1. Tell us about your background and journey.

Post finishing high school in 2015, I used to visit a lot of cafes/ food joints with my friends. But then college started and i got busy with my studies, so a friend randomly suggested me to start a food page/blog in 2017, considering we used to eat out every single day and it was then i started reading about it, knowing how everything works and following the people who were then famous. And i started my page in August, 2017 then.

2. Which is your favorite cuisine and dish?

My favorite cuisine is Asian Cuisine without a doubt. But my favorite dish has to be Chole Bathure, can have them every single day and still not get bored of them.

3. Should food blogging be just a passion or can it become a regular career?

You can do it both ways. If you want to make a career out of it, you have to bring something new, innovative on the table or else you'll simply lose out. Also, you have to be passionate in order to survive. You have to learn different cuisines, try them out, visit new places and build an audience alongside.

4. Which restaurants/food joints would you recommend to food lovers?

I am honestly a big fan of street food and definitely recommend everyone to try out famous street food joints in Old Delhi. When it comes to restaurants, Yum Yum Cha, Burma Burma, Gulatis are some of my all time favorites.

5. What makes you appreciate a particular dish or a restaurant and talk about it on your blog?

If I ever come across a dish that is innovative, has a story behind it or is associated with local place, i surely share it on my page. A good experience at any restaurant, be it the hospitality or the food, i want more and more people to try it out.

6. Is there a dish you particularly associate yourself with?

Umm, honestly i don't. I will surely think about it now!

7. Which is your favorite book and why?

My favorite books have to be the last two books i read, Good Vibes Good Life by Vex King and How to Win Friends and Influence People because i got to learn so much about how to live life in the present day scenario, deal with friend and family.
