Favourite Foods And Memorable Eating Places.


That is a typical South Indian meal served on a plantain leaf which would rank as my all time favourite food.

I hope that my fellow 6/1 bloggers Conrad and Shackman get an opportunity to try that experience.

Having been on expense account travelling jobs during my working days, I had enough opportunity to eat in some of the world’s most well known restaurants and more so within India. I have also been blessed with so many friends all over who insisted on feeding me home cooked meals that it will be impossible for me to list all those as well as choose the most memorable except for the few cases right in the beginning of my sales career in rural India when I had to visit villages and towns without restaurants and so the local customers hosted me meals in their homes. Those experiences are simply unforgettable and I can hold forth on them for hours if opportunity presents itself.

I live in Pune which is famous for its street and restaurant food and during my younger and working days, I could gorge myself on street food and never have home cooked meals for days together other than break fast of course. Here is a look at some of the food in my home town.

Those days are gone now and I don’t relish eating out any more. I prefer meeting my friends for lunch at my local club which is centrally located and convenient for all to reach with plenty of parking space too. The club serves different cuisines, many types of Indian, Continental and Chinese and so the guests have a variety of choices. I normally satisfy myself with a soup, a couple of sandwiches and an ice cream to finish off the meal. My major meal has been breakfast now for many years and lunch the only other meal that I have is a small in quantity affair.

I hope that I have generated enough curiosity and interest in my taste in food for my readers to try out some and if it is Pune that they would like to try, I would be delighted to host them.

This is my take on this week’s Friday 6 On 1 blog post topic. The other five bloggers who write on the same topic every Friday are Sanjana, PadmumRaju, Shackman and Conrad.  This week’s topic was suggested by Padmum. Please do go over to their respective blogs to see what they have to say on the topic. Thank you.

  1. I was fortunate in Toronto where I tried so many different Indian dishes both in homes and in restaurants. I have a passion for it all. Presentation is everything. Love the small bowls of delicacies, etc. Here on the Rock we have a few Indian places. Most remarkably India Gate which does a lovely job in non-Covid times. but lately some new ones – curbside delivery =have opened up.

    1. I bet that all of them have reduced the spices that are normally used over here! In any case, I am happy that you do get Indian food there and wish you bon appetit.

    1. Cooking Indian food is quite simple not that all masalas are available in packaged form. In the old days, they were freshly ground every day and that took quite a lot of time.

  2. I have so many favourite foods I’d be listing them for hours. I like Indian food, Thai food, Italian food, New Zealand food, all sorts. I always like to try new foods I haven’t tasted before. Of course many of my favourite meals are Jenny’s recipes, usually tweaked from recipes in vegan and vegetarian cook books.

    My most memorable eating places would be places with a spectacular view. Like the dining room in a Venice hotel we stayed at once, which had a great view over the Grand Canal.
