You may remember this delicious Indian street food stall that I wrote about a few weeks ago. And finally, here’s the video.

Camamc Street is a business office street in the heart of Kolkata, India, and everyday for lunch people pour out of their jobs looking for a delicious satisfying meal.

Nope, I didn’t come from the office, but I was ready for lunch, that’s for sure.

I chose a rice and curry stall that served specifically Bengali food. I was first served a nice plate of rice which was then topped with catfish curry, some cauliflower, and daal on the side.

The food was flavorful and the ambiance was pretty fun too!

    Hi Mark my family and I too love Kolkata street life. We’ll be heading back in Dec 2013 and looking forward to all the early morning chai and the bhaji with luchi served on leaf plates! Your videos are the best I’ve seen from a fellow foodie!

    Curry with Rice is the staple food in most parts of India. I love the humble daal chawal (curry rice) and curd rice too 🙂

    I kind of, sort of travel to eat. Is that bad? Love reading about good food as a second choice to actually eating it. The pictures and video made me hungry.
