When there’s too many articles to publish and no editors, when there’s too many clients, and girlfriends breathing fire, when there’s a million videos to upload and slow internet, and when there’s simply no pleasing the boss. What do you do? Stuff your face of course.
Newton’s third law of motion says: Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. For us, at The Viewspaper its Food.
Push us into a corner with 72 hour tweetathons? We make tea. Hack our website and put up Jihadi threats? We’ll reclaim it with 7 non-stop days of fury and maggi. No matter what the trouble, we’ve got enough hot chocolate in our veins to see it through. So here’s the list of The Viewspaper’s greatest comfort food guaranteed to be the tastiest solutions to all your cubicle woes.
5. Neighbourhood Chinese: Picture this – You’ve totally missed your deadline, your boss is about to find out and give you 50 lashings for messing up, and your missing yet another episode of Grey’s Anatomy cause your still in office. There’s no point reaching out for that gun, instead call your neighbourhood Chinese wala bhaiyya and gorge on his greasiest chowmien and hot red schezwan gravy with special fried rice. Oh and we also suggest momos- whether with ass burning chutney or simply steaming, we can’t get enough of them. We promise you a food coma so deep you wont even hear your boss scream.
3. Maggi: We love our Maggi with as much as our press freebies and we stock up more Maggi packets than pen drives (no joke that) Our excuses to eat Maggi are more convincing than those explaining why we’re late to office. And yes, four of us twirling noodles out of one plate bond better than the million fire escape cigarette breaks. We’re sexy and we know it.
2. Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate: It’s not just us girls who crave it when we’re PMSing (which incidentally is all together) we’ve seen chocolate bring down the savviest of techies and melt the hearts of the toughest client servicers. Sometimes it appears as mousse, sometimes as cupcake and sometimes just a Bournville is enough to make peace between the editorial and client servicing (yes, you know who you are) chocolate is the working man’s beer. There, I said it!
1. Dal Chawal: Put your hands together for the ubiquitous and humblest of all things sentimental. When trouble is neigh, when we haven’t seen home for days and when our strength is about to give way – no words of encouragement, not even Scarlett Johansson can do what our Sheila didi’s Dal Chawal can. Whether it’s simple yellow dal with a mild tadka or a creamy black dal with the occasional rajma bean, all sins are washed away when we sit down and pile our plates for the ultimate moment of zen.
So here’s the roundup of our favorite feel-good food, minus those that were too embarrassing to put up. Write to us with your most comforting eats, and we’ll add you into our next post. Watch this space for more
