Lunch @ Swadhin Bharat Hotel, College Street

Lunch is incomplete without authentic Bengali cuisine and the best places to go for that are at the Pice or Hindu hotels. Established in the 30s, where one could get a meal for only a few paisa back then. They are a usual haunt of the city's working class. We indulged in Rice Thali with Fish and Mutton at Swadhin Bharat Hotel.

Price: Rs 200/-

Best Ever Evening Snack, Puchka

We spent Rs 20/- on a plate of Puchka and 10 for a hot piping tea.

Dinner @ Zam Zam Restaurant, Park Circus

Among other things, Kolkata's biryani is to die for! While you have many options to indulge in the sinful biryani, we recommend Zam Zam hotel, where you get a plate-full of goodness at just Rs 130/-
