Veathika Jain’s com­plaint last week about a lack of veg­e­tar­ian op­tions stirred up read­ers on­line

7 Days in Dubai - - LETTERS -

“I agree and em­pathise with you as I my­self feel the same glitch in the non-In­dian restau­rant menus in Dubai when­ever any veg­e­tar­ian friend is ac­com­pa­ny­ing me. Let me tell you that veg­e­tar­i­ans have there own taboos. Many do not eat veg food in restau­rants which also serves non-veg food, or if veg food is placed next to the non-veg food. So the restau­rants in Dubai are fully jus­ti­fied in keep­ing very lim­ited veg items on their list as there are very few open minded veg­e­tar­ian cus­tomers. I feel un­com­fort­able when din­ing out with my pure veg­e­tar­ian (good) friends.”


“Cook at home, most of us love meat to be both­ered by your non­sen­si­cal tantrums, and the con­cept of veg is there only in In­dia - so go to those In­dian veg restau­rants in Old Dubai.”


“You just don’t know where to eat! There is a huge range of veg­e­tar­ian restau­rants here in Dubai. Some western and many eastern. I’m not veg­e­tar­ian but I revel in the op­tions avail­able.”


“I’m a strict veg­e­tar­ian and usu­ally find a rea­son­able choice.” MATTHEW PEN­NEY
