Food is something that drives our stomachs crazy. From a double cheese burst pizza to a Chappan bhog thali, any dish, from any cuisine, it’s all same for the foodies.
What’s the most expensive dish have you ever ordered? A platter, or a good fancy cuisine? What does it cost you? Thousand bucks? Well, that’s what we can assume a high price for a dish. Unfortunately, that’s not the only limit is the bar is set too high.
