Sundays used to be the most awaited day of the week. Something special would be cooked, other than the routine food. Masala Dosa or Idli Sambar was among those dishes for us. Food has the power to make you happy.
As you move abroad, depending on your food preferences and the country you move to, the amount of happiness would vary. An office colleague ordered food for me at the counter, during our first Friday lunch out.
“What did you order for me?” I asked.
“Mock fish!” he answered.
“I am vegetarian on first seven days of a week”, I replied, looking away from the plate that arrived.
“Only name has a fish. What you see is made out of Soybean”, he started laughing.
It took a while for me to believe that it was not a prank. And few more months to appreciate the concept!
Do share your exciting encounters at the food table, let the world know! 😊
