Eating in Kalyani
On another note, Kalyani is not about star restaurants and eating within the closed confines of a multi-storied hotel. As the Chairman of Kalyani Municipality has pointed out, it’s about celebrating the verdant and pristine beauty of Kalyani through unconventional tourism like eating its indigenous Bengali cuisines amidst tribal folkore and music rather than noveau international delicacies. So celebrate its local life by partaking in fish curry and rice for lunch. Enjoy its open spaces under a starlit sky with the flow of wine and barbeque chicken for dinner.
