Weekend Breakfast

green-house-restaurant One of the treats we gave ourselves in Ahmedabad was breakfast at the house of MG on Saturday or Sunday.  You already know I loved  Indian poha( https://talesalongtheway.com/?s=Poha for breakfast, but there was just something about the weekends that made us want a more traditional American breakfast. It was an effort to get there, catching a rickshaw and a 20 minute ride over the river, but well worth it. The top pictures shows the more informal Green House where breakfast and lunch is served at the House of MG. ahmedabad

You can see the seating with lots of lovely plants to give the restaurant its name.

breakfast menu-1My architect usually had an omelet,but I preferred the  waffles with honey, a new taste but lovely.  There is no maple syrup available in India. This was the only place where I would drink juice and eat some of the lovely fruit.  And I never had a problem. We figured that the standards must be pretty high for sanitation because of  all the international guests. One highlight in India is the beginning of mango season which began at the end of April. Restaurants  all displayed Mango Festival Signs and all sorts of mango dishes are available. There are hundreds of types of mangoes native to  India. There is quite a discussion of which is the “best”, but generally we heard that Alphonso was the winner. They have a rich flavor and delicious juice.  The Green House was no exception!When returning home to New York, I was thrilled to learn that the Indian grocery stores here go to New York City , shop and have available  on Thursdays,  crates of fresh mangoes either grown in India or Mexico!


The absolutely favorite part of the meal would be cappuccino, yes  delicious hot Italian coffee with the foamy milk. We would always splurge and have one at the beginning and another for desert at the end. Lovely way to start the day!


Now if you refer back to the first image. I am pretty sure that either Mohammed or Sunil had that rickshaw conveniently parked to take the satisfied tourists  out and about  to cease the day in Ahmedabad.
