I found myself giddy with happiness after I stumbled over this video of desi people trying and reacting to American burgers for the first time. The video is nothing short of adorable, with wholesome reactions and a chunk of lively representation.
The idea was simple. It’s a spin on getting foreign folks to try desi food. Sure, we feel great when see our biryani and bun kebab being devoured, but what about our people trying bahir ka khaana? Well, this video explored that and it was GREAT.
Their ‘first impression’ of the Kentucky burger, when tried, didn’t seem to go so well
Seems like this burger failed to make a good first impression on some of the participants of the video.
Whereas this participant advised how burgers were supposed to be served with ‘tehzeeb‘!
You tell ’em, boss. Burgers absolutely should be cut in half before serving to ease the process of eating them without making a mess.
This participant also DECLARED how this burger can just not compete with the desi food they eat!
This participant of the video confidentially stated that this burger did not come close to even the ‘daal’ they eat and well…he’s got a point you know.
One burger was also dubbed to be a ‘double-decker’ bus
After seeing all the layers of this burger and inspecting them, it was categorized as a double-decker bus by this participant and it’s so cute!
And…this man really let everyone know how he felt about the burgers
The guy developed such a distaste for the burger that he immediately apologized and gave the cutest expressions of how he felt while putting the burger away.
Some of them even compared eating the burgers to eating hay
When asked about their final reviews, their responses were adorable.
The folks that liked the burgers had pretty amazing reviews.
But the ones who didn’t like the burgers let their sentiments be known.
However, this participant knew it was just about perspective and taste
