As its Durga Puja, thinking about biryani and shawarma’s as the go to food’s is a clear sin. It’s that time of the year where we all crave for genuine Bengali food, and believe me, finding a good bong restaurant in a non-bong city is a tough ask. But, don’t worry, we got you covered- Here’s FNL’s compilation of the best places to grab a taste of Bengali food in Delhi this festive season to satiate your taste buds.
The indulgent Bengali meal done right! Big Bongg Theory is a Compaq place with meals of the right proportion. Along with their classic Bengali seafood dishes and vegetarian dishes, which include delicacies such as Raw Banana Kofta and Aloo Posto, Big Bongg Theory also functions as a tea room.
City of Joy is known to procure their fish and spices from Bengal, and their kitchen crew is Oriya – a combination predestined to dish out amazing food! Must tries are their signature Diamond Fish Fry, Prawn Malai Curry, Aloo Dum and Amshotto Khejur Chutney.
Right from the Kathi Rolls to Mughlai Paratha, Ki Hangla! is a paradise for Bengali food lovers. The range includes popular street snacks (Beguni Bhaja, Egg Devil), as well as local favourites like Deem Tadka (dal with egg drop) and Matar Kochuri.
The Golbari Style Kosha Mangsho as well as the crab masala are the favourite dishes on the menu. And if you’re looking for something sweet, the Baked Mishti Doi is the go-to dessert.
With dhaba-like seating, Maa Tara doles out plates of fish curry and rice throughout the day to their extremely loyal customers. The extremely affordable restaurant houses the best of Sukto and Dhokar Dalna.
This nondescript little joint in Dwarka serves the most delicious Mochar Chop and Chingri Mochar Chop (banana flower cutlet with shrimp).
Reasonably priced, the food they serve here is to die for. Bijoli Grill does justice to its brand with their impeccably cooked Daab Chingri (prawns cooked inside a coconut) and Aloo Posto (potatoes cooked in poppy seeds).
