The other I must mention. About the word mess. When the word mess is included in the name of an Indian eatery. Me interpreting the mess as - an unassuming basic eatery, and where I can expect home style cooking to home style dishes. Sri Ganapathi Mess. Indeed. As I have already said. In other words, a simplified dining area and indeed, home style typical traditional Indian dishes.
We walking in, the three of us, into Sri Ganapathi Mess at about, before the clock has struck twelve noon and. Oh-mamma-mia. What a scene. The scene to busyness of customers eating and the busyness of the staff to serving. The "Amma", the elderly lady, I'm assuming, I may be wrong, I think the owner, who was at the outside dining area. She, my-my, she smiled, she greeted and she gestured Nava K, the modern trendy "My Fifty Five Life" Indian lady to the inside dining area. Oh-lalaalala! The Indian sentiment in me. So touched deepest down, until, my Indian sentiment ran as high and round and round the tree, like in Tamil movies.
What can you expect for your banana leaf lunch in Sri Ganapathi Mess? Anything special? Anything outstanding? Not really. Those fried stuffs, those curries, those side dishes, rasam and papadam. As in other Indian eateries which trend similar banana leaf eating concept.
