Taste the iconic Phuchka, a crispy fried ball stuffed with a medley of mashed potato, salt, and spices, guaranteed to awaken your senses with its explosive flavors, savour the tangy crunch of Jhaal Muri, a light and popular snack comprising puffed rice tossed with onions, cucumbers, mustard sauce, chickpeas, and crunchy batter fries. Then, indulge in the comforting warmth of Aloo Tikki Chaat, featuring grilled potato patties topped with chickpeas, tamarind sauce, and a hint of sweetness, crowned with crispy batter fries. Finally, conclude your chaat expedition with Dahi Phuchka, where the crispy fried balls are stuffed with creamy mashed potatoes, tangy yogurt, and a blend of tamarind and sweet sauce.

After a chaat adventure, it’s time for the world-famous Calcutta Kathi Rolls, paratha wrapped with mutton and salad.

Scene 2: Gossip

Location: BB Ganguly Street and Bidhan Sarani

Hop on the metro to reach Asia’s largest retail marketplace. Pause for an evening darshan at a 200-year-old Kali temple. Built by a Portuguese devotee of the goddess, it’s a testament to Kolkata’s rich cultural tapestry. Blessed and energized, make your way to Kolkata’s oldest sweet shop, serving up legendary Bengali treats for nearly two centuries and arrive at College Street. Pause at a century-old café for a glass of its famed coconut drink, steeped in history and tales of freedom fighters who once frequented its tables. Next, board a local bus to an iconic eatery serving fritters for over a century to sample their renowned Mango Fritters, bursting with the tangy sweetness of green mangoes and their secret ingredient, along with flavourful Onion Fritters made from various grams and onions.

Location: Shovabazar

Stroll through the enchanting alleyways of Old North Kolkata to reach a joint famed for its Prawn Cutlet cooked in clarified butter.
