A cup of garam-chai is the energy source for every Indian for years and decades. A small tea stall outside a school, a college, and an office is what people first search for. Nothing can ever quench an Indian’s thirst like a cup of tea. When in Kolkata, Bengali’s love for ‘dudh-cha’ is unconditional. And when hungry, they accompany the cup of tea with biscuits or malai toast. Office goers working near the Kolkata stock exchange have to visit these places for malai toast and tea. These are so delicious and so soul-soothing.

Malai Toast And Tea In ‘Kona Dukan’ Is A Must!

Right at the centre of the crowd near the Kolkata stock exchange, Kona Dukan is a go-to eatery for every office goer. The crowd is crazy for this place and we completely agree with the customers running to this place every day. Their malai toast is the most famous and loved by hundreds and thousands. Running for 77 years, this food stall got its name only recently. The place has been running popularly since the beginning but it never had a name. So, the present generation running the shop gave the place the name ‘Kona Dukan’ in 2017.
