Zorawar Kalra dreamt of being in the restaurant industry all his life. The glamour and the hardships were both welcomed by him because his decision to be in the restaurant business was fueled by his passion. Mr Kalra confessed during the show that, “when I was 12-13, I decided I am going to get into the restaurant business in some way, shape or form.” He recently started the Farzi Cafe in the USA because he sees his restaurants as a way of, “exporting our culture through our food.”

When restaurants have offered us such diverse experiences and have strengthened our social life, it is important to hear the stories of their origin and boom.
