Nothing makes a dyed-in-the-wool Bengali happier than some fresh fish, and our favourite water baby is savoured Bengali style in many ways, from a crisp fish fry, to a spicy chop to a zingy curry with rice. We decided to speak to a few Bengalis in the know and share our top picks for where you can buy this staple from.

Surya & Company - South City 2

This part of town swears by Surya simply because of the freshness that is almost a guarantee with their catch. Especially when one is picking up the classic Rohu for a fish curry, one often has to buy a piece from a bigger fish, in which case the freshness becomes of paramount importance.

Delite Foods - Vyapar Kendra

Delite Foods is a go-to for all things meaty and carnivorous, but locals in the know throng to this little nook in Vyapar Kendra for their great range of fish, and they typically have a great variety to choose from. They do home delivery as well and what makes the deal even sweeter is the fact that this market is also great to pick up other Bengali stuff – like the right masalas and ingredients.

David & Company - Arjun Marg

This is a reliable player for glistening aquatic treats, and the USP is the availability of more exotic stuff like fresh prawns {for a Daab Chingri}, lobsters and even smoked salmon if you’re up to it.

Choices Meat And More - Nirvana Courtyard

On the speed dial of most fish curry addicts, Choices is a meat shop that has slowly but steadily built a reputation for stocking up on fresh and varied catch, and also has a slight more plush vibe as compared to the others. Home delivery is an option here too.
