In an official-looking string of self-made shop fronts lies an off-the-cuff vegetarian delight known as Chat Patti. Inside, customers are acting as if no one is around. Most are conversing about business or family gatherings while several others are eating solo and reading a paper or novel. "Can I help you?" a voice says. When eating food new to the palate, explanations of dishes are often helpful. And without hesitation, the waitress explains the menu to a confused man. This Indian experience will leave you understanding a little more about the culture as well as the food.
