Park St Restaurants: ...

Park Street is a road that comes off from Chowringhee Road a few hundred meters south of the Indian Museum. Back in the 1960's it was considered to be Kolkata's answer to Soho and today still has many glitzy restuarants and western chain fast food chains such as KFC, McDonalds, Subway and Pizza Hut. Park Street is about a 10-15 minute walk away from Sudder Street and I do recommend coming here at least one even if you're on a tight budget just to sample what's on offer. Unfortunately I was ill during my stay in Kolkata and for the first couple of days hardly ate anything. I decided on my third day to have a KFC as it would be food that I was familar with and that my stomach probably needed. My last night was spent in a rather posh Chinese restaurant on the corner of Park Street and Mirza Ghalib St where I ate everything and felt much better for it afterwards. It was a shame as I was looking forward to sampling some of the local cuisine but my stomach just wouldn't take it.
