Three cheers to Bengal's very own, most successful bakery and confectionery! Starting from a single outlet, Monginis has grown into a huge chain and para name in the last decade or so. They have several outlets in fuchsia pink and bright yellow to attract local clientele and offers something for every budget. Pricing starts as low as `3! Their savouries include regular Chicken Patties, Chicken Roll, Hot Dog, Chicken Internet, mini pizzas and burgers. But the Fish Chop, Mutton Shammi, Chicken Cutlet and Paneer Roll are unique. Their packaged fruit cake slices and cupcakes are popular too. Thanks to the bright icing on their cakes and wide range of pastries, they now have a huge chunk of the birthday-cake market in their pocket! Monginis has spread in every part of the city, as the list of branches shows!

Thanks to Gangaur and the street-food relish across the street, Russell Street has become an unconventional posh location for a vegetarian food hub. Gangaur is a food haven for a light snack or a full meal with North Indian and South Indian varieties. There’s a steady stream of families throughout the day, and on weekends you will often find a long queue for breakfast as well as dinner. Dosas, Club Kachori, Raj Kachori, Papdi Chaat, Belwa Kachori with Aloo Dum, Vegetarian Thalis as well as Dahi Phuchka are on high demand. The renovated interior is still a bit cramped and nobody seems to mind the waiters who try to coax you into finishing your meal in a jiffy.

Gangaur, the oldest mithai shop off Park Street, is on Russell Street. It caters to a huge amount of bulk orders, but at any point of time you will see trays displaying delectable North Indian mithais. Their Boondi Laddoo comes in special sizes on order, the Badam Burfi and the Dilkhush are immensely popular. They also make Rabadi and Ghewar in season. Savouries include samosas, kachoris and innovative stuffed delights. They have a successful section of eggless bakery, confectionery and chocolates. Don’t count your calories here as the fragrance of pure ghee will definitely urge you to forget about your diet restrictions!
