Today was a fun day! Wait! It is still a fun day. 😀
Lunch time, we couldn’t bear our office lunch menu (Batata bhaji gravy, Beetroot bhaji, Dal Fry, Palak Rice, Plain Rice, Chapati, Cucumber Slices, Raita, Jalebi) so we decided to go out for Fish thali. We hunted down a nearby restaurant owned by some guy named Raju’s (usually some of the best Fish thalis are served in these small bar and restaurants; But, no one can beat mom’s and aunt’s fish curry rice! yumm)
We are on a side road searching for this place – Raju’s. I see a guy inside a small grocery looking out at us so I shout out, “Raju’s hui aaha?/Where’s Raju’s?“. He screams back, “Konn Raju? /Who’s Raju?“. I act out “eating” and tell him,”Khaupache restaurant Raju’s!/Raju’s restaurant- to eat!“. He points to his right.. I point at that bar and ask him, “Hei Raju’s?????/This is Raju’s“. From inside he’s like, “Hai!!/ Yes!!”
So much drama to find a small bar n restaurant. Guess what. Raju is the manager of the place. Thus people call it Raju’s. We expected a board with Raju’s Bar n Restaurant on it.
After the yum lunch (rava-fired lepos (idk the English name) and bangdo (mackerel)), we took a detour to a small spring next to a nearby restaurant; where I soaked my jeans. 😥 (sitting with soaked jeans in an AC room! Brrr!!!)
The spring water, though a little muddy, is filled with these little fish which nibble on your toes when you dip your feet in and sit completely still. 😀
Fishy Pedicure! 😀
