Amazing .. absolutely .. positively .. AMAZING!
Below is another .. different-from-the-above Post .. photo of the Red Flower!
Well for those of you following along here .. this is the seventh (7th) consecutive day beginning last Sunday .. March 10th .. in which I have photographed my Thai Fruit and Vegetable Salad at the Daily Bread Restaurant!
So after seven (7) days the wait-staff are very used to my routine. I get my salad. I ooh and I aah and I fuss over my salad. Then I take numerous photographs of my salad.
Today's salad was so OVER-THE-TOP in being absolutely exceptional .. I was just raving and carrying on about it! .. that one of my waiters disappeared and in the wink-of-an-eye reappeared with ..
THE MAN WHO MAKES THESE SALADS!
YOU ARE .. 'THE' SALAD-MAKING MAN!
As this was all 'playing out' .. I made about ten (10) phone calls to Patti!
Finally I put Patti and the Salad Chef on the phone together!
I don't think he speaks much English BUT Patti and this gentleman talked a minute or so and he seemed to be really enjoying it!
OK 'get-with-me-here'! I asked the Chef ..
"Can I eat the Red Flower?"
He smiled and said .. "Tomato!"
When I gingerly turned the precious little oh-so-very delicate red flower over .. sure enough .. there was his little 'tomato bottom'. Using a razor-sharp-knife the skin of the tomato becomes a delicate red flower!
OH YES ! Below you are now-about-to-meet my two other waiters .. I MEAN WE ARE ALL ROCKING HERE at Daily Bread here in 'Pondi'! ..
"What did you ask?" ..
"Cap! What is it you ABSOLUTELY LOVE ABOUT INDIA!?"
Krishnan Kalai is on the right. Krishnan gave me his e-mail address and I asked him IF he did the internet. He said sure! So I have sent him the above photo and gave him our web site address.
I 'rest-my-case' about LOVING INDIA!
With much joy and much love .. Cap ..
