What do you do the morning after it has rained all night? Sit outdoors and enjoy a long, quiet breakfast while the raindrops fall off the bamboo! 💚
5 years ago we put two tables under the bamboo thicket. Not sure at all if that would work, we convinced regular guests & friends to sit outdoors. Most thought we were nuts - sit outdoors, mid afternoon, in Chennai!! But they humoured us :) And whatdoyouknow - they enjoyed it! There is something downright enjoyable about sitting under the trees, listening to the birds and enjoying the breeze (we are only a few km away from the sea). Those guests came back and requested to sit outdoors! Yaaaaay :-) What more encouragement did we need? More tables came out, all around the bamboo. With enough space to still let it grow and do its things. .
The outdoor seating has gotten so popular that we hardly ever get to sit there anymore! But this morning, for a short while, it was all ours :) And we enjoyed every minute of it :)
