We get asked a lot of questions by people we meet or online. Some are really funny and shocking as well. Here are the 10 most asked questions.
1.You must be getting all your food for free na???? WOOOWWW you’re so lucky!
Hold the phone! Who ever told you we get our food for free? Wherever we go on our own we pay our bills. The only times we don’t pay are after a heated argument with the hotelier and the owner wins or when we are invited for tasting food and have to give our feedback.
2. You guys must be minting money right?
Yes, Colin owns a Lambhorghini, Nikhil prefers to travel only by his Ferrari and The Hungry men team go for reviews only in their PRIVATE JET!
Yes we do make money from ad revenues and occasional events, but these go into our operational costs like hosting, designing etc. We are hungry men purely for our passion for FOOD! We are not a profit making corporate giant, PERIOD!
3. Life is a piece of cake for you guys, all you have to do is eat food all day!
Excuse me? We do have alternate busy lives. Nikhil has his petrol pump and is a designer/cartoonist. Colin is a post graduate in Psychology and has stuff to do too. Our photographer Sonal has his own Ice Factory and is fitness coach. Similarly all associated with us have busy lives.
4. You guys must be charging a bomb for your reviews right?
Correction, our reviews are absolutely FREE OF CHARGE. We have never charged for our reviews till date and neither will we ever do.
5. Why don’t you charge for your reviews?
If we charge, an obligation forms wherein we have to write good about a restaurant. So we prefer to not charge so there is no obligation and we can be truthful.
6. Food reviewing? That’s so easy anyone can do it! Not a big deal.
Food reviewing is not a joke, as easy as it may sound we do have to be careful when writing and tasting as we have a large audience and can’t afford to offend anyone.
7. You guys are just like ZOMATO!
Zomato and us have major mutual respect for each other, but we are not them sam. Zomato is more like the just dial of food i.e a directory listing where restaurant contact details are available and people can list out their experience. We are different we just give our opinion on the places we have visited (along with amazing photos!).
8. OMG! You’ve become so FAT!
Yes dear, we keep eating so that u don’t have to worry when you got to a restaurant! Happy?
9. I want to join the Hungry Men, how much will you pay me?
Sorry sir, we don’t pay anyone who works with us as we ourselves don’t get paid! Our only prerequisite is that your first love should be food. Though we don’t pay, we offer great experience, greater food and the greatest of fun.
10. Who is the 3rd hungry man?
WE ATE HIM! HAHAHAHA (evil laugh).
