BEST Biryani! & Food Tour of Kolkata India: Kathi Rolls!

  • Published on Apr 19, 2018
  • Kathi Rolls, Biryani, and Ragulla sweets are some dishes that Kolkata is known for. In India, biryani is prepared in different ways according to region and Kolkata is no exception. The Kolkata biryani is known for its egg and potato in the dish, and I totally agree that it is a MUST.
    Bengali food is also prominent in this city, so in the final two locations, we tried the traditional and modern versions of the cuisine.

    2:30 Nizam's Rolls
    5:30 Nahoum and Sons (Cheese Samosa, garlic bread, fruit cake)
    8:00 Arsalan Restaurant (Biryani, mutton curry)
    13:28 Mithai (Rasgulla Sweet)
    15:35 Zeeshan rolls (Mutton Tikka Roll)
    17:54 Campari (Fish Roll)
    19:39 Bohemian (Modern Bengali Food)
    22:16 6 Ballygunge Place (Traditional Bengali Food)

    I studied Archaeology in college. And, Mike is right. Archaeology students actually study food. Especially where each food originated from and how/when they were introduced to another part of the world.

    I'm Bengali but brought up in London. The best biriyani I've ever had is when I've gone on holidays to Kolkata. I've even made my mum smuggle it back in her suitcase lol. There are like a million Indian restaurants in London but can't get Kolkata biriyani 😭😭

      Adharsh Reddy are hysterical & sagacious ...delve yourself and you would fathom out Kolkata biriyani is the most delicious and mouthwatering ...And ya...(I eat more spicy food though ) this love for spicy food would saccharize you with the sweets of are welcome chap.

      @Soumyojit Dey I love Awadhi biryani too, just haven't tried the Kolkata Biryani yet. Even though I'm a sucker for maddeningly spicy food, I like to eat some mildly spiced food for a change.

      PS: But your biryani's got nothing on the Hyderabadi Biryani, Nemo.(I hope you get that reference lol)

      Nizam boi, I honour the oldest hyderabadi chefs with cordon bleu. But needless to say, being a pan Indian ,you or me can't proof & predict the origin and real ecstasic taste & origin of biriyani. Your's are dum style & ours are mild, scented and tenderly cooked.I have seen North Indian homies rummaging for awadi or Calcutta biriyani

    Wow so far the Indian food presented is so greasy and rich. Is that their regular diet or this is more like outside food indulgence do they eat that home too? My Bengladashi friend says brown food even home cooking is usually unhealthy with little greens that’s why the general brown family has some health complications. But I’m not sure if that’s true let me know! Is the food usually unhealthy even for the general Indian home cooking?

    Hay...even i take the same seat position...Yet Nizam biriyani and roll is traditional but they are very unhygien.. I with my family going to this restrurant to try biriyani.we observe , a couple come and order a mutton biriyani, they eat little but quarrelling among themselves and finally left. Then a restrurant stuff come to this table and took the left food,, look the surroundings and mixed with main biriyani handi......we are they can mix the dipping food with main handi....
    They compromised with public health ......
