The Ice-cream Sandesh of this legendary sweet shop is to die for. Since my childhood have seen them grow in stature and quality as impeccable as ever. Yes , many new variations as per modern age has crept in , but, OLD is GOLD

They have maintained their standards over the years. The best part is that they have retained the traditional preparations. Though they too have got into some fusion sweets like their competition, the preparations are not so drastic and the flavors are still subtle.

"The green-grilled mishti shop at 56 Ramdulal Street is simply called Nakur, short and (very) sweet. Peering through the iron, glasses perched on his nose, Victor picks up one of their best-selling items, Jol Bhora Norom Pak, gives them a thumbs up, and gulps down the sandesh. From a two-item menu consisting of Kada Pak and Monda back in 1844, to 2010 where Chocolate Sandesh can compete for the number one spot, Nakur has come a long way." -- The Telegraph.
