Kolkata, as a city, has always held a sort of old world charm for me, with the tradition haath gadi and trams still prevalent…and the one thing that leaves me watered is…the sweets. The traditional Bengali sweets too have one stop shop! Mishti Hub is your sweet desires coming to life!
Structured to provide your one stop traditional Bengali sweet obsession to satiation…24×7! 10 of the oldest and the most reputed sweet brands find home here. The likes of brands as Balaram Mullick and Radharaman Mullick and Ganguram sweets and KC Das have already grabbed their spaces here. theses names fit perfectly here as being the most coveted sweets brands, they fall appropriately within the old Kolkata charm that the interiors entail….with glass walls and iron wall murals that are reminiscent of everything that old Kolkata carries.
Just off the Biswa Bangla Sarani, on the way to the Airport on the VIP road bound flank, the hub is located near gate number 3, proposed and developed by HIDCO (Housing Infrastructure Development corporation). The location has been strategically picked to make it a definite stop enroute the airport to get your fill of Bengali sweets.
But setting shop here isn’t all that a give away….only brands that have carved a niche for themselves and have been prevalent for over 25 years, have been allotted spaces. Preference has been deservedly given to older names over comparatively newer ones. Apart from the individual outlets, the Mishti Hub is slated to also set counters for traditional Bengali Burdwan’s mihidana, Krishnagore’s Sarpuriya and Shaktigarh’s lyangcha.
The hub has been allotted a parking lot as well, in anticipation of the furore this place is expected to create, especially for travelers and visitors to the city.
