Definition

If Harold & Kumar were porkis living in Bangalore this would be their White Castle (if you are unfamiliar with Amreeka, this is a place where you go for something to eat on late/drunken/stoned nights, that you will shoorly regret the next morning). Fanoos is a favorite hangout/timepass spot in Johnson Market for hungry late night revelers who don't question what they are eating. In the absence of a Health & Sanitation Department that govern restaurant cleanliness, rumors run rampant about stray dogs going missing and cooks kneading mystery meat with their dirty feet but the end product is like manna from heaven. Eat a jumbo(2x) or a Rambo(4x) shish kabab roll washed down by a Thums Up and be on your way. Never mind that the next morning you're on the throne begging for mercy and some Eno.

Usage

Farid: All that dancing at Knock Out made me hungry, da. Let's get some Fanoos.
Johnny: Fanoos! One Rambo roll and I'll be majaa, mene!
