Last weekend, I was invited to *discover* something with Opera. The idea was to bring all the food lovers (bloggers) together, under the bamboo loaded roof of this newly opened restaurant called Ahoy!Asia, and let our taste buds explore the various flavors that our continent has to offer. The initiative was a joint genius of Opera India and Ahoy!Asia.
GUESS WHAT & WHERE?
The event started off with some delicacies presented in front of us.
We were asked to guess the ingredients of the 1st dish, and the cuisines to which the latter belonged to. The dishes consisted of Korean, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese and Malaysian cuisine. I apologies for my negligence, as I was so busy relishing the delicacies that I forgot to save down the names of these.
The fun was taken to a more interesting level with an amazing oriental lunch menu presented in front of us, with a little tete-e-tete with Opera geniuses.
