How about some Indian food?

Hey guys, Today it’s time again for a little photo walk or, in other words, for a trip to a restaurant where I was allowed to take pictures and got the chance of tasting different dishes! I used this opportunity to test the latest member of my lens series. Actually, it isn’t really a lens ...
