Ganesh Vilas

v18.jpgLast night, on my way home from university, I stopped by at Ganesh Vilas for dinner. Every time I go there I always order the same dish, Masala Dosa. Well yesterday I thought I should try out something different, so I started going through the menu, for some reason I got this craving for meat and for some strange reason I could not find anything on the menu which would indicate to me that there was meat in the dish. So I called the individual serving me, who I suspect is the owner’s son, and I go, “Which dish would have mutton in it?”. BIG MISTAKE!!!! The guys expression instantly changed and I could tell that he had been terribly offended, he immediately stepped back and went “No No, only vegetarian”. He was probably thinking “GET OUT OF HERE YOU MEAT EATING $^!%*&”. While I was trying to come up with some kind of damage control, so I quickly gave my usual order and wished I could kick myself for being such a dumb ass. I then noted that the menu clearly said Pure Vegetarian Food and even the signboard outside mentioned the fact very clearly. Don’t know if i’ll be able to show my fact there ever again. I wish I had read this post about The Expected Etiquette While Eating in an Indian Restaurant before last night.

    I wouldn’t be too worried by it. Its a faux pas alright but nothing earth-shattering!:)
    If you like Masala dosas (where is ganesh vilas anyway?) you could try Raj at Syed Alwi Road (just beyond Mustafa) as well as Sagar Ratna on the same road, just opp the money exchanger entrance of Mustafa…
