Dining out not just for the food but for the overall experience has been one of my passions as a foodie. I love eating out with my family or friends and have had the opportunity of eating at several establishments across India, UAE and a few other countries during my overseas trips. I thought it would benefit my readers if I showcased the food that I enjoy irrespective of whether it was a meal on a budget or something more elaborate. Under this segment I will review food that was eaten as part as a review requested by the restaurant that invited me to dine (full disclosure of which will be mentioned at the bottom of each post) or something I wrote purely for my own records. Readers are requested to use their discretion while dining at such establishments as my views are purely based on my own experiences.
