Restaurant Review: Koshe Kosha

This week I am back again with another restaurant review.

After a lunch outside on my hubby's birthday, we decided to venture out once again on Eid.

This time the hubby man chose Koshe Kosha, the authentic Bengali "bhuri-bhoj" joint. The main outlet of Koshe Kosha is near Golpark, but we went to the Salt Lake outlet.
Koshe Kosha
FE-18, Ground Floor, Opposite Central Park,
Fourth Avenue Rd, FE Block,
Sector III, Salt Lake,
Kolkata, West Bengal 700106
 Pocket pinch for two: INR 650 - 700 approx

The interiors of this restaurant was done up the authentic Bengali way. A big palm leaf fan adorned one of the walls. The other walls were tastefully decorated with Jamini Roy paintings and woven baskets. But the lighting was very low, so my photography was not as good as it should have been.
We ordered for two starters: Begun bhaja (fried eggplant) and Aam aadaar chop (INR 45). The Begun bhaja was humungous in size. It was crispy on the outside and soft inside...done just right! The Aam aadaar chop is a speciality of this joint and it was truly yummy though a bit too spicy for my little one who staunchly refused to eat it.

For the main course, we ordered the following:

Steamed rice (INR 70)
Sona Muger dal (INR 80)
Kochi Paanthar jhol - tender mutton curry (INR 265)
Dhakai manghso: Mutton cooked with a recipe from Dhaka(INR 235 approx, I dont remember it too well)
Basanti Pulao (INR 115)
Anarosher (pineapple) chutney (INR 60)

The Sona Muger Dal was extremely delicious but the Kochi Paanthar jhol was a dissappointment. We had ordered this dish for little S, but none of us liked it. The mutton was tender, but the gravy/jhol was not flavourful.
The Dhakai Mangsho was spicy and quite tasty.

My little one fell in love with the Basanti Pulao and Anarosher chutney and she would not eat anything else. 

I also came to know that they have take-away system. They serve a number of snacks in the evening such as a variety of cutlets.

In a nutshell, you can visit this joint of an evening to have some snacks with friends. A lunch/dinner with family is also not ruled out but you have to select the menu items carefully.
