You know how there is always a place you want to go. And everything seems better and more lovely and the food is great and comfortable. And attention to detail remains. And there is always a familiar face calling you by name. After over five decades, El Chico is that place in Allahabad. The must haves list is a little long: tomato fish, the dum aaloo, the shammis (oh my God) the best plum cake in the world… a multi speciality restaurant which has really stood the test of time.
