Fusion and experimentation is happening everywhere. Some good some terrible. Experimentation is what himachali roadside dhabbas do to maggie noodles And then there is Riyaaz Amlani.

.....Having a number of projects going at once is an Amlani habit. As a kid, child of a Parsi mother who favored mango chutneys and garlic powder and a father who brought in biryani (a spicy rice dish), chicken and eggs, Amlani says he had “at least two to three scams going on at any given point.” As a teen, he took a job at a shoe shop after his father left his mother. “One day we had money, the next we didn’t,” he says simply. The job gave him confidence, and in college he decided to open his own shop. “Disaster,” he says. He picked a neighborhood where he felt he could corner the nice-shoe market, fancied up a shop and installed air conditioning. No one came in; the closed door, nice window display and A/C made people think it’d be too expensive. After Amlani started leaving the door open and the shop muggy, business tripled, and paid for his first semester of college.

I have been to Smoke House Deli in Khan Market. Food and service were both fine. Had a nice steak along with Mushroom soup.
