But since both my dad and grandfather are ferocius meat eaters and balk at the mere mention of ‘vegetarian food’,  my chances of eating here are greatly diminished.

The original restaurant in Gelugor was called Innira’s, while the restaurant in Service Road (off Burmah Road) was called Passions of Kerala. They now no longer carry the name Innira’s, having changed all the outlets’ name to Passions […]
