If there is one restaurant for Bengali cuisine, which can possibly get the title of 'Best In Town', it's 6 Ballygunge Place. Loved by the masses and celebrities alike, 6 Ballygunge Place (named after the address of the first outlet in Ballygunge) has a total of three outlets across the city.
But nothing can beat the experience of dining at the Ballygunge one. From Sunil Gavaskar to Late Soumitra Chattopadhyay, 6 Ballygunge Place has been flocked by stars and celebrities, and remains an iconic place for Bengali food. One thing which stands out for the restaurant is that even though it offers remarkably tasty food, with a touch of fusion elements, the food still has a homely taste.
We love the creativity behind the beverage menu wherein the drinks are named after popular references from Bengali literature and cinema such as Sanyasi Raja, Professor Shonku, Apu Durga, Antony Firingee and more. Your meal will not have a boring start with options such as prawn cutlet, spicy crab claws, ilish cutlet, Chittagong fried promfret, fish kabiraji, chhana motorshutir chop and mochar chop, to name a few.
6 Ballygunge Place is known for its iconic fish and seafood dishes, especially its famed jewel, the Daab Chingri or prawns cooked in tender coconut milk, served inside a coconut shell! You can also try the enchor chingri, bhapa chingri, mocha chingri and chingri malaikari. For seafood lovers, we would definitely recommend the kakrar gaal pethechi which is a baked stuffed crab dish.
For Bengalis, ending the meal with a mishti is like the rule of law, and there are plenty of options to choose from the menu, starting with one of the best sellers, the baked mihidana with rabdi. There are other delectable options to choose from such as bhapa doi, chhanar malpua, baked pantua, aam sandesh paturi and daab bhapa sandesh.
