When asked “Why do I Travel?” My top two reasons, are to experience a different culture whilst soak up all the memories and for a foodie like me, it goes without saying, savour the local cuisine.
Bangalore has always stood out as a multi faceted city, a food lovers delight, if you ask me, as we have a number of restaurants always trying to come up with innovative and festive ways to tickle our taste buds. One such restaurant, needs no further introduction and is a trendy and chic, Asian Gastro bar, top favorite of mine which I frequent – The Fatty Bao. Turning two this month, the celebrations are in full swing. What does it mean for us Foodies? We get a delightful travel tale via an adventure of exciting local dishes and inventive cocktails inspired by the flavours of East and South East Asia aptly named “Fatty’s Travel Tales.”
