The parents usually prefer daal roti, the younger ones want Italian or Chinese but the only cuisine that’s usually a hit among all the age-groups, class and occasions is South Indian; and Kolkata has been loyal to its classic South Indian eateries; humble but consistent. With such an accustomed palate for a classic taste, the only mantra for any eatery to be a hit in the city is the food, and that has to be exceptionally good. BlabberCat tried out the trending South Indian restaurant that everyone’s been raving about, since one-and-a-half years, to see what the hype is about. Kurry Patta at Hungerford Street. Our verdict: Once you try it, it will become a new staple.
A 100% vegetarian restaurant, Kurry Patta has stepped up the game with its quick and hygienic service and consistently good food. The interior is spacious and pleasant with interesting decor. The owner, Anant Kanoria had a very simple theory when opening this place - the food needs to be mind-blowing and it did blow my mind. The self-made gunpowder tastes better than the ones we buy at the market and the texture of the rasam is soothing with the beautiful blend of spices. Situated right on a packed commuted street, once inside, the ambience cheers you up and you can enjoy a lavish meal with your family, a quick bite with a colleague or sit by yourself at the window and catch up with your own thoughts. read a book or just watch people go by..
What we loved:
