    Hotel Shalimar.

    As I learn from people that there are only two good eating place in Chandarnagore! One is this one Shalimar and the other is Rasoi. This was a Residence of some French Businessman it got sold over the year. Now it houses a restaurant.

    I did not go inside to check the food or prices but took the picture from the car just to give an idea to our fellow tourist about the hotel. This place is located on the main throughfare of the town.

    Recently on 11th May we had a chance to revisit Chandannagore to attend 1st Rice Ceremony( It's a Bengali custom when the baby is given rice for the first time, just like Baptism, in Christianity a baby is not born Christian a in Hinduism a baby is considered born Hindu, it's called " Annaprasan", Anna means grain in Sanskrit and prasan means to feed in Sanskrit) of my collegue Rajiv Bannerjee's son.

    However, whad a chance to taste their catering and it was very nice Bengali food to the core. But since the temperature outside was around 40 degrees centigrade, we could not savor their delicacy. Though the smoked Hilsa, Mutton Roganjosh and Prawn Malai curry tasted heavenly!

    This place is situated just on the bank of the Ganges next to the Residency, which is now called the French Museum and the house of Tagore. This small but clean restaurant offers very tasty food at very resonable price. They will also make anything special you want but only Indian in case you allow them sufficient time. The staffs are not very well trained as they mostly cater to the local crowd but serves with smiles, which makes up for everything.

    We were told that they make good Biryani, so we had Chicken Biryani and Mutton Korma and Thums Up. We had beer cans purchased from Kolkata, we had it in the car as Rasoi do not have a Bar licence. The food was really excellent! The price!!! We had it for Rs200/- or about US$5. Is nt' that cheap!!

    Their proprietor Mr.Sudarshan Mohapatra ( ph: +91-933082941) will make your day if you call him in advance and place your order while leaving from Kolkata!
