earthy tandoori chicken is drool-worthy. Now,…

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. The details for the same is posted here. Now, once we came down to Siliguri, it was like a homecoming for my mother. She was literally dying to watch her favorite…

Mohamushkil at D'Ley – another old-school chinese eating house

Like all good things, authentic Chinese eating houses are also shutting down today in Kolkata. A place with minimal ambiance and no-frills professional service- yet people flock there in groups just for the great food with honest price.  One such place is D’Ley. When one talks of the chinatown in Kolkata, we understand it to be…

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…

Thank you …..

Firstly, Thanks a lot to everyone. Really, I mean, with folded hands, from the bottom of my heart, thanks. Rarely such happens when a normal mango-people, almost reaching his forty, get to celebrate his birthday- forget about celebrating in a grand manner. But this year, thanks for my friends and well-wisher, it was a different…

Mohamushkil at Gabbars- the smoky affair

Frankly speaking, recently, this restaurant has been making quite a stir in the Kolkata foodie circle and I’m one of those poor souls who have not visited it. So, when it was time for one of my family dinners, I just looked no further and straightaway called them asking for a table reservation. The entire…

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…

nostalgia- thy nameth is Flurys

Idiot: Sir, being a foodie, have you been to Flurys ??? Person 1: But off course, and so has almost everyone in town Idiot: Sir, may I ask you something ? Why do you go to that place ? I heard, the experience is fantastic- you get a slice of old colonial Calcutta Person 1:…

মিষ্টিদই আর ছোট্ট এক পকেট কলকাতা

কোনো একটা অদ্ভুত কারণে এই কলকাতা শহরটা না আমার কাছে এখন আর শুধুমাত্র একটা থাকার বা কাজের জায়গা নয় – একটা অজগর সাপের মতন, বা বলা যায় শীতের দুপুরে লেপের মতন, যত দিন যাচ্ছে- এই শহরটা আমাকে ক্রমশঃ জাপ্টে ধরছে। আসলে ছোটবেলায় আমার ছেলে পেটের ভেতরে ঢুকে যেত আদর খেতে, এই শহরের পেটের ভেতর থেকে…

Goût de France 2017- West View ITC Sonar experience

Again I am back with french cuisine. Now, it’s your utmost right, in fact I’d say one of the fundamental rights to ask why an gastronomically-challenged-person-in-fine-dining- segment like me is writing about this fine cuisine and I fully support you on that ground. After I wrote about my Gout De France experience in Swissotel , I…

MPOC and a fun-filled sunday with friends…

Being a food-blogger (on, rather somebody who’s only fetish is food), I am used to attend events by brands and companies. But seldom, I come across an invitation from an international brand where, rather than only boring review, a fun-filled day was promised. One fine day, I got a call from the Malaysian Palm Oil…

Goût de France 2017- the Cafe Swiss experience

Let’s think you are someone who loves food- basically drools over food. Let’s say you’re someone, who’ve an taste for food, which is subtle and also visually pleasing. And also, let’s assume, you have a knack for fine dining. So, we can somewhat conclude, from the above assumptions, that you’d like french cuisine. And, this…
