Default Yoko Sizzler Meet

The much awaited Sizzler Meet happened today after the last disastrous Sazio meet,which changed the perception of "Sumptuous Proportions of Food" that saddened us last time.
Members who attended in their respective rides:
- Hillram : Opel Corsa
- Mobike008 : Hyundai Viva
- Venu : Hyundai i20 (he was keeping the engine warm for his friend's i20)
- Raveendra : Fiat Palio GTX
- Swordfish & his friend : Maruti Swift
- Ritesh : ?

After deliberations whether to go for this meet or not,I landed up promptly at 1300 Hrs at Yoko Sizzlers on Banjara Hills Road No:3 and being first , i ordered a Pina Colada mocktail and started going through the menu.By the time I decided what to eat,other members sailed in and we started the ordering of steaks,sizzlers,mocktails.
Soon there was smoke in the room with steaks,sizzlers and coloured mocktails (blue ocean,Ginger mocktail brewed by Ravvendra),Fresh Lime.
Pepper Steaks,Chicken,Mutton steaks soon stole the show and this was like the feast that Vitalstatistix normally organises at the end of an Asterix comic tale.Words like "delicious""succulent""satisfaction" were overflowing in the room.
While discussions were apace mostly about the upcoming trip of Ravveendra aka AP to AP,the logistics,routes,climate etc.
I was calmly marooned in my sizzler amid the smoke and savour.
It was time for desserts and turned out the 4 of us ordered Brownie sizzler and it turned out that there was only 1 brownie.Since it was Raveendra who was earning all the Brownie points with his AP-AP trip ,other T-Bhpians gladly sacrificed their Brownies and ordered Belgian Dark Chocolate.The qualtity was very good and it survived many scoops from me,unlike at Sazio.
Avi the maitre de maison and our raison d'etre to be at Yokos quickly bargained the bill and we came out totally satisfied.
A group pic in front of the patio summed up the meet.
Though i camera played a spoilsport with few pics in terms of clarity,here is the meet,meat in pics.
Imran missed u buddy.

Nice pics. ram, as for the last one, looks like it was taken nearly 30 years ago- now knowing me, you'd know that this is not to be taken as an offence when it comes from me!

'hope to meet up on 22nd.

Great report there Ram. The meat in the pictures have come out decent. I hope Bblost is looking and fuming at them

The way last picture has come, you should sue olympus for the same...LOL. Do get the screen issue resolved soon. Hope to see it back in action on Nov 22nd.

Btw, Ram you described me in some exotic words in your report. Hope it's not some choicest gaalis in French...LOL

I absolutely loved the sizzler at Yoko's. Me and Venu were digging into it with wild abandon. I can vouch for that because Venu was not interested in speaking even a word until his sizzler got over. Venu, it was sumptious wasn't it?

I loved both the chops and cubes meatted sizzlers but chops was more interesting.

I am going back there again next week
