MD of Bonsouth, Southindies and Upsouth
What is your first memory of Onam sadhya?
My first memory of Onam food is back in 2007 when Chef Venkatesh Bhat hosted a wonderful Onam lunch at Southindies in our first year of operation. It was a great memory where we had a host of customers walking in. Ever since we host an elaborate Onam feast in all our restaurants and I look forward to this time of the year every year.
Where and when have you had the best?
I might sound biased but I have honestly enjoyed Onam food in Southindies the most. :)
What is one dish from Kerala that everyone should try?
Avial is a favourite. I also love Appams with Stew or Kadala Curry.
Which other cuisines do you personally like?
I love Italian and Oriental food.
Which restaurants in Bangalore are best for that?
I am a big fan of Toscano, Shiro and Fatty Bao. They do justice to the cuisines that I like.
