The Swissotel Date: A Ride into the Savory Sea Food Festival....

Well then, let me come to the point right away. We use the term "foodgasm" very often on the social networks...but then what is it's true implication? "Think less and eat more" - Says a foodie alright...hence this 'dual escapade' into the domain of gorging and 'euphoric scrutiny'; it is of course a Win-Win situation. The prospect of a Bloggers' Table being set up at the connoisseur's hub, Swissotel Kolkata....was alluring to the core. What followed soon after was a 'gratifying myriad' ...the "Sea Food Festival" unleashed it's savory delights...pampering our taste buds to the core. I really don't know where to start and where to end; it's almost a 'Mission Impossible'. Alright folks...let the pictures do the talking, they do speak more than words....
