I am sure there are many die-hard fans of Mitra Cafe near Sovabazar Metro. Just last weekend I got to taste their batter- fry, or butter-fry as you may like. On menu card it was given as "fish Chinese". But who cares for a name when the taste is such heavenly. Perfect evening snack on a rainy day. I bet this cannot get any better. The thick slab of original bhetki will just melt in the mouth, be assured.

Siddheswari Bhojanalay & Koshe Kosha

Where exactly is Siddheswari Bhojanalay located?

Also, how is the Koshe Kosha restaurant on Ripon Street? If you have eaten there before, would you go back?

Not sure how Koshe Kosha is.... But Siddheswari is pretty good.... But a bit shabby arrangement compared to current times.

Has anybody tasted shawarma roll of late? Looks like it's the new fast-food favourite of Kolkata. Which outlet makes the best ones?

I haven't been to the Ripon Street outlet but there's one at Behala and you wouldn't wanna go there by mistake. Awful service and average food.

Largely agree with the survey but keemar doi bada is not all common and hence couldn't be treated as street food of Kolkata. Also, Chinese food items are missing with Tibetan momo, in the list.
