Are you a foodie?
Though the term is used loosely now, I (and people who know me well) would call me one.
What’s your favourite cuisine?
See that's a tough one for a foodie, actually there isn't any kind of food I don't like. But favourites could be Indian ( so many varieties there itself between generic North Indian and Bengali and Coastal ) and Thai . I love Pizza too!
What’s the last place that you went to in Bangalore that you really enjoyed? What did you eat there that stood out?
A few places come to mind:
Toast & Tonic - Their Pork dishes are fabulous, Meenu Ootada Mane - Best Ghee roast ever. Brik Oven - Definitely the best Pizza in Bangalore. Shivaji Military -Their Kalmi Kababs and Donne Biryani
What is your least favourite dish?
Idli and Upma
