“A well-fed man is a happy man; a man who for­gives and for­gets trans­gres­sions, a man who extends the ben­e­fit of doubt, and for whom no insult pen­e­trates as deeply as the plea­sure of his gourmandize. We find seren­ity of mind and body, when appetizing food is served in pleas­ant sur­round­ings and eaten with care and atten­tion. It facil­i­tates relax­ation, con­tent­ment, gen­eros­ity, and felicity.” Reserve your table for imperial Rajasthani Delights ….
