They say they were the ones to invent the world-famous rosogolla. We don’t know that for sure, but while you’re there, don’t just stick to the rosogolla. We suggest you try their rossomalai, rossomadhuri, and kesar raj bhog. If you’re conscious about the calories but don’t want to miss out on the best rosogollas in town, they have sugar-free ones.
