A Road Side Lunch in India

I am not sure about the math but if I have eaten close to 53 655 meals in my lifetime, this one road side lunch in Rajasthan, India stands out as one of my most interesting ones. Sitting on a ” ? ” , I ate alongside other local people as they sat on a ” ? ” for a delicious Indian meal right along the main road. The equivalent to pulling into a McDonald’s on a highway road trip but only a BILLION times better and more memorable. India wins hands down in the “experiences you will never forget” category!

    Hey! That “?” in your post is actually called a “Charpai”. the word char means four and pai means legs. SO basically is means four legs! It’s pretty common in India. And usually the roadside food places are called “Dhabas” and they have some of the best possible food.
    Oh and I am loving reading all your posts about India. 🙂

      Thank you. I don’t think I ever knew the word for the structure but of course, 4 legs makes sense. I do remember now that you reminded me 🙂 of the word dhabas. They are so much fun! Such character in all that India has to offer… from its people to its food to its tables!
