South Indian || North Indian || Contenential || Chinese & Vietnamese   

 

  Restaurants rise or fall with the quality of their food, and chefs are notoriously fickle and footloose. Service and ambience can also make or break a meal's pleasure, likewise a bad stomach can easily interrupt the joys of a pleasant holiday.

 

     Puducherry has different types of restaurants for different types of food. Usually the food is comparatively clean, but it is advisable to order bottled mineral water if one is not sure to get filtered, ozone treated water served. Restaurants are categorised into four: Continental, South Indian - Vegetarian and Non-Vegetarian, North Indian - Vegetarian and Non-Vegetarian, French, Chinese and Vietnamese.

 CONTINENTAL, FRENCH & EUROPEAN FOODS

     Foreign and other visitors normally gravitate to three restaurants in the French Quarter, two of them next door to each other. Like many Pondy restaurants, their menus contain many categories (the "multi-cuisine" Continental, Chinese and Indian) but they are probably best (and most relied on) for "European" food, including fresh salads which are as safe to eat at these places as anywhere in India, bar Auroville. Why not try them all?

SOUTH INDIAN & NORTH INDIAN - VEG


     South Indian food is in its own class. Some claim idli and vadai with sambar and coconut chutney (and sweet, milky South Indian filter coffee!) is the world's best breakfast. Try it for yourself!
"Meals" (noun, singular). We're talking here about having a banana leaf or thali (or tray) "plate" and lots of small stainless steel pots full of different parts of the meal.

 

     You can use your hands, much the best way though not as easy as you'd think, or a spoon in the right hand and a fork in the left. Theoretically, you can eat anything in any order you like. The fun of a "meals" is to mix the tastes and textures to see what combinations and sequences you prefer. Most people start with the bland and move up to the spicy, and end with rice, curd and pickles and then the sweet. But variety is the spice of life. Some people even start with the sweet.

     The waiters will visit you again and again: to wipe down the table, to take your order, to bring the tray, to bring salty pickles and smooth chutney and onion- or tomato- laced yoghurt raita, to supplement the rice or anything else you run short of, to bring you a closing banana, sometimes a paan (or a leaf-wrapped quid ), your bill, your change. It's quite a production.
