Kolkata is known for its Mishit Doi, Rasgulla, songs, and culture. But did you know that it is also famous for its 5:00 am morning market? If not, visit the Territy Bazar-small Chinese town of Kolkata. As its name suggests, the area not only provides delicious Chinese food but also protects the national heritage of Chinese immigrants.
Real food is not available very early in Kolkata(about 6 AM).
That is until you reach Territy Bazaar (also known as Trinity or Trinity), an interesting route in Chinese but Indian at the same time. If you want to have a truly satisfying breakfast, the market opens at 5.00 AM.
