The Loggers’ Calcutta Chaat Trail

Filed under: F&B,West Bengal — loggers @ 6:50 pm

The highlight of our visit to Calcutta was the comprehensive chaat (snack) trail through Camac street.  We covered traditional Bengali chaats as well as national favorites, and recommend that you allocate ~4 hours to this culinary expedition if you want to experience the Calcutta food scene in true fashion.

The trail we followed was:

1) Start with Chilla opposite Vardan market on Camac Street
