Eat again shoppe

An abarkhabo store sells snacks and sweets.  Hence, its meaning “eat again.”  Here in Cal, Gupta Brothers is one of two that are regarded by locals like my friend Mukund.  They sell an assortment of  Indian as well as typical Bengali taste treats (Calcutta is the capital of the state of West Bengal.)  Snacks range from savory combinations like cheese, potato, bell pepper, corn and tomato pastries and breads, to saffron and cardamom-laced sweet cheese and yogurt desserts, as well as dried fruit, nut and seed dotted cookies made of almond paste with silver leaf embellishments.  With no labels in the display cases, it’s been a challenge figuring out what’s in each, let alone what they are called.  I’ll try to ask Mukund’s mom later on so I can provide captions…










  1. WOW. Yummy. Can’t wait to hear all the fasinating stories, and maybe taste new flavours? See you in Miami.. Lily B.
