Because of the happiness of eating is not just about the tastes of food, but it all about meeting old and new friends, ordering wine, smelling and surrounded by strangers. It is a complete sensation experience.

Fire – Black Flat ( paratha bread with cheese cream)
The sour taste of cheese cream with the smell of yellow powder made the feeling slightly hot taste like a fire.

Air – Sky fruit (Meringue with aromatic whipped cream)
Softly taste of Meringue mixed with little sweetness of whipped cream gave a feeling of air chewing. The bite of lavender seeds that sprinkled on top of whipped cream as if I am standing in the middle of violet field, with the blowing wind and lavender scented.
