    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

    Just Asian

    Kalikapur, Kolkata

    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

    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

    The Protein Bistro

    Southern Avenue, Kolkata

    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

    Blue Mug

    Jodhpur Park, Kolkata

    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.

     

    SOI

    SOI

    New Market, Kolkata

    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

    First Flush

    First Flush

    Gariahat, Kolkata

    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.
