No, it's not the same as the authentic fare served in India.
Being a virgin Indian, you are not a position to say.

Nor can you comment on various beers and their relative taste differences.

Had you been to the top restaurants especially the Michelin starred ones you'd would not say what you have stated above.
But, then, you're not a connoisseur of specialty foods or of refined ambiences and so you wouldn't know the difference.
Well, anyway, you can consider your limited exposure to world foods as good for you.
Again you are sounding like the fool.

I have been to many of the finest restaurants in the US. New York City; Philadelphia; San
Francisco and so on. Not to mention London, Hong Kong and Rome.

If you conflate and confuse ambiance and pretension [the use of affectation to impress; ostentatiousness] with the quality of the food, then again - it is you who are bedazzled and confused.

These are very different things. While there may often be some correlation, this is not an absolute relation by any means and very fine food is served in the humblest of venues and in the homes of some very fine cooks.

Your clueless comments put me in mind of the nouveau riche, or some red neck who recently won the lottery.

Try and think more before you express yourself.

The taboo against beef eating among the Hindus is superstition.....I am against cruelty to animals.
Do you consider a humane death to be cruel?

Or is death itself cruel?

If animals are properly cared for and then put to death humanely, how is this bad?

You clearly have your own silly superstitions with regard to food, alcohol, yoga and sex.

You are every bit as opinionated and inculcated with silliness as the devout theist.

Lawrence Krauss said it.
Google and see the vid in which he actually said it much to the shock of many in the audience.
BTW, since atheism discards the supernatural for lack of evidence and goes by natural explanations offered by science, tell me, which scientific laws can tell us whether siblings should have/should not have sex or whether it is OK for a mother to have sex with her son or whether it is fine for a dad to screw his daughter?
Can you point out the scientific laws that teach for/against sex in the aforementioned context?
I want to know the scientific evidence supporting/disfavoring incestuous sex since we atheists always go by the hard evidence, right?
Your position/argument is so thin that you do not provide links/ sources when I ask for them.

I will not do research to prove YOUR point. That is your job.( I did not know that Indians were so lazy!)

I accept your apology and full surrender.

Did you have sex with your siblings? Is that common in India?

BTW the incest you speak of supposedly more common in the Amish population (a religion).

Atheists would be very unlikely to do this, despite your rant.

Of course not. In the west. we don't always have the privilege of dining with Hepatitus C, or any of the the more entertaining GI microbes.
All of which undoubtedly add to the flavor.
And I bet the food tastes good over there too because riding on top of the trains builds up a mighty appetite!

Blind faith in a book.

Sounds very familiar.

Just as devout as any other believer.

Just a different set of beliefs. Yoga, no-sex, no-meat, no-alcohol, no-fun.

I once turned down a trip to China because I was afraid of the food. Dog meat wasnt the only issue. The idea of plasticizers as nutritional amendments was a scary idea.

I've been to China. Food wasn't bad, but I did stick with the basics - nothing too fancy. I did try Ostriche, though. A little too gamey for my tastes.

Being veg and a teetotaler, I rely on the knowledgeable opinions of my friends and F&B experts who I personally know in the Taj and elsewhere, where the subject of non-veg food and alcohol is concerned.

Yet, you lack the knowledge about the difference in dining at a Michelin star restaurant and an ordinary eatery.

I'm telling you again that you're not a connoisseur of food, style and ambience.

You may have eaten in some good restaurants but you lack the knowledge of discernment.

Ok, you can keep thinking that you know a lot about food.

You come across as an ordinary guy lacking in intelligence, education, focus, seriousness, style and exposure to sophistication.

I find killing cruel.

Everything material comes with a shelf life...unless the reports of select yogis overcoming death are true.

One such yogi is Subhash Chandra Bose who has manged to stay alive till 117 years or so while another who goes by the name of Barfani Baba is supposed to be 220 years or so. he lives in a hermitage on the banks of the Narmada and is accessible to people at certain times of the year. The Himalayan yogis like Maha Avatar Babaji are older with Babaji said to be 2000 years old. Details of Babaji are contained in the book An Autobiography of a Yogi by Yogananda who supposedly met him.

Why would atheists refrain from incest - father having sex with daughter, son having sex with mother, brother having sex with sister?

What is the evidence that goes against incest since atheists always ask for evidence?

So, can you point out to me certain scientific laws that indicate that incest is wrong?

Which laws of science tell us that incest is either right or wrong as the case may be?

Humane death?

If you're married to a female, well, then, why don't we take good care of that barren wife of yours who lacks maternal instincts and after fattening her up why don''t we "humanely" slit her throat and hand her flesh and bones to the cannibals to relish?

If we can do it to the animals, why not to your wife?

LOL
