We have already mentioned in our site about Mohanlal's interest in running restaurants. The food joint has been christened as Mohanlal's Taste Buds. There are more than 50 varieties of pickles, powders, masalas and spices. A contest was recently organised by Mohanlal's Taste Buds called "The Lunch with Mohanlal Recipe Contest". Entries were invited from people residing in and around the Gulf country. They received more than 1000 entries. Out of that 12 winners were selected. In the finals, two winners were selected from Sultanate by Mohanlal.
