Kewpie's

Kewpie's is a restaurant in Kolkata located near Rabindra Sadan Metro station. It was started in the year 1989. Since then, they have been serving authentic home cooked Bengali food in a wonderful ambiance. All the recipes are from the owner’s mother’s recipe books, but as and when the restaurant started growing, they added more recipes from friends and family. The restaurant has been established inside their house. But because they were always over booked, they decided to convert it to a fully functional restaurant. They organize food festivals on a regular basis and serve some of the favorite dishes of Kolkata.

Chef Joy Banerjee, who previously worked with Oh Calcutta and Oberoi hotels, spins up a vibrantly designed Bengali cuisine eatery called Bohemian. As its title suggests, this eatery in the busy Ballygunge precinct cooks up traditional Bengali fare with a modern twist. You can find a menu deep rooted in Kolkata's ancient cooking methods and recipes but appealing to a diverse global clientele of diners.

6 Ballygunge Place

Situated in a quiet residential area of Ballygunge, 6 Ballygunge Place comfortably blends in with its surroundings. This is because the restaurant is located in an actual house in the area, and not very different from the others along the street. The name is the actual address of the restaurant too! The creative, yet simple exterior makes this quite a unique place to visit. As you enter the restaurant, the ambiance of a comfortable home takes over and the mouthwatering aromas put you in the mood for a hearty meal. And a hearty, sumptuous meal is exactly what you get: a full-fledged Bengali buffet serves everything from Luchhas, Illish and Kachha Mangsho to the famous Bengali yogurt-based dessert Mishti Doi. You can also order the chef's recommendations from the a la carte menu. The restaurant itself retains the original structure of the house, complete with a corridor at the entrance, living room (which is used as the buffet area) and three other rooms that have comfortable red booths used for dining. Adding the last touch are the traditional artifacts that are displayed all around the restaurant. If you crave authentic Bengali cuisine, there is no better place than 6 Ballygunge Place!

Bhojohori Manna

The name is inspired from a 1970s Bengali movie about a cook known as 'Bhojohori Manna'. And just like the name, this restaurant is 'Bengali' all the way. The budget prices you see on the menu are an effort to preserve the old 'pice hotel' concept. Of course, the food is always much more than you expect; you can go for the mini or maxi thala, which includes a full traditional Bengali meal. However, if you would rather relish just a few specialties, Macher Chop (Fish Starter), Shorshe Begun (Eggplant in Mustard Gravy), Ilish Barishali, Kankara Jhal (Crab Curry) and Bhekti Paturi are the most tantalizing of the lot. For the perfect end to your meal, try popular Bengali sweets like Mishti Doi or Sandesh. The restaurant has a number of branches across the city; this particular branch at Ballygunge has a humble appearance, but is incredibly popular among those who crave authentic Bengali flavors. The restaurant has free delivery and also has a 'Dekchi' service which works out perfectly for large groups.
