Hello, wanderers and food lovers!
I’m Amir, a passionate traveler and gourmand who’s traversed every nook and cranny of India, from the snowy peaks of Leh to the sunny shores of Kanyakumari. Over the years, my travels have been driven by two things – my love for India’s rich tapestry of cultures and an insatiable hunger for the country’s diverse palate.
While many travel for scenic views, historical sites, or thrilling adventures, my compass has always pointed towards the best cafés, iconic restaurants, and hidden food joints that serve up the soul of India on a plate.
Why I Began This Culinary Odyssey
My journey began with a simple piqued interest in the kitchens of my family and neighbors. This curiosity swiftly transformed into an obsession as I started exploring the labyrinthine streets of India, each corner revealing a new flavor, a new story. From sipping a perfectly brewed cup of Irani chai in a vintage café in Hyderabad, to savoring a fragrant biryani in the heart of Lucknow, every place left an indelible mark on my taste buds and heart.
What I’ve Discovered
This blog is not just a testament to India’s vast culinary scene, but also the tales behind these meals. I’ve dined with locals, learnt age-old family recipes, and understood the history that influences what’s served on our plates. Whether it’s the influence of the Mughals on North Indian cuisine or the Portuguese on Goan dishes, every bite tells a story.
In my travels, I’ve not only tasted, but I’ve also experienced:
- The tranquility of early morning breakfasts at old-world cafés in Pondicherry.
- The rush of the Mumbai local eateries, bustling even at midnight.
- The serenity of sipping a herbal tea in a quaint café overlooking the Himalayas in Dharamshala.
- The spice markets of Delhi where every scent promises a new adventure.
So whether you’re a seasoned traveler, a budding foodie, or someone just looking for recommendations for your next meal in any corner of India, this blog is your go-to guide. I promise to transport you to the very place and moment I experienced, all from the comfort of your screen.
