Gastronomic indulgence :)

Being a visitor to home once a year , one simply has to satisfy their taste buds at all costs.. esp. when you miss good food for a long period of time.. In Norway, only Indian food that is easily available is Punjabi tandoori cuisine.. and if you come from South India like I do, then you would miss good south Indian food a whole lot.. so my only chance is when I come home.. which is once a year.. so the days when i wasn't eating Mum's home made food... I went on a rampage in the city.. :).. Those idlis, dosas, vadas, appam, chaat and the list goes on...

some of the places that satisfied my appetite are...
1. Cream Corner @ RA Puram (just around the corner from my place)
2. Sin city @ Alwarpet (Choc and ice cream corner)
3. Sanjeevanam @ Adyar (Health food concept - Kerala Style)
4. South Indies @ Indire Nagar in Bangalore.. (Interesting mix of dishes from all 4 south Indian states)
5. Usuals like Saravanas, Sangeetha, Gangothri chat corner, Fruit shop...

Its always quite a thing to look forward to eating good food at home and in your favourite restaurants that you grew up with... and its always sad feeling when you have to go back and that you will miss it until the next trip.... umm.. this too shall pass.. !
Now I have to start thinking about how to get rid of all the calories gained... hehe... like thats going to happen :)
