Discovering the delights of good food!!

Wednesday, April 01, 2009Me! In words

When my mother sees me at the dining table these days, she really feels very proud of me. I was the type of child who refused to eat. Each meal was a long drawn affair. I was so notorious in the family when it came to eating that almost everybody had told my mom that they would do anything for me but would not want the task of feeding me. 

There was nothing that I liked, not even the customary chocolates and ice creams. But that was all years ago. I guess I became accustomed to good food because my mother is an accomplished cook. She even has two cookbooks that did rocking business to her credit. Her penchant for experimenting with food is what started me off I guess. I left home to live in the hostel in Manipal for two years and that's why my palate was introduced to a whole range of new tastes. Manipal is a place of several nationalities and there was something for everyone there. 
That was also the place I met Sudhakar and he is also a great foodie. In fact his favourite quip is "I will eat anything as long as it does not eat me. I doubt there was a single place in Manipal that we did not eat at and a single dish that we did not experiment with. I will dedicate an entire post to this gastronomic delight of a place. 
This blog was something I had decided to start a while ago. Of course, I do not claim to be a well versed food critic. The idea is simply to tell you where we have eaten and what we have eaten. If you like it you could always try the place. If you want more options you could always get in touch with us. 
Needless to say that the opinions are all mine and that of my palate. So if you have liked something I have not... well good for you!!!
