Get ready with your Fork and Knife to dig in @Fork & Knife!

Today in this age of specialization, most of the restaurants which are opening up around us, have a specific theme or a cuisine they focus on. So most of our plans now are like, “Let’s go for an Italian dinner” or “Oh! We must try the new Chinese place”. And though I love cuisine based, or…

The coolest new Burger hot-spot in town at My Big Fat Belly

My love for burgers, sliders, sandwiches and wraps is a saga worth celebrating. Fillings and dressings, with a touch of seasoning, between two pieces of bread are what my dreams are made up of. So the  ‘My Big Fat Belly’, the newly opened place in Sarat Bose Road, is totally my kind of a place!…

A Meal to Remember at the Great Bohemian Brainstorming Munch

Bohemian, by Chef Joy Banerjee, from its very inception, has given the city an exquisite selection of fusion Bengali cuisine.

My Journey through the Continent @Asia Kitchen by Mainland China

Let’s Make Rakhi Sweeter!

Rakhi is just around the corner, on 18th August to be precise. And most brothers and sisters are surely gearing up to it. The popular notion of Rakhi being symbolic of a brother taking a vow to protect the sister, always came across as a little sexist to me and also, not having a brother, I always…

Spice it up @ Spice Kraft

The new player in town, Spice Kraft has garnered quite a loyal customer base in a very short span. After seeing a number of check-ins in Facebook, I knew I had to try it out. We ordered a Kokumrita: a play on the classic margarita, the Three Steps to Heaven: their version of the long…

Pan Asian, ITC Sonar, Kolkata

Now this review is certainly long overdue. We visited this place for my sister’s anniversary dinner. The menu came in parts and was a little confusing and the service was painstakingly slow. But while we were waiting for our food to arrive, we could see the Japanese chef juggling his knives, eggs and coins and…
