This has been long overdue. I've been tagged by Prema of My Cook Book for this meme.
(Added on 10/31/06: Warning! The following paragraph contains an inordinately indelicate "bad" experience which may make reader swear off Biryani and/or Bangalore restaurants forever. Reader discretion advised!)
(Edited to lessen the gross factor) My most disgusting experience with food has been in a small restaurant in Bangalore that specialized in Biryani. They made the tastiest Muslim style Biryani ever! My colleagues and I would go there at least once a month to get our fix. This one time, a friend of mine found a long strand of hair in the middle of her biryani (yech!) and informed the waiter who served us. He came over, leaned over her plate, pulled out the errant strand and walked away, expecting her to continue eating! Needless to say, we left in a hurry & never set foot in that restaurant again! I don't want to think about other possible embellishments that went into the biryani to make it taste as good as it did!
Sorry, guys! I know this one is pretty gross!!
(Hey, I warned you!!)
I'd like to tag Jayshree of Veggie Delight for this meme.
