The Shop was started in 1885 as a tiny makeshift shop in an upcoming locality of that time – Bhowanipur. The Official website says that Asutosh Mukerjee, among many others, used to be a regular here.
There is a huge counter of usual & many unusual sweets in this shop. By usual I mean the ones that u get in all other places as well.
Within the unusual there are some traditional forgotten sweets like monda, & also new innovated fusion sweets like chocolate sandesh etc. The chocolate sandesh that we had today was soft (norom paak), had molten chocolate in the center & also had chocolate chips all over.
Our favourites are the traditional nolen gur sandeshes of different shapes, size & textures (norom paak, kora paak etc).
Love the baked rosogolla here – really unique.
Sitafaler payesh was very good & so was chhana pora.
Rosogollas are good too but not the best in town.
In summers, they serve mango sandesh & Kathhal (jackfruit) sandesh as well.
