DUBAI: People curious about what a royal biryani tastes like can sample a sumptuous plate prepared by Abdullah Alampadi, a.k.a. “Baba Biryani”, who joined the Orchid Restaurant at the Ramada Hotel & Suites in Ajman recently.
The 60-year-old chef prepared food for Ajman’s ruling family for over 30 years before joining the hotel. “Cooking for guests (at the 140-seat restaurant), is no different from my former job. The preparation is the same. It’s just a question of upsizing in the right proportions, especially when there’s a huge hotel banquet for thousands.”
