Irine also hails from Mangalore but she moved to Bangalore and coming from a hospitality background got involved in operating a catering unit known as “RELISH CATERERS” specializing in Manglorean & Goan delicacies. Pork Dishes & Sannas were one of the most popular dishes among many others.

After a lot of speculations they took the plunge, like most daredevils do, resigned their day jobs and started off with the head-line of “Take Home The True Taste of Home” and launching the first ‘MANGO MIRCHI’ outlet in Canada,catering to the community to experience the true taste of Mangalorean and Goan cuisine.
