Another Irani cafe story from Fort



Elderly Parsi Customer to white haired Parsi restaurant owner: 

'You look younger every time I see you. What's the secret?

Smiling Parsi restaurant owner:
'Two eggs in the morning'

Dramatic gap ....

'Two pegs in the evening'

Then he draws the customer and me towards him and away from the customer's wife and whispers conspiratorially:

'Two legs at night'

And we all giggled.

The genial and soft spoken owner later had some channa dal cooked in a Parsi style and told me that he doesn't eat eggs, doesn't drink and that on Wednesdays he is vegetarian.

'For good health' he said while I ate my mutton dhansak
