The saga of Friday continues...
We were a bit hungry after climbing up and down the stairs at Melukote. Our driver was taking us to the next stop (some more temples) and found this random "restaurant" (the sign outside side "Mess Hall" - note to self - take pictures of signs as references!) along the way.
Traditional thali is served on banana leaves.
You sit on long skinny tables so the server can come by and put the food on the leaf. Pictured from right is Maria from Austria, Megan from Colorado, me (excuse my funny expression, I think I was in mid-sentence or something) and Kjirsten from Chicago.
And more food. You transfer the rice onto the banana leaf and mix it with the dal, curry and chutney and then eat with your fingers. Delicious!
