Went on an egg Benedict hunt cafe drive down Bandra today.
First place, a favourite of mine for Benedicts, was packed with folks having meetings and the seats available were not lower back friendly. I sat down. Then got up and left.
Got my favourite table at the next cafe that I went to.
Two ladies, a couple of tables away from mine, had an intense discussion on whether one has fried foods and whether the other has sugar at night. They left soon. I don’t know if they had eaten before I had reached.
I heard ‘croissant, butter croissant,’ being ordered confidently from the chatty table just behind me.
I ordered my Benedict and said ‘ham’ when asked, ‘ham or salmon.’ Guess this was the indulgence corner of the small and cosy cafe whose acoustic clarity matches that of the Royal Albert Hall.
Funny how the benedicts in the two cafes differ so much though they belong to the same ownership group. To be honest, there are nuanced differences in benedicts everywhere. Guess it’s not just Indian food that lends itself well to individualisation.
