Unusual Indian street food | TRADITIONAL Bengali food + massive Indian food tour in KOLKATA, INDIA 

Kolkata is a wonderland for people who love to eat! In this video we hunt down some of Kolkata's best street food and eat traditional Bengali dishes. We start off with breakfast of chai and malai toast at a famous tea stall and then head for lunch at one of Kolkata's famous Pice Hotels. Pice Hotels- named after the paisa (a hundredth of a rupee, a coin which now been phased out) as meals in these hotels used to cost only a few paisa. The Pice system means each item of your meal down to the banana leaf and clay cup is charged individually. We eat traditional Bengali dishes here of mutton kasha, a spicy Bengali curry and rui maacha jhol, a Bengali fish curry. Both are sensational. Onwards to Dacres/Deckers Lane for its famous chicken stew washed down with a hot milk and finally some fried snacks to end the night. We hope you enjoy this huge Indian street food tour in Kolkata! #indianstreetfood #kolkatafood #india #kolkata

We’re Thomas and Sheena, food and travel fiends. We travel full time, hunting for the BEST local food in the world to showcase via our YouTube videos. Food is a window into a country's culture and one of the most exciting ways to get to know a place.

We're all about eating what and where the locals eat. You won't find food that's been created merely to be social media worthy on here- no rainbow bagels, gold leaf soft serves- just genuine, authentic food that tastes incredible.

From street food to mom and pop restaurants, we want to show you the best and most authentic food we find on our travels.
