Sometimes I need to eat something else other than rice, chapatis and dhal. I went out for Pad Thai Gai noodles at a fashionable restaurant in South Delhi. It was called Mamagoto, “a funky Japanese chain with a lively vibe”. Quite. The music was so deafening, we asked them to turn it down a few notches…they did, from 11 to 9.
The decor was outrageous. There was a blue polar bear suspended from the ceiling, for example. I liked the epigram over the door, “We don’t know what Confucius says. We are too busy eating.” I enjoyed the flying pig and psychedelic hexagons on the wall.
And the food was great.
