The Rise of Food Blogger :-D A Look Back at 2015 Foodie Journey

Another year begins and everyone around me seemed excited to welcome 2016. I was least bothered about any of it; as each year comes and passes by, there isn’t much to be excited about. But yeah, thanks to my husband for suggesting me to pen-down all my achievements, failures or memories of 2015. That was a great idea which made me realize how much I have changed over the past 12 months.

Among the varied memories, failures & accolades; the best I enjoyed doing was Blogging about Food. I owe huge thanks to my hubby & my fellow foodie friends (the list is quite big) who have been an inspiration. Blogging, did some magic and helped me understand the real me! Finally, coming to the topic; I do owe so much to food. So here’s a post that I dedicate to food. Thanks to my fellow foodie, Rajiv Shankar (you can check his food journey, for coming up with the questions and helping me (indirectly) on a blog post:-P

2015, definitely the year in which I visited the most number of restaurants. Lots of memories were made during each visit. Now, it’s time to look back and re-kindle some of my foodie journey-2015:

Disclaimer: I am a Chennai Foodie for now! So only the places from Chennai counts.

1) Best restaurant I visited in 2015!
Kailash Parbat, Chetpet. It ticks all my boxes i.e. taste, price, variety, quality and quantity.

2) Not-so-great restaurant I visited in 2015!
Nellai Xpress, Most of the boxes weren’t ticked and that’s why!!
