    The first impression itself takes it half the way in, how much more it would be to feel it sliding slowly down your throat as your hungry insides squeeze out the elements glutinously. So when will these prophets of the table be able to deliver food like this right through the computers just so we keep the plate and spoons ready by the side. Whether you win or loose we are ready here to take a share,’Hey’ You gurus you call yourself one, how about food that can spill out of laptops on to plates where we wait. create the traffic. “Lets eat”
