Cilantro – Trident, Gurgaon

I am one of you… I have a great deal of guilt after I devour a magnificent Tiramisu or a delectable Bolognese Pizza with some chilled beer while cheering a game on the big screen in front of me! During moments of better self-control, I’m conscious of what I eat , which is code for “can’t eat in a restaurant”!

My best friend on the other hand works out religiously, yet is never able to fully enjoy a tasty, wholesome meal in a restaurant only because she knows the meal will be filled with unhealthy calories. She instead chooses to stick to salads and juices and soups! The two of us are quite contrasting in our eating habits but the point where we both agree is our dedication to being calorie-conscious! When does this stop?

Now!
