There were 1.8K retweets and 13.2K likes to the November 24 reply.

One user posted a meme of Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui with the caption: “Who are you?”


Another user commented: “Eugh I’m Nom Tichols. I like unseasoned boiled mush, with clams”.

One user was clearly not amused. She remarked: “Eh, whatever. More naan for us.”


One post read: “I’ll take Americans not understanding food from other cultures for $1,000”.

After Nichols professed his love for Russian food, one user said: “We get it, you’re very white.”


“Unless you’ve literally tried every single type of Indian cuisine, there is no way you can make such a general statement,” commented one user.

A netizen wrote: “Yes. Who wants food filled with copious amount of rich flavour and spice when I can eat unseasoned chicken with mayonnaise?”

Zomato India responded on @ZomatoIN: Now would be a good time to launch the dislike button @Twitter”.

One foodie commented: “Yes, this is VERY controversial. And, Indian food is delicious”.

Television host Padma Lakshmi wrote on her Twitter handle @PadmaLakshmi: “Do you not have tastebuds?”

A user had another humorous take on the Nochols’ opinion on Indian food. “Time to throw him in a pool of daal makhni or kadhi pakoda… Before that he should be wrapped in one huge bhatura.”
