Egg merchant in Vadodara (Baroda)
The Natraj Hotel in Porbandar has a rooftop restaurant, where breakfast can be served. As we were not keen on eating our morning meal on our laps in a bedroom yet again, we sat in the restaurant. It is only open at breakfast time. Once, it had been open for other meals, but no longer. We tried ordering eggs, which were on the breakfast menu. We were told that they could not be served in the restaurant, but only in the bedroom. When we asked why, the waiter informed us that the restaurant is: “pure vegetarian”. Curiously, eggs can be cooked in the restaurant’s kitchen where ‘pure vegetarian’ food is prepared, but they could not be served in its dining room.
Note: Vegetarianism is widespread in Gujarat
