We all have that secret hideout or a vendor who is the answer to our prayers for food. These people are equivalent to the sun that shines through your dark days of low balance in the ATM. They provide you delicious food at a rate dear to your heart thus making them more loved than your beloved. Kolkata is full of such people and they help keep Kolkatans happy.
One such is Kishan bhai, who works his miracles in the heart of the city. Kishan Bhai has won hearts with his spectacular south Indian dishes. These dishes are loved by all, not for their authenticity but for their innovation.
Kishan Bhai sets up his stall everyday during lunch hour. Smartly placed under an abandoned bill board at the end of Hunger Ford Street near St. Xavier’s College, this place is the secret lunch haunt of all the Xavierites and the people working in the adjoining offices. Even if you miss the street or the bill board, you can recognize his stall by the huge crowd hanging out around the stall. The stall is conveniently located opposite Arun Tea stall.
Though the menu is crisp and comprises of mainly three items; dosa, uttapam and idli; Kishan Bhai is famous for the innovation he dishes out with every single item on his menu. There are several variants of dosa available of which cheese dosa is the reason why Kishan Bhai has attained his fame. The cheese filled dosa is more tempting than any double cheese burst pizza ever featured by an advertorial of Pizza Hut or Dominoes. The reason? Kishan Bhai’s dosa is lovingly and generously filled with loads of cheese. You can feel the cheese ooze out every time you tear a part of it or bite into it. There are several takers for the spiced up Uttapam served with a special spicy chutney as well.
If you are wondering as to the amount charged for the generosity of the cheese then you need not worry. It is just a meager Rs.35. far less than what a small pan pizza will charge you. In fact every item on the menu is under 50. When you visit Kolkata, stay in a conveniently located 14Square Serviced Apartment and have a lovely meal below Rs. 50 at Kishan Bhai’s stall.
