Bhushan Oberoi Likes Food With Soul And Thought

Bhushan Oberoi legendary restaurateur and founder of Casa Piccola is a true blue Bangalorean. Anyone who would walk miles for a taste of Koshy’s has got to be. In conversation with Explocity.


Are you a foodie?

Yes I am but who is not I wonder...​


What’s your favourite cuisine?

​I prefer European food but ready to try any food which has "soul & thought " in it. The gros-oozy & monstrous quantities of food is not for me.


What’s the last place that you went to in Bangalore that you really enjoyed? What did you eat there that stood out?

​Prem Koshy's at St. Marks Road. The Fish Moly has not changed over 25 years. I would walk miles to eat it once in a while.


What’s your favourite dish of all time and where did you eat it?

​​Very difficult question...but right now it is "Strangolapreti​". These are Ricotta & Spinach nochis. It seems some priest ate so many that he choked on them in Italy. Hence the name. Our friend Ingrid on Lake Garda should win a nobel for this.


What is your least favourite dish?

Mashed bananas. Or any banana.


If you have to recommend a place to our readers what will it be?

The Red Fork in Indiranagar​. Pity Xerxes, the owner, is going away - the Australians have lured him away.
