Kewpie's ~ A Bengali Food Restaurant

The name itself speaks for itself.

This restaurant by Rakhi Purnima has won awards by the dozen.

The ambiance is cozy and old world.

The extensive menu can easily confuse a non Bengali dinner. However, a friendly staff is present to help.

The basic veg thali: Rice, Luchi, Chola dal, Alu dom and Saag.

Next there was Doi begun, Daab chngri, Kosha Mangsho and Posta Alu and Jhinge.

Hold on, here is sweet mango Chutney.


Finally, there is Paan, Sandesh and Mishti doi.

A non-veg meal for two will set you back by 1200/- with every penny giving it's worth.

Next time you are in Kolkata, look it up~
