On April 10, the judge shared snaps from her trip to India. After checking out Bombay's famous arch monument, the "Gateway to India," Padma posted a pic that said "Welcome to India." But, it seems that someone else was on hand to welcome Padma there.
In her next snap, alongside a young admirer who looks positively thrilled, The Encyclopedia of Spices & Herbs author wrote: "Just met the #1 [Top Chef] fan in India." But, judging from the adorable fan's elated expression, he may just love the show more than anyone in the world. Fun fact: The sweet photo was snapped at the Leopold Cafe, which was founded in 1871.
Later in the day, Padma hit a market and explored the fresh, ripe produce. The happy traveler only had one concern: "why is there no mango emoji," she wrote, to caption a photo of herself smelling the sweet fruit.
