Why we love this?
Pav bhaji, pal kova, thattu idli and murukku sandwich - words that can make any foodie drool. How would you like these served with a fistful of spicy stories? Stories of people and their passion for food, of food fetishes that are as laughable as thought provoking, and of recipes that are jealously guarded secrets.

The streets of Sowcarpet team with shops selling food - from the exotic to the everyday. Let us take you on a walk that gets you to sample the best of this and the best of that. And that is just for starters. We’ll show you how a morsel of food could hide a million pointers to the way of life of a people.
