Meeting Oozy - a restaurant review of Burgs at RCity by Aman Ghildiyal


Yesterday I had my first encounter with Oozy. Oh! Got ahead in my story.

I had gone for a movie to R City Mall. After the movie I told Dad that I was hungry. At first, he said there was food at home. But then, just as we reached the exit, he asked me if I want a burger. We went in again. As he was taking me along I thought, “Where are we going?” Then I saw the Burgs signboard. This is where I had my first encounter with the burger Oozy

At first I wanted to eat the BBQ Chicken but Dad suggested I try something different so I ended up eating the Oozy. We even added a cheese slice to it. The beef in it was nice, the BBQ sauce and the mushroom + sauce combo with it was awesome.

It was better than McDonalds because;
1     -  McDonalds gives one patty and some cheese in one burger.
2     -  They don’t even give anything to drink except coffee and soft drinks. Burgs gives Iced Tea!!!
The beef in the burger was surprisingly good with the mushroom sauce, considering I never liked beef too much. 

The place was also nice. I just did not like the speed of service. It was too slow.

My Dad was complaining that the bread was crumbly. He always has a complaint about food. Well, some Dads never learn, even with really nice food…

I still loved the food and I want to go again. I loved the creaminess of the mushroom sauce went well with the BBQ sauce and the mince beef patty they made and the occasional piece of cheese slice…. I loved it.

Sorry got a bit carried away. So… anyone reading!? Ok bye! I’m gonna eat more!

The above review is written by my 11 year old son, Aman. I have transcribed it almost as he wrote it with the most minor changes. I cannot describe how proud I was of him and i had to share it. Do please leave a comment for him, I will make sure he reads them.






Being a mother means many things, accepting that he'll never stop being your baby, even when he grows too big to fit in your lap and tall enough for you to rest your arm around his shoulder. Living with the infinite awareness that you have to let him go and grow up and accept his life decisions, even if you disagree. Watching him make his own mistakes no matter how much you want to protect him. Tough love, losing your temper but living with it and being strong when he says ‘I hate you.’ Because he doesn’t know the meaning of what he is saying. Exhilarate in their wins, biting back YOUR pain at their hurt in loss, because they need you to tell them it’s okay. Craving quiet but missing the noise. Watching them sleep, even when they’re big, because that’s when time flies a little slowly….
 
But for all the sacrifice and pain motherhood brings, it also brings back your childhood.  It means you can play with toys without people thinking you are weird, sing silly songs,  watch cartoons again (and  Shinchan yet again!!!) and  travel to imaginary worlds. Endless hugs and kisses, beautiful smiles that brighten your worst moments. You discover that between your arms is a safe haven and in you is an endless strength to take on the world for these little beings.
It means hearing gems from the mouths of babes,and your almost man sitting across the table, 11 years down the line, describing food the way you would, shooting down Mcdonalds (even though its not for the reasons you would) and injecting humour beyond his years into his writing and you know you have done something right somewhere.

Hmmm... there must be some truth in what you say, Aman. Even my daughter keeps saying "Dad, you NEVER learn"!!! :D

Awesome post! Another Anton Ego in the making? Food critic to be both respected as well as feared... :)

Keep posting. As Sassy Fork says above, maybe you should start your own blog!

Rushina, lovely rejoinder :)

A wonderful review Aman. Yes, some dads are always complaining about food no matter what! In your dad's case it is probably because he has been pampered with too much good cooking!

Rushina, you already have an apprentice at home. Look no further.: D
