Recently, I’ve been to 2 cafe, which I found quite different from the usual run of the mill numerous ones. Both cafes have got one aim, one motto, one vision and that’s the good part, but surprisingly, the path taken is quite different. This is their story. The first one is Cafe I can Fly….

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…

The truffle festival at La Cucina, Hyatt Regency, Kolkata

Nawwarah- the new age vegetarian restaurant and lounge

Firstly, I am a big time carnivore and frankly it’s not a secret now and secondly Kolkata is a city of non-vegetarians. But, nowadays vegetarian fine-dining restaurants are opening up in the city, which are serious in their business, and probably it’s a good sign. This time, the post is one one of the newbies…
