Seedz Beanz N Aroma 294, Jodhpur Park, Jodhpur Park, Kolkata As one of the more popular Hookah joints in Kolkata, Seedz Beanz N Aroma may not be the most authentic spot, but it certainly satisfies. This place is exactly what Hookah lovers needed. I loved the atmosphere. Much better than any other hookah bar, which […]

Hatari 113/1B, Rash Behari Avenue, Near Triangular Park, Rash Behari Avenue, Kolkata Hatari is a favourite when it comes to sating those Oriental cravings. As most dishes cost very cheap, this is definitely the place to feast without breaking the bank. One thing that attract me to visit this place is their Special Oriental Cuisine. […]

Straits 105, S P Mukherjee Road, Rash Behari Avenue Crossing, Kolkata   It takes a lot for me to give a seafood restaurant anything but a stellar review since I love seafood – but I just didn’t have a great experience at ‘Straits’. Me and my friend went to ‘Straits’ with ‘Groupon’ voucher for 2 […]

  Go Lebanese 200, Sarat Bose Road, Southern Avenue, Kolkata     If you think you’re rather well-acquainted with Lebanese food, allow the unique, lip-smacking food at Go Lebanese to open your eyes.

1915940_101100699948573_1759232_nRajdeep Bhattacharjee wears many feathers in his cap. A ravenous eater, a thirsty drinker, an enthusiastic traveller and a very sound sleeper – Rajdeep, once a wannabe hacker and now a Government employee, is an aspiring food critic and travel blogger. He hates the loose use of the word 'foodie' and prefers, instead, the expression 'food devotee'. For him, good food and honest people are the biggest motivators.

He is the founder of Gourmets Travel Guide, a website devoted completely to food and travel. Rajdeep is an avid blogger and one can find many of his sojourns aptly expressed on the website www.gourmetstravelguide.com.

Rajdeep had been recently chosen by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) to board the inaugural flight from Kolkata to Bangkok (TG – 336) and received accolades for wonderfully recounting the experience, from start to finish, in his blog. In fact, his travelogue was featured in Hangla Hneshel, one of India's foremost Bengali magazine dedicated completely to food and travel. Rajdeep doesn't stop there! One of his undersea walks also got featured in The Telegraph, one of India's leading dailies. He is also one of the chief curators and a selector for chefs and restaurants for Channel One's Resto Ranna episodes.

Zomato ranks Rajdeep among the top ten food connoisseurs in the city. He has also been ranked number 5 and 6, in this year's Network 18 and Burrp surveys respectively, as one of the discerning food critics in the country.

Rajdeep loves eating out at different restaurants. A true blue Bengali at heart and gut, experimenting with food and palates come naturally to him. And he doesn't mind leaving an endearing word or two for chefs who have displayed their talents on the plate and the restaurant management for the inviting ambiance of an eatery.

Rajdeep counts is as his forte the wonderful rapport he shares with different media houses. Thus his writings have already been picked up by top food journals and news dailies apart from the exposure he has to talk about them on social media. Reputation management of his clients come naturally to him be it on the virtual platform or in print.

He has been blogging for the last three years. When he is not writing on food and travel or working as a Government employee, you can most certainly catch him with a camera slung around his neck and travel gear ready to satisfy his inner wanderlust.
