Phuchkas To Telebhaja: The Ultimate Guide To Street Food In Kolkata
We Calcuttans love our street food. No matter how many fancy restaurants we go to for their amazing food, we find comfort and satisfaction only in the raaste ka puchka or 'chicken roll' or telebhaja. Well, if you are also crazy about street food as much as we are, then check our guide on where you can find the best ones in town.
Nothing can beat the taste and flavours of the rolls that you get at Hot Kati Rolls. Crisp and fried to perfection, the kathi rolls here are immensely popular among the crowd. Go for their Double Egg Roll, Chicken Roll or Paneer Roll. If you walk ahead, you'll find Kusum Roll Shop, another famous one in the area. The city is filled with roll shops. Besides these, you can try the rolls at Jabbr Afghani, Nizam's and Jhantu Rolls.
There's a puchkawala who sits right outside the Kali Temple in Lake Kalibari. He's known to serve possibly the best puchkas and aloo dum in town. He also sells dahi puchka if that's what you prefer. Walk down that stretch and take the next left for more delish street food. Gorge on this popular street food outside Forum Mall, Victoria Memorial, Dakshinapan and lots of other places. You'll find one in every corner.
Momo is like the staple diet of every Kolkatan. A plate of hot, piping momos is all you need to feel happy and we know just the place for it. The momo stall right outside the Rabindra Sadan metro station (Gate No. 1) is hugely popular for its veg and chicken momos. You'll always find a crowd there so be prepared to wade through them or wait for a bit. The soft steamed momos are served hot with two types of chutney and soup. That entire stretch and the opposite foot are full of momo stalls. If that's too far for you, try the ones near 8B in Jadavpur or Indrani's Momo in Sovabazaar. They are equally good.
