Finger bowl – a bowl full of infection?

with 3 comments

Yesterday at one of the Adiga hotels in Bangalore, I saw this super-efficient waiter prepare finger-bowls for 2 customers.

Placed two bowls, poured steaming hot water into it, picked up a jug of cold water, mixed some cold water into both the bowls.

While walking towards the customer table, he “stirred” the water with his fingers and did a mock-test to ensure the water wasn’t too hot, lest the customer burn his hands.

The customers happily cleaned their hands and lips with this tested & certified water!

I’ll leave the MOS to you. But I decided to never again ask for a finger bowl in any restaurant.

  2. Hmm… you just saw one example. I believe more severe things happen inside a hotel kitchen! Best not to see 🙂
