Too much of same to same thinking. Or is just that these are the dishes.

"Too much of same to same thinking" Oh no !

I thought, "thoughts" were invited, so thought aloud

FYI, only the non veg suggestions are from the past drive menu.
The veg and dessert suggestions are from a Rayalseema cuisine search
since the menu that came from Suraj Grand appeared to lack the Rayalseema flavor or so I thought.

Bajaj saab, do correct me if I'm mistaken and the menu too.

Cheers

Absolutely, I was thinking the same. Poor vegetarians didnt any Rayalaseema options. I suggested to Avi some dishes but your suggestions are specific and right to the point.

I don't mean to nitpick here but on behalf of the vegetarians, that veggie spread seems a little highly priced at 700 bucks which happens to be the same price for non-vegetarians also. They are getting too many goodies extra at the same price, unfair!

We can either try and negotiate a few more veg items for the same price, or try and carve out a differential lower pricing for vegetarians

Just a suggestion by the way, no offense meant to the organizers.

I agree to this. 700 bucks seem a tad too high.

a. differential pricing out of the question.

b. Given that the rate has been fixed, veggies do make your suggestions:
- at best two more items and/or
- amend any or all of the earlier suggestions too.

This will help Avi and Bajaj saab to take this forward.

Certainly. Just add yourself to the list by copying and pasting and then reposting it. And keep glued to this thread for meeting point, departure time, etc. Suggest you to carry water, juice, biscuits, chocolates and such apart from toys and games to keep the kid busy. Meet point may not have a shop nearby but there will be a pit stop enroute for tea for sure.

Alight, I got your reason offline as to why you are excited and also why you are tentative. Look forward to you joining either from Hyderabad or Bangalore

Your point is valid. But, please keep in mind below points and tell me if it's still unfair?

1. Kurnool is a small town and they do not have a buffet concept and they are accommodating this just for us. Besides INR 700/- includes the usage of their AC Banquet Hall

2. These days you will hardly find a Veg & Non-Veg Buffet priced separately in a good restaurant. It's the choice of a person what he eats! Isn't that true be it in Hyderabad or Bangalore?

3. Imagine we had chosen to go Ala-Carte then everyone would have gone bonkers ordering whatever they want and you will certainly end up paying more besides having to wait for ages to get your dishes

4. Finally, even if they agree to separate the cost of Veg & Non Veg, who is going to keep tabs of this situation for such a large gathering? They will just have to go with our word which most hotel establishments would be reluctant to do so

To summarize, What I can do is to request the hotel to see if they can quote a separate price for Veggies which I see are about 7-10 folks till now.

Request others to please specifically mention ONLY if you are a Veggie, rest are all assumed as Non-Veg

Let's see if they agree, if they do not agree Veggie folks who feel price is high are welcome to drop out. Thanks for your understanding !!!

+1 Ravi Sir!...I will speak to the GM and request if pricing can be differentiated

I am a vegetarian.

Please, anyone don't drop out. Food would be icing on the cake but for that prospect of not having icing, we shouldn't drop the cake itself.

Do the best we can and let's just have one memorable drive and meet

Hey mobike008, I agree with your points, it becomes difficult to keep track of who serves what. Probably better off without the differential pricing. No issues.

The "unfair" part was more of a friendly jab at carnivores having too much fun compared to vegetarians . Apologies for that if it came across as nitpicking, no offense meant.

Quote:

Pricing is okay with a hundred bucks here or there, even if we can negotiate 1 or 2 extra veg gravy and starter would be fine was my suggestion too. If possible in the local cuisine like Ravi sir suggested, even better because we get to try something new. If its difficult, I understand.

Well I don't think anyone is going to that extent here to drop out on cost reasons. I merely voiced a suggestion from the point of view of optimizing for vegetarians, nothing more. If it is not possible to work out changes due to whatsoever reasons, its absolutely fine; by all means let us go ahead with the current arrangement, because you are doing your best too. Like the saying goes, too many cooks spoil the broth so we attendees should just sit back and enjoy the meet
