There was a long pending agreement between me and my local foodie friend Subhankar. It was that during winters he shall take me along for sampling local Kachuri breakfast (Kachori is also called as Kachuri) which city’s various iconic eateries offer and are quite popular with the locals. As the luck would have it, he suddenly sprained his ankle and had to excuse himself just one hour in advance of our meeting time. But then he suggested that he shall send me the details of what he had planned for us and that, if I wanted, I could carry on. As soon as I kept the phone down, a series of WhatsApp messages came in giving detailed descriptions including location pins. Having equipped with the guiding details, we set out for our breakfast.
As the luck would have it, five days later I was in Kolkata. And, was committed to be there at The Blue Poppy-Thakali. Once again, it was an evening full of amazing food and unending talks and photo sessions. We were hosted at the personal table of Doma (the first on the left as soon as you enter). The food line up, personally chosen by Doma, unfolded like a Bollywood thriller with a superb climax.
