Taaja's is an old favorite of most Calcuttans. Recently shifted from Ballygunge to Jodhpur Park, Taaja's makes some of the best vegan food in the city. Try the Khao Suey here- Taaja's was one of the first restaurants to serve this Burmese inspired dish when most Calcuttans hadn't even heard of it. If you love coconut milk like I do, you will love this soupy noodle dish.
The thing that makes Khao Suey so much fun is the interactive nature of the soup. Khao Suey traditionally comes with many little bowls of lemon wedges, roasted garlic flakes, crispy noodles, chopped coriander, chopped onion and red chilli powder or red chilli flakes. Add in these toppings for a hot spicy bowl of intense flavor- as salty garlic, heaty chilli, tangy lemon, crunchy noodles and creamy coconut play in alternate rhythms on your taste buds.
