Another jewel in Kolkata's Park Street is the age-old OlyPub. It's the oldest pub in the city which serves some delicious food apart from the cheap alcohol. Don't forget to try the Chicken Ala Kiev here apart from the obvious!
As it got dark, I returned to the hotel and took some rest. Thereafter, I freshened up again and stepped on the brightly lit streets and walked to Park Street. On Park Street, I grabbed dinner at McDonald's (instead I should have tried the local rolls on the Park Street) and then walked several paces to stop in front of the vintage OLYPUB.What India Coffee House at College Street is for coffee, Olypub is for beer. The alcohol here is cheap and the bar has that old worn out Kolkata look but still hasn't crumbled. It's no wonder that one has to stand in a waiting line to get in. Being a loner, I got in within few minutes and gulped down two beers, still soaking the amazing first day of my city tour.
Olly Pub- Want to have some good booze with your mates that too in a pocket friendly range? Well you can visit this place near Park Street which serves you not just your favourite booze but also some great snacks to nibble on. Chicken rum ball and dry chilli chicken belongs to two different food families but ordering them both at a same time would blow your taste buds and your tummy with a good night’s sleep for the day!Enough of tickling your taste buds in these famous restaurants, it is time to narrate one of the most shocking fact - it is the only city that serves a sumptuous vegetarian meal only at INR 15!!! You don’t believe me? Neither could I believe this because; I spend nearly a lot of Rs 15 on my ‘Marlboro Lights’ in Delhi, while this city still serves a meal with the same money. Trust me the quality of food is no cheap standard but I cannot guarantee you the health of your stomach after few days though!
Regular customers swear by this long-standing bar and eatery on Park Street. Olypub has managed to keep its grungy, rustic appeal that keeps its patrons coming back year after year. Go here for, arguably, the best beef steak in Kolkata, reasonably priced drinks, and a heavy dose of nostalgic banter drifting in from one of the nearby tables.
