"Food is the answer, who cares what the question is!", and bongs live by it.
When it comes to food, bongs never discriminate. They have something to offer to each one of us.
No matter what your taste is- sweet, sour, salty or bitter, you will find something for you in the Bengali platter. If you think that Bengal is all about 'rosogulla', then dear you might have to update your dictionary.  
We bring to you, the mouth-watering and extremely enticing food from Bengal with lots of 'bhalobasha'.

I can't explain in words, what it tastes like. It is not just a dish, it is an emotion for the bongs. A tasteful curry made with prawns, cream and coconut milk. You better add this in your 'must have' list.


6. MURI GHONTO

Biryani is overrated. Don't worry, i am just kidding! If you love biryani, you can definitely give it a try. It is a kind of fish pulao made with fish head. Not to mention that it is awesome.


7. ROSOGULLA

Here is the Bengali rosogulla that we all love, isn't it? This sweet is the mascot of Bengal and all the bongs out there. An auspicious ceremony is just incomplete without it. 


8. SHORSHE ILISH

It is a combination of bitter gourd, potato, carrot, drum sticks, eggplant, and everything green. Bongs are crazy over food but they also know what is healthy for them.

Sweets are an indispensable part of a Bong's life. Cham Cham is a true bengali sweet that contains the richness of fresh chena and lots of love. They are often called 'pleasure boats'. 


I am a bong, i taste this cosmic Bengali cuisine everyday, and i can't wait for you to experience the ultimate foodgasm. Time to ask your Bong friend to invite you over a Bengali style dinner because we know "the fondest of the memories are created when gathered around a table".
