Not Delhi Or Mumbai, But This Indian City Made It To World’s Best Food List 2023

The debate over which Indian city serves the best food is unending. While some say it’s Delhi, some others argue it’s Mumbai. A few others claim it’s Ahmedabad. But we bumped into a global list which says that Kolkata is one of the best cities for food in the world. And why not? When it comes to food, Kolkata stands out from the rest with its own set of lip-smacking options. Puchka lovers, we see your eyes sparking!

Kolkata Ranked Among The Cities Serving World’s Best Street Food

Kolkata is a true paradise for ardent foodies with a plethora of options like phuchka, kathi roll, fish fry, ghoti gorom, bhel puri, ghugni chaat, Mughlai parathas, shingaras ( crispy aloo and matar infused Kolkata samosas), beguni, teley bhaja, kabiraji, aloo kabli and even desi Chinese. Also, mind you, phuchka isn’t same as pani puri or gol gappa. The thin, crispy flour balls loaded with mashed potatoes, choley, tamarind chutney, and sweet chutney are simply irresistible.
