Doodh-Fanta in Kolkata - Much more than just Doodh and Fanta

When we were in Kolkata Sohail from 'The Beacon' took us on Night tour of the city and ourfirst stop was Kolkata's famous Doodh-Fanta. The name is not thatexciting but both  Vibha and I were excited to try new thing in thecity. This post shares more about Doodh(Milk)-Fanta of Kolkata.From Bikers Cafe,we drove to Balwant Singh Dhaba, Bhawanipur. It was around 10:30pm andthere was huge queue of cars outside the dhaba. There were lot of folkson the road who were taking order. While sitting in the car, we alsoordered a Doodh-Fanta. After few minutes, we were given a jug of Doodh-Fanta and few bhats (earthen cups). Sohail served us the drink in Kulhad(bhat) . After first sip, I realized that it is very different than what I imagined. A cold mild with a very different flavor and in orange color. Definitely Fanta was not the prominent flavor, which I liked. Milk has subtle fruity taste with very nice flavor. It seems, no one knowns the recipe. I would say that drink was not very impressive. It's not like I would crave for it, but it's not bad at all. A nice drink and probably you would fall in love if you drink it more often. It takes time to develop taste for any drink. After having 3 cups of Doodh-Fanta, we went out to check the place and they were also selling tea. There were lot of people around the counter to get token for tea. I loved the environment around this street - lot of cars parked and people enjoying Doodh-Fanta and services in car. Few discussions about Doodh-Fanta on Facebook - Later on Sohail told us about 7 such places in Kolkata where you get a very different experience of food/drinks.
