When we talk about Google, we always find a mention about India. In fact, from an Indian point of view, Google is synonymous with India, which is due to various reasons. And so here as well, and this time it is its restaurant at company’s California campus.
Google’s massive California campus houses 30 cafes in total for employees, which includes Cafe Baadal -an Indian restaurant.
Cafe Baadal has been serving Indian cuisine to employees since 2013, when Bon Appetit Management Company – which operates cafes at Google, eBay, Oracle, and many other tech companies – decided to set up this cafe at the Googleplex.
Cafe Baadal’s chef Irfan Dama, formerly a private chef who focused on Indian home cooking and the country’s many regional cuisines, is a very popular cooking personality on YouTube.
At Baadal, trolleys are pushed about, hawking superb chai and equally excellent rose or mango lassis.
Indian chai has become a sensation around Google, and people love its distinct cardamom-laced allure.
At Baadal, lunch is served with thali-style as stews and curries to be eaten with the starches, raita, and chutneys.
And another dish that happens to be everyone’s favorite among Googlers is biryani, which served only on Fridays.
