No eggs in Egg plant…

Filed under: Food,Fun,Language — ramsblog @ 10:27 pm

We were talking about how amazing the languages are. some one mentioned about  “no eggs in egg plant” and that reminds me of my first experience ordering pizza at a pizza place in New Jersey. I was about a week or two in this country and was trying Pizza for the 2nd time. We asked for a slice of vege pizza and here goes the conversation:

Me: a slice of vege pizza please
PizzaGal: toppings?
Me: what are the options?
PizzaGal: onions, tomatoes, egg plant, …
Me: no eggs please! No meat please!
PizzaGal: that’s right, no eggs, it’s a vegetable
Me: (confused) that’s alright – no egg plant

It was quiet sometime when I learned about egg plant is indeed a vegetable 🙂

  2. @My3: I did not eat egg plant initially in the US until confirmed it was a vegetable indeed and it was our known brinjal 🙂
    LadyFinger (i mean Okra) is my favorite.. 🙂
