    yes thats right.

    pani-puri = mumbai and south india

    gol - guppa = same thing in north india/hindi belt

    in calcutta its called by neither of these 2 names though - its called "phuchka" and that i guess is due to the phuchk-ing sound that comes when the vendor breaks it to put the stuffing inside.

    @asmo... i'll be going to going to darjeeling and sikkim soon too - lets exchange notes. i want to see the lakes of sikkim.

    As a confirmed poll-o-phille i can only hope that the original poster/ thread starter will hold a poll - of the best Kolkata food - rosso-golla OR mishti doi OR phuchka OR sandesh OR jhal mudi OR kati roll (though samantha aka pamela dont yet know what it is!!) OR what-have-you

    do it Asmo !!

    Ha... I dont like posting thread such... atleast now...
    And I already know of all these food-stuff.. likeI said, I'm a bengali... So, like, I know what to eat and savour there. Looking forward to Kosha Manhsho, Doi Chingdi... and Dhokar Dalna... mustard-oil cooked food... I like..

    BTW, What's to see in Gangtok?
