- I was jealous to see that my friends Manish and Shilpi took their little foodie son Neo to Sodabottleopenerwalla at GGN. I wish I had had a chance to be there, I smiled to see my friend Saee’s daughter had ‘made tea’ for her Mom and another friend Kainaz had put pictures of delicious looking pies she had baked for her family. I also drooled of over my friend Prachi Joshi (of the blog Delishdirections) #lunch of #Thai style prawns and veggies with rice noodles.
