Mr VP and I decided to head towards Frazer Town, specifically to Richies to try their biryani, which is supposed to be fabulous. And it being Ramazan, we expected them to get it right at least on this special day. And we weren't disappointed. We also ordered a half plate of mutton chops, which sadly were a little chewy, and nowhere near the melt-in-your-mouth tenderness of the mutton in the biryani.
The biryani lived up to its reputation, and both VP and I left extremely content.

Karthik Shetty is a Bunt, a martial race of mercenaries-turned-agriculturists (by birth), a computer engineer (by qualification), a content & marketing manager at Zomato.com (by profession), and a food writer by passion, in Bangalore. While not plying his trade, he can be found in any one of the numerous eat-out joints in Bangalore, savouring what the city's best cooks have for the palate. A true connoisseur of food, he considers himself an artist; the food is his paint, the cutlery his paintbrushes and his stomach is his canvas. Addicted to comics, food & socio-politico-economic issues, he loves to discuss issues that affect Laxman's common man and happens to ruffle a lot of feathers in the process, and he plans to continue this crusade indefinitely. Liberal, amateur photographer, non-believer, punctual are some adjectives that also describe him. You can have a conversation with him on any topic under the sun and expect him to contribute substantially to the discussion. A rare quality in him is he's an extremely good listener (so he's been told); so talk.
