According to Chef Mano Thevar, “Carlsberg Smooth Draught’s signature smoothness and refreshing hoppy taste make it a great pairing beer to the spicy elements of Indian-fusion food. So much so that when this partnership came about, I was really excited to get on board. The idea is to bring food lovers on a journey that will fire-up the senses and ignite palates with unexpected combinations of fiery flavours, and I can say with full confidence that this dining exBEERience is one dinner series beer lovers are not going to want to miss.”
