14359 Interested |


Love phuchka but bored with the same old recipe? Welcome to Kolkata, where a young 20-year-old sells phuchka in twenty different varieties and uses mineral water and napkins. Here’s presenting to you, Parkas Phuchka and Pani Puri Stall!

What Makes It Awesome

Right beside Alipore Garden Café, near Woodlands High building is Parkas Phuchka and Pani Puri stall, a one-of-a-kind phuchkawala who has added 20 different twists to the usual phuchka and travelled to Bangkok and Singapore with his recipes. Meticulous about opening his stall everyday sharp at 3.10 PM for four years now, he gathers a large crowd of phuchkalovers from all around town with his scrumptious phuchka spread! If you are an ardent phuchka-lover, the menu will leave you spoilt for choice!

It has a mind-boggling and rather creative variety – ghugni phuchka, dahi phuchka, bullet phuchka, rocket phuchka, chocolate phuchka, badam phuchka, kissmish phuchka, and the list goes on. We had a plate having one of each, because honestly, who could miss out on any of them?

We recommend to not miss out on the one-of-a-kind chocolate phuchka, the badam and kissmish (raisin) phuchka, and of course, the classic phuchka which comes with four different kinds of water. Who knew phuchka could blend so well with molten chocolate and badam-kissmish? We also loved the bullet phuchka, but fair warning, it is not for the spice-intolerant palate!

If you love phuchka, and haven’t been to Parkas Phuchka and Pani Puri Stall, it’s no less of a gastronomical blasphemy. Head over to Alipore Road right now and see for yourself what your favourite is from the 20 varieties on offer. Somebody give him a Make In India award already.
