Mispronounced Food Words By Tomato’s Restaurant 


India’s food culture is booming and we have welcomed foreign cuisine with open arms. We love the taste, we know the recipe, but when it comes to pronouncing it; we just aren’t sure. Most of it has lead to an endless debate among foodies over who is correct and why. Mispronounced Food Words are mocked by several and just makes us feel self conscious for all the reasons under the sun. Tomato’s Restaurant, Ahmedabad, recently put up 10 images on its Facebook page explaining Mispronounced Food Words in two languages (Hindi and Gujarati) to reach out to a larger audience. It’s definitely a tailor made initiative for Indians and Gujaratis in particular. It’s very inspiring to watch restaurants taking a step up and reaching out to their clients by educating them in world cuisines, food culture and how they are pronounced. Well done Tomato’s. The designs are brilliant and so is the idea.

Have a look!


The ‘J’ confuses most of us and we tend to take it in the pronunciation pattern. Surprisingly ‘J’ has nothing to do with it!
