MUMBAI—A big sandwich available in the suburbs is named “Bahubali” Sandwich and costs Rs 400. It is a four-decker vegetable sandwich. “Bombay Times” has published an interesting compilation of restaurants that tribute our stars.
“Bahubali Thali” in Pune has a huge “Devasena Paratha,” “Katappa Biryani,” Sivagami Shahi Pakwan” and “Bhalladeva Patiala Lassi” with other accompaniments – it takes an hour to prepare, and five people can eat it!
A South Mumbai joint, Noor Mohammadi Restaurant, has “Chicken Sanju Baba.” Dutt would go there frequently and gave them this recipe 12 years back. Even today, he orders the dish home!
A Bandra bakery has “Bobby Deol Cake,” which is ordered by his wife and liked by him.
Salman Khan has an entire Bandra restaurant named after him – “Bhaijaan’s.” His trivia like bracelets and posters adorn the walls and roof, and we find even currency notes with dates of his film releases. Dishes too are named after his characters, like “As sweet as Prem” (dessert) and “Chulbul Chawal” (rice as a main course). India-West had contacted its owner when it opened some years back, but never got a response.
A milkshake bar overseas made news with a “Mallika (Sherawat) Shake,” while Huma Qureshi too has a vegetarian recipe named after her in a restaurant in Italy. Back home, an Italian restaurant has a “Kareena Kapoor Size Zero Pizza,” and Jeetendra has a ‘thali’ named after him in a five-star hotel in Chennai.
