Working Hard, Investing Time and Focusing on Your Content Is Really Important - Manvi

The first thing that I notice in a dish is the flavours. If the dish tastes good, I'll feature it on my page. 

1. Tell us about your background and journey

Hi, I am Manvi, the Chief Eating Officer (CEO) at Foodelicious Mumbai. We all have that friend who clicks pictures of food before eating it, well, I'm that friend. Phone gallery filled with food and a passion to create something of my own made me start with this page about 2.5 years ago. 

I'm a part-time content creator and a full-time foodie who loves experimenting with new recipes. My page showcases a variety of delicious food from in and around the city and also some really easy and interesting recipes. We've recently hit a 15k milestone. 

2. Which is your favourite cuisine and dish?

I am quite fond of North Indian cuisine. I love the variety and the flavours it offers. However, my soul food would be a burger.

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

Making a full-time career in food blogging is difficult especially when there is so much competition around and limited opportunities. One cannot expect immediate returns. Working hard, investing time and focusing on your content is really important. Food blogging is still an emerging career option. 

However, there's no harm in giving it a shot. I've always been passionate about food and its flavours since my childhood. It's this passion which has turned into my hobby and hopefully someday, it would become my profession.

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

Mumbai has a mix of both street food and amazing restaurants but if someone ever plans on visiting Mumbai for the first time, I would highly recommend them to try out the street food. For the best suggestions, you can check out my page, Foodelicious Mumbai.

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

The first thing that I notice in a dish is the flavours. If the dish tastes good, I'll feature it on my page. I only post those dishes which I personally like and refrain from posting those dishes which don't make the mark. 

The next thing that I notice is the ambience and the hospitality of the restaurant. If it impresses me, I mention that while reviewing them.

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

I think I'll associate myself with a Rasgulla because it's my most favourite sweet. How much ever Rasgullas I eat, I will never be satisfied and will want more of it.
