2.  Bibi of Taaja's

35 Dhakuria Station Road Kolkata 700031

Relocated to a new address in Dhakuria, Taaja's run by Bibi Sarkar is now called the Bibi of Taaja's. It was the first outlet to introduce Khow Sweh in Kolkata and through all these years they have continued their devotion and passion towards the food they serve.

3. Laxmi Narayan Shaw And Sons

Bidhan Sarani, Shobhabazar

Since 1918 the small 'telebheja' corner has been the love of the locals. To indulge in the history of it, the small shop was called Netajir chop-er dokan, since it was Subhas Chandra Bose's favourite little shop and he celebrated his birthday twice at this shop. Perhaps it's time for you to get a taste of history.
