Google CEO Sundar Pichai shares his favourite places in Google Maps
In the blog post, Pichai talked about his love for burritos and shares his favourite eating joints across the globe, one of which is in India as well.
Google Maps just turned 15 and the company CEO, Sundar Pichai, has listed out some of his favourite places around the globe. And since he expressed immense love for burritos in a dedicated blog post while talking about the updates coming to Maps, all the favourites marked by him are eating joints that, according to Pichai, serve the 'best' burritos. The map shared by Pichai inside the blog post lists some 18 eating joints, one of which is in Mumbai.
"I'm always happy when I can combine both of these interests by hunting down a good, local veggie burrito. Burritos are one of the things that help me feel normal when jet lagged between time zones," Pichai said. "Over the years, I've discovered some great burrito places. In honor of Google Maps' 15th birthday, I've made a list of some of my favorites on Google Maps (of course!)," he added.
