This place just lives up to your breakfast goals in the city and everything is worth eating here. In a hot cup of Chai and the pleasant weather with the mesmerizing view of Writer’s Buildings. This place is the oldest Stock Exchange in South-Asia. Since the Calcutta Stock Exchange has stopped its operation before that these place used to be the place for the people who deal in the stock over tea, the only things they are left with is the lanes and the food stalls. This small little stalls in the corners of the lane in front of Calcutta stock exchange is the perfect place to go if you want to experience Kolkata. People in their luxury Sedan stops by just to have a taste of their tea and malai Toast. Be it a morning or evening on a weekend, if you are lucky to get a parking space.
As you know people are just obsessed with the iconic Club Kachori but for a change, you should definitely give it a try as here. Some come after the morning walks and the others come to have quick food bite and others by taking a break from offices or tutions nearby.
Here we get the hot piping Kesar Chai in the Earthen pots and the tastiest sandwiches and you definitely can’t miss is the Malai Toast as it is the popular item you should try. Their South Indian was amazing and light to the stomach. The dosa was thin and crisp. The potato, carrot and tomato filling was mixed and the coriander added an extra dash of flavor with all the spices. Sambhar and chutney are also amazing.
The sandwich was quarterly divided and it was perfectly crisp and amalgamation of veggies with cheese was a perfect delight. The veggies were well cooked and maintain the crispiness. The Sandwich was served with green chutney and tomato sauce. I can assure you the best veg sandwich the city can offers.
