There are people who take pride in calling themselves as ‘foodie’. Of course, I am one of them. But, of late I have had a change of opinion. I have come to believe that there is a foodie in each one of us. Every person has their own favorite dishes, restaurants, recipes, cooking methods etc. In that sense, everyone has got a ‘food lover’ in them.
Do you feel bored at eating out at the same places or you don’t know which restaurants are popular in your locality? Have you moved to a new city and wondered where to eat or which cuisines are popular there? Or do you want to know how good the new restaurant in your area is?
I lived in North Madras when I was a kid. My late grandpa used to visit us whenever he came to the city. In those years the inter-city bus terminus was opposite to Madras High Court in North Madras. During his visits, he used to buy some snacks at a particular shop on the NSC Bose Road before coming to our house. A regular item in those snacks is a packet of few big samosas. I liked those samosas so much that I always used to look forward to eating it whenever I came to know that grandpa is to visit us. On one visit my grandpa took me to that snack shop. My mouthwatering started immediately on seeing those samosas.
