by Antariksh Singh

Amidst the picturesque landscapes of southern Italy, Bari, the capital of Apulia, finds itself not only hosting the prestigious G7 Summit but also welcoming a taste of India courtesy of Namaste India restaurant. Owned by Rupinder Singh, hailing from Punjab’s Phagwara, this eatery has become a focal point for those craving authentic Indian cuisine amidst the diplomatic buzz of the summit.

Mr. Singh, reflecting on his journey since opening just a year ago, expressed his disbelief at the opportunity to cater to such a grand event. “I never imagined we would be serving Indian delicacies to delegates attending the G7 Summit, including our esteemed Prime Minister,” he shared with The Tribune. His restaurant has been abuzz with orders, as attendees flock to experience the vibrant flavors of Indian cuisine in the heart of Italy.

For Mr. Singh and his team, this occasion is more than just a business opportunity; it’s a chance to showcase the rich tapestry of Indian flavors to patrons far from home. “Indian food has a unique appeal, and I am thrilled to introduce it to people from my country who are here for this significant summit,” he added enthusiastically.

Harsh Dhanda, the restaurant’s manager from Hoshiarpur, echoed this sentiment, emphasizing their commitment to quality and authenticity. “Using fresh, premium ingredients is our ethos, ensuring each dish we serve meets the highest standards,” he affirmed proudly.

The G7 Summit, hosted at the luxurious Borgo Egnazia resort in nearby Fasano, holds particular significance as it marks Prime Minister Modi’s first foreign visit since securing his third term in office. Against this backdrop of global diplomacy and discourse, Namaste India stands as a culinary ambassador, bridging cultures through the universal language of food.

As Bari radiates with the warmth of Italian hospitality and the vibrancy of Indian spices, Namaste India restaurant continues to be a beacon, offering a taste of home and tradition amidst the diplomatic proceedings of the G7 Summit.
