Sra Ali Khan enjoyed an Asian grub in London and we are drooling, yet again.
Actress Sara Ali Khan who was last seen in the critically acclaimed ‘Atrangi Re’, is busy travelling from one destination to another. Only a few days ago, she took a small trip with her friends to Pahalgam, Kashmir, where the gang even cooked some of their own meals by the stream. And now, Sara has landed in London. And within a day, the foodie in her couldn’t resist trying some delish food the city has to offer. For her dinner, Sara chose Asian. Her spread included some chicken tossed with honey and chilly pepper, some steamed bok choy, roasted chicken with veggies, fried rice and dumplings with chilli sauce. Drooling much? Sara also chose and apt gif for the photo, the gif read “in mood for good food”. It is rather typical of Sara to go to different places and try local restaurants and food. London, being one of the most cosmopolitan cities of the world, is also renowned for its rich Asian fare.
