You should definitely try the fish cutlets from any of the restaurants and you will happily say that you have never had such fish in your life.
Apart from what I have already told you, I am listing some other things that you must eat in Kolkata.
Puchkas aka Pani Puri aka Gol Gappe:
- S.S Hogg Market
- New Market
- The Park street
- Victoria Memorial
- Indian Museum
- Teretti Market
- Mullick Ghat
- Howraw Brigde
- Kewpies (missed)
You can find a lot of friendly Langur Monkeys (read gigantic monkeys with huge tails who can bitchslap you with one eye closed) who sit patiently for visitors to sit with them and sometimes feed them with their own hands!
The Dakshineshwar temple starts with a lively market where you can buy statues and pictures of gods and get souvenirs for your family, there are many stalls to eat if you feel hungry after the ferry ride and all the walking.
We travelled mostly on foot but we enjoyed the local transport as well. Don’t forget to catch a metro ride in the country’s oldest metro rails. Ride a yellow taxi or jump up on a tram. Trams are really interesting and the way they run on the roads beside the main traffic, it is really strange and wonderful to watch. The local buses are colorful, their interiors are broken and weary but worth experiencing.
No job, No money, No comfort, Nothing can match the joy of travelling and a trip to a city with a spirit, like Kolkata can make you rethink about your life and goals and most probably will make you realize what you are and who you want to be.
