Two days after the event, I got the first hand experience when I ordered their meat for my cooking class. Two handsome guys from Switzerland, Etienne and his friend also vouched the quality of the meat. The mutton Dum Briyani made with Licious meat was a testament of their quality and freshness.

May they continue to vow more meat lovers in Bangalore. I hope their maintain these three aspects in their business - Quality, Freshness and Innovation. And, more importantly, good customer service.

Good Luck to Licious Team!
