Food Trail in Ahmedabad

Ahmedabad, my home for 5 years and a city that embraced some of my craziness. I recently returned back to Ahmedabad after 7 years, and realised that like me, much had changed here. But the one thing that did not change was the love the locals have for food. They eat out with their family, with friends, with friends' families and if no one else is around then even alone! I was also happy to see that though my favourite food joints in the city are still there and still serve exactly the same food (you listening Upper Crust??), many new and interesting joints have also opened up.

Opening an eatery is a sureshot business idea in the city, which is actually what a friend of mine from college did. I kid you not. If you are ever in the Prahladpur area, do drop in at Jassi de Paranthe and savour a little taste of Punjab in this Guju land. And do say hi to Jassi from me.

My latest article on Rediff is a celebration of the food scene in Ahmedabad. Thankfully, most names (actually all) are legends and have been around for longer than one cares to remember.
