A large number of tourists have trickled in here either for a vacation or to enjoy the glitz and glamour of ongoing IIFA weekend and are loving the place, but when it comes to food, they prefer ‘desi’ cuisine over anything else.
The craving for the home food is so great that the tourists do not mind walking the extra mile for their ‘daal-roti’.
“We prefer Indian cuisine here because we are not used to anything else. We have developed a taste for our own food,” Chitra, who is at the Venetian Macao here with her husband and daughter, told IANS.
The members of the Indian film industry have assembled here to celebrate yet another year of movies and box office success at 14th IIFA (International Indian Film Academy) awards, which started here Thursday.
Some of the big names from Bollywood like Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Vidya Balan, Shahid Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor are here for the event.
