Spotted on the streets of Leh:
I spent hours and hours walking in Leh, up and down the narrow market roads, chatting with the street vendors, stopping for coffee and snacks at the German Bakery, watching people and generally having (my idea of) a perfect holiday. After those alluring road signs all over Ladakh, what I loved most were these signboards in front of restaurants in Leh. Most restaurants were still shut for the off-season months when we were in Ladakh (this May) but the ones that were open called out to tourists with these inviting boards.
I mean, how, just how, can anyone resist those sexy Thai soups and Lazy Italian pastas? But here is the thing, what exactly makes a soup sexy? Why then can’t they add that to their noodles and curries too?
In another context, I had
blogged cribbed about the Lonely Planetization of travel (food, specifically) – but signboard-spotting can still be great fun.
Some of them, though, like this one, start with great promise (Banana fat?!) but get all sober and correct by the time they end…
