You knew Ranbir Kapoor as an actor, now know him better in a new avatar as the Rockstar of Hard Rock Café. His foodie genes had taken him to the Café some months back and with a sporting spirit he took away the Foodie show as well as the food off from foodie-cum-host of the show, Kunal Vijaykar. Find out if he was a better foodie than the Rockstar…Before he could be pampered to a specially prepared scrumptiously laid out platter by the HRC chef, Ranbir adorned the chef’s hat and drummed his way to the cooking table. It was displayed with an interesting list of ingredients – eggs, milk, chicken bits, bacon, cheese, mushroom, macaroni, broccoli, salt, and super hot green chilies(kunal’s favourite). And, with an HRC pin stapled on his waist coat he made some mean moves with his hand and showed off his culinary expertise, and his love for eggs, which according to him are hard to crack. In collaboration with Kunal, Ranbir prepared a winning RK-Kunal scrambled egg dish, which still has to be listed on the menu card of Hard Rock Cafe.
After an affair with the eggs, the duo took a detour to their designated seat at the café and indulged their taste buds to some gourmet delights - Onion Wings, Potatoes Skin with Bacon, Chicken Wings, Tupelo Chicken named after Elvis Presley and two large HRC burgers. And, amidst morns of pleasurable sighs of hmm hmmm…and more hmmmm…Ranbir got nostalgic about the Kapoor’s lineage and their fetish with food, especially Pehawari cuisine and macaroni cheese. He bit into his juicy burger and spoke about his passion for Chinese cuisine, especially the Szechuan and the Cantonese cuisines, and confessed that even thou not a big veggy he loved the Bendi, Bartha and Zucchini.
The romance with the food was interrupted mid-way with a huge goblet presentation of the Brownie Sundae, a Hard Rock Café special, which was topped deliciously with a red cherry…(some more yummy sighs from Ranbir and Kunal were expressed.)
So, which avatar did you like the most? Is it that of a chef or as a Rockstar? Anyways, one thing is for sure and that is Ranbir is passionate about his food and loves to eat like a Rockstar.
