Indian Football Captain, Sunil Chhetri, joined us on the episode of Sunday Brunch with our Editor-in-Chief, Kamiya Jani. During the interview, he mentioned that his home is in Bangalore now, with his cute little family. He even criticised Banglore for having really bad traffic but also said that he loves the city despite it. However, he was able to give us some great food place recommendations in Bangalore and we were hyped about it.
Sunil Chhetri Suggested 3 Bangalore Restaurants
While we were on the topic of Bangalore, we weren’t gonna miss out on getting some good food recommendation places from the person who has been living in Bangalore for over a decade now. Kamiya asked Sunil Chhetri, “Acha aap mujhe baatiyen, main Bangalore mein hoon ek hi din ke liye, toh aap kya kya recommend karenge. Main kaha kaha jayun Bangalore mein? ” She was simply asking for recommendations as it was a one-day trip to Bangalore.
Sunil Chhetri cutely went on to facepalm and answered us that he was actually the wrong person to ask this question. This made Kamiya laugh out loud and she questioned him about his frequency of outings. Then he gave us these food recommendation places. He suggested Airlines which is in the heart of the city and serves South Indian cuisine. He even told us they serve some great Dosa, Idli and Filter Coffee. What he also liked about Airlines is that it has a great ambiance and is within walking distance from his place. Hmm, we see you are avoiding travelling in Bangalore and being stuck in traffic.
Next, Sunil Chhetri told us about Shiro from where they order sushi and he adores a dish called Hibachi Rice. Lastly, he recommended ITC’s The Royal Afghan. Even while mentioning this restaurant, it seemed like he remembered some delectable food items from The Royal Afghan. We definitely have to go here. He said their food is, and we’re quoting here, “lazeez khana” and that they serve massive portions of food. So much so that you might have to skip meals for two to three days!
His Cheat Meals Are Pre-Planned!
Sunil Chhetri also mentioned during the interview that his cheat meals were pre-planned. We all have question marks on the top of our heads and are a tad bit guilty of eating everything in sight. Upon further explanation, we got to know that he sets benchmarks for his cheat meals.
Sunil Chhetri told us that if he had a football match with a particular team after 15 days and if he won that match, he would be eligible to enjoy his cheat meals. It’s just not that, the timings and people who he will have cheat meals with are fixed. He is a very strict person when it comes to his body and his game and we appreciate that. In the end, he told us that during cheat meals, he just goes all out and gorges a little too much. Well, he deserves it!
