    Kolkata IS famous for Aloo(potato) in biriyani, but the shop is keeping the Lucknow tradition alive.
    Trivia: The last king of lucknow was imprisoned by the British and sent to Kolkata, his chefs experimented with the potato and made it a part of Kolkata's biriyani.

    The kebab is creamy because they use raw papaya as a tenderizer. The papaya can make a mush out of the most tough piece of meat.

    MANNNNNNN! I was so excited to see you eat momos! Chilli momos are great but you gotta try some of the steamed momos from Delhi! (Which is by the way THE place to eat, especially momos!) The spicy sauce coupled with the great chicken filling it heavenly. MAN! You gotta come to Delhi, hit this comment up and for sure, I'll show you the most amazing places to eat.

    can i just say that mike's "luchi" and "kosha mangsho" pronunciation was on point. and for people confusing luchi with bhature , luchi is just almost basic flour dough where as bhature is a bit more complicated recipe with more ingredients in it. and for the biryani, awadhi biryani dont have potato and egg in it, these are specialities of kolkata style biryani mostly. and yes it got a bit uncomfortable 23:35...but glad it tastes good. and of course we should eat the way we want to . :)
