Experience Kolkata’s Tiretta Bazar that serves authentic Chinese breakfast where you can taste dim sums, Thai Pows, fish soups, and much more!
What Is It?
Tiretta Bazar in Kolkata is the hub of all the authentic Chinese delicacies that all of us so adore. Calcutta is the only city in India to have a “China Town” and hence, you can imagine the influence of the local Chinese population on food.
The breakfast market stays open every morning from as early as 6 in the morning and runs out of food well within 8 am. The food is served by the local Chinese community and is a hundred percent authentic Chinese.
What’s In It?
Located at an otherwise indistinguishable street in Tiretti, this bazaar is the result of the Chinese population settling in Kolkata from as early as the 1780s. One can find dim sums, momos, fish soups, Thai Pao, sticky rice, Su Mei(pork/chicken pie), noodles, and more along with Chinese knick-knacks like prawn crackers.
All of these are sold at street-side make-shift stalls. The prices range from ₹20 to ₹80. You can also find authentic Chinese medieval medicine. However, if you’re very conscious of hygiene, you may only have to enjoy the sight of all this delicious food.
