But I am never happy with food served by CAB (Cricket Association of Bengal-the local cricket association in <a href="/tags/Kolkata/post" target="_blank">Kolkata</a>'s Eden Gardens)," said Sehwag.<br /> <br /> "A lot of times I have opted for only sandwiches at the Eden <a href="/tags/IPL/post" target="_blank">IPL </a>(Indian Premier League) is different. There the food is not served by the <a href="/tags/CAB/post" target="_blank">CAB</a>."<br /> <br /> Embarrassed no end after the damning comment from the Najafgarh man, the CAB went on damage control mode by asking the caterer to improve the standards during the Dec 5-9 India-England Test match at the Eden.<br /> <br /> "We always want to serve good and a great variety of food to the players. But the problem they have stringent diet restrictions," said CAB reasurer <a href="/tags/Biswarup-Dey/post" target="_blank">Biswarup Dey</a>.<br /> <br /> "We will provide him whatever delicacies he wants. And our only demand is he should get a hundred," added Dey, trying to make it light.<br /> <br /> A relevant piece of information here is that Sehwag is a former restaurateur. He had opened his signature vegetarian eating joint "SehwagFavourites" in Delhi's Fun Republic Cineplex in 2005.<br /> <br /> Speaking at the launch of a book "Cooking on the Run" by writer <a href="/tags/Boria-Majumdar/post" target="_blank">Boria Majumdar</a>, opener <a href="/tags/Ajinkya-Rahane/post" target="_blank">Ajinkya Rahane</a> mentioned his love for Japanese Sushi, while spinner <a href="/tags/Ravichandran-Ashwin/post" target="_blank">Ravichandran Ashwin</a> was all for south Indian food.<br /> <br /> There was unanimity among the players - including Ashwin's spin partner <a href="/tags/Pragyan-Ojha/post" target="_blank">Pragyan Ojha</a> and tennis star <a href="/tags/Mahesh-Bhupathi/post" target="_blank">Mahesh Bhupathi</a> - that a sumptuous spread was the best way to boost oneself after a poor day on the ground.
