Authenticook - Shahi Dastakhan at Ruksana's House
Food is the most primitive form of comfort. Ask anybody who's been away from home what they miss the most and the answer is most likely to be home-cooked food, bridging the gab and offering food cooked and served with love is Authenticook. I was recently hosted for Shahi Dastakhan at Ruksana's beautiful house.
Being a typical shy, Bengalurean dining with authenticook was a very new concept, but it is best way to make new friends and get to taste regional cuisine, I enjoyed every minute. In my opinion NOTHING can beat a home cooked meal!
