the first question am asked when I head out to dinner with a group. And then there will be a round of chuckles,
comments, frowns and smartass comments before we get down to the food.. Last
evening, suddenly it hit me that I never ask others [people am meeting for the
1st time] if they are vegetarians or non vegetarians!! It never even
hits me to ask that, probably cos I don’t care and it makes no difference to
friends and in one am the only vegetarian, while in another there is a guy who
is the only non vegetarian, and then there is the other group where most of us
are veggies and another where it is 50:50.. But whenever we are out, if there
is a non veg minority, we do tell them they can go ahead order non veg food, on
the other hand when am out to dinner with a group where am a minority or the
only veggie, the veggie food comes, but quite delayed.. Again, something that
makes me wonder why!!
restaurants now know am a veggie and make it a point to tell the staff that am
a veggie and to bring out a few veggies dishes alongside the non veg dishes.
than ever where my friends seem to love the veg dishes more than their non veg
dishes.. I have had debates with friends
about how cooking a good veg dish is far challenging than making a non veg dish
and while initially they disagree when they do get down to it, they agree!!
