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 experience in Swissotel , I was feeling ashamed…

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…

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…

Jila Parikrama at Aaheli, Peerless Inn Kolkata

Frankly, I am not someone who goes ga-ga over bengali food in fine dining restaurants. No, it’s not the problem of those outlets, let me be very clear. It’s the problem of my typical middle class mentality. Whenever, I see a fish dish being priced at a bomb, my bong mind starts the calculation- this…

Three-sixty-three at The Oberoi Grand Kolkata and THE lunch buffet

The Oberoi Grand, somehow carries an air of old traditional Calcutta (and not Kolkata). And the good part is this is one of the few big hotels in the city that I felt is always doing good business both on rooms and F&B segment. Jokingly, I was told that there are loyalists who may and will object,…

My Big Fat Belly and KFF’s 3rd anniversary meet

My big fat belly !!! Big fat wedding – Delhi belly – big fat belly (myself off course) – my big fat belly ….. No, I am not trying to discuss the evolution of the name behind THE place for burger in Kolkata this time. Just that my thoughts go wild at times- that’s why……

the strange story of stew in Maidan tents

There are some strange eateries in and around Kolkata. They are underrated and often difficult to locate. Like those silent saints at Himalaya, they don’t like to publicize themselves. But, it’s more like one’s own wife. You find hundreds of faults in her, but at the end, you come back to her only- such is…
