If there’s one thing that unites all Indians, it’s the ardent love for street food. We can’t resist gobbling on Puchkas or Golgappas, savouring Chole Bhature, crispy pakoras, kebabs, Gobi Manchurian and whatnot. And if you ever were to ask us about our favourite street food, it’s got to be Puchkas. Call it Puchkas, Pani Puri, Golgappas or whatever you want, it’s just delicious. Having a mouthful of Gol Gappa is experiencing crunchy, sweet, spicy, chatapata, flavours all in one. And if your mouth is already watering for Puchkas, then let’s tell you something interesting. We have found a new eatery in Kolkata, called Puchkaman which serves you fusion flavoured Puchkas and street food from around the world. Puchkman is here to save you from unhealthy and unhygienic street food, so you can gorge on your favourite puchkas without any hesitation.
What’s In It?
Puchkaman opened its first outlet in Kolkata in October 2019. The catchy name has a crazier tagline ‘Street Food Ka Superhero’. Over time they have spread across the city and have outlets in Dum Dum, Behala and Lake Market Area. Puchkaman.
The quaint food joint has a welcoming ambience with bright yellow, green and red colours adorning the place. It’s a great place to hang out with your gang, bonding over not only puchkas but over global street food as well.
Before we come to the food, here’s something that will also pique your interest. Puchkaman has a unique kitchen garden concept. They use fresh, organic ingredients like tomato and coriander for garnishing their dishes. When you visit here, you might be even given a sapling to encourage you to plant trees. Interesting right?
