Food tales, the battle of choices

“You are vegetarian, right?” is 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 me…

I am part of several groups of 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!!

The one good thing is that most 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.

But then there are times, more so 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!!

I dont expect my non veg friends to convert, but then it would help if they stopped mocking/frowning down at us veggies..
