The concept is excellent and worth encouraging, and I am all for it, which is why I made the effort to go here even though it is difficult to find. However, the menu on offer was disappointing. I had no desire to have bean soup and corn rice with some pasta dish, all cooked by Gujju volunteers. I was hoping... More
