India: Luncheon

A lot had been wondering what we had for lunch and dinner during our stays in India. Was it roti canai and curry in every meal? We had our lunch at the cafeteria since we did not dare to try out any eatery outside the company for the safety of our stomachs. There were only 2 choices in the cafeteria, either sandwich or typical Indian food. We tried the cafe food in the first 2 days and the food was not our likings especially my Filipino colleagues who couldn't eat spicy food. We had Domino's Pizza, croissant and bread from our breakfast and even mee cup for lunch in the remaining working days.

This was the menu for sandwich. I never tried before.

These were the dishes. They served steamed rice, biryani rice, soup, sambhar, chapati or roti canai and snacks. For vegetarian.

Rs. 29 for a meal. You can refill and eat as much as you want. This was what I took for my lunch on my first working day.

This was my lunch for the second day and I tried some unidentified food. The Indian told me it's seed for the dish at top left. It tasted very sweet and looked a bit like sticky rice. And the white color thing was Indian-style yogurt, made from fresh cow milk. Damn sour. I didn't intend to waste food but torturing my tongue was not a good solution though.

Normally, they would take a spoonful of this after-meal snack after lunch. Tasted like peppermint.

Hungry kya?

P/s: MMU installed new president a few days ago. It's a sad and bad news for me. I appreciate the effort and contribution of Prof. Gauth Jasmon and Prof. Chua towards MMU all these years. I could only hope for the best now.

charging me 100 bucks for chatting soo much eh ? says where and who ? and btw, india's currency is considered small... think the food you eat there are quite reasonable...

so one question, how'd come you always have your dinner at the hotel instead of outside ? scared you'll get a tummy ache after eating them ? :) LOL~

bamboo: Heard that there's another new cafeteria at Ground Floor of the building and it serves non-vegetarian food. You have more choices now. Enjoy your trip!
