Raisa posted on 12 July

Ten-Second Takeaway

Say hello to the new restaurants that have made their way into the city of joy, into our hearts and straight into our bellies!

Just Asian

Calling out to all the sushi and sashimi lovers – a must-try if you love Japanese cuisine. Indulge in the Prawn Tempura or the exotic Chicken Hibachi and get ready for a party in your mouth. Who doesn’t love a big bowl of Udon or Soba noodles? Authentically and wonderfully Japanese, they also have loads of stuff for all the vegetarians. They serve miso, tuna, glass noodles, yakitori and all the other wonderful things we love about Japanese food

1st Floor, 956, Kalikapur Road, Opp. Bharat Petrol Pump, Kalikapur, Kolkata

Whistling Kettle

Step into a Darjeeling style tea room with a range of teas that will excite any tea enthusiast. The positive-tea of the cafe will lift your spirits, as will the family who own and run it. You can even take home with you a tea set from their store in the front of the café. You will love the Nathmull’s Special Tea and Keventer’s breakfast platter.

The Protein Bistro

Can I get a “hallelujah” from all the health freaks out there? Kolkata has its own protein-laden healthy eating joint that will let you eat out without all the extra calories {and it doesn’t just serve salad!} Try the grilled proteins {we love the fish}, quinoa bowl {one of the few places in the city serving quinoa} or the giant healthy breakfasts. You can even get this healthy meal home delivered.

Blue Mug

If you’re looking for a place to hang with friends, Blue Mug is the answer to your problems. The newest coolest hipster café in town, Blue Mug’s quirky décor and pocket-friendly prices will keep you coming back for more. The outdoor seating is perfect for the cooler months. We love the sandwiches – filling and at INR 120 {plus taxes} onwards, great value for money.

You’ll have major flashbacks to walking on the road in any country in South-East Asia and eating off the hawker carts because that’s how authentically Asian the food in SOI is. We love the Moon Fan Rice {bonus points for presentation!} and the Tom Yum Soup. A must-visit for all Asian food addicts. They have amazing deals during happy hours {4-7pm} which will make your meal all the more affordable


26, Jawaharlal Nehru Road, Near Indian Museum, New Market Area, Kolkata

Frollz brings Ice Cream Rolls to Kolkata for the first time. You can watch your ice cream being prepared {just like on Masterchef!}. Available in all the classic flavours like butterscotch and cookie as well as innovative ones like paan {our favourite – they use fresh betel leaf inside the ice cream} and pina colada. On the ground floor, TRO serves scrumptious veggie rolls so you can grab a bite before heading upstairs for dessert.

First Flush

Did someone say Bacon Cheese Bombs? This quaint and tasteful café in Gariahat takes café food to the next level with Basil Chicken Skewers and Pork Ribs being the favourites on the menu. With every main course, you also get the dessert of the day free – a deal of a lifetime!  The tea pots come nestled in tea-cosies, with pretty little sand clocks ensure the tea leaves infuse into the water for exactly the right amount of time.
