Foodistaan Kolkata !

Come on, don’t tell me you don’t know that Kolkata is a foodistaan(land of good food). Well then I would like to take great pride in stating the fact that it is. And not only do we get good food here but also a bunch of good people who are something more than just foodies, and by a bunch I mean all of them. Although universal stereotypes state that we Bengalis are only famous for being fish eaters, but let me clear you this, we have interest in basically every other quality food until & unless it is harming our sentiments. We have great taste, we believe we possess a thousand taste buds more than a normal non-bengali person which is obviously unknown to the world and we have an infinite GB of cloud storage in our stomachs so that none of us shall do the sin of missing a quality food.


Although in this article I would like to bend more towards the great food we find here than the good people having them, and in this process I would like to or rather I would love to disclose one of my most favorite lists. Yes a list that has certain names of restaurants of local food joints with their locations and what they are famous for. I believe this list can be a treasure for a person who wishes to visit Kolkata and he/she has an obsession with food, so this is for all of them who have not visited these places and also for them who were searching for.
