Are you a foodie?
Of course I’m a foodie.
What’s your favourite cuisine?
Asian. Thai and Vietnamese.
What’s the last place that you went to in Bangalore that you really enjoyed? What did
you eat there that stood out?
Mamagoto. The food was good but I thought it was too expensive.
Ginseng also has good food.
What’s your favourite dish of all time and where did you eat it?
My go to dish is always Thai Green Curry. But the best dish I have eaten is ostrich steak that I
had in Botswana. Medium rare with garlic butter and mushroom sauce.
I also like the Rajma Chawal my mom makes.
What is your least favourite dish?
I may be allergic to jackfruit but I still eat it. I like most foods as long as it’s cooked well.
If you have to recommend a place to our readers what will it be?
Ginseng and Limelight. There is this amazing corn dish. It’s either Thai or Chinese. It’s some
batter fried corn kernels with vegetables and stuff. They obviously have some fancy name for it
that I can’t remember.
