Can you buy beef and pork from large grocery stores in India? And does McDonalds have meat in their hamburgers and is there meat on the pizzas?

This query has been posed very recently. See this thread:

Pork and Beef available in Delhi?

Don't you think though that it would be more interesting to sample some Indian cuisine whilst in India?

A word of caution here. One should be careful when buying beef and especially pork. Always buy from reputed shops.

Well Nick you can always find out by asking here, name the city and some local member would certainly chip in. Nah?
The general appearance, over all hygine, location and the clientle give some idea about the shop. Nah?

Ah, yes... Prime purpose of the site. I forgot .



I'm always slightly amused at the Indian use of "reputed", which means having a reputation, but does not imply good or bad!

The English English is "reputable"

McDonald's has chicken in their burgers....they are quite good. At one time they had lamb burgers but those were not available when I was there last winter.

There sure is, but not beef and pork. And the flavors are typically Indian (other
kinds, if available, are very limited in variety and may not be of great quality).
So the pizzas will likely taste very different from what you are used to!

Tsk, tsk. Sentence fragment. And (heh ) when you refer to a word, as distinguished from using it in the sentence, you should put it in quotation marks. For example: "You shouldn't lead a sentence with a conjunction, e.g., 'and' ... " [note single quotation marks inside double quotation marks]. And if anyone would like to know the correct form for citing legal authorities using both the Uniform System of Citation and the California Style Manual, I can help with that, too (you never know when it might come in handy).

Ah, the battle of the pedants is on! Are there any other ways we can take this thread OT, ed? (And y'all thought it was bad when we smacked people for using SMS-speak!)

P.S. I can't believe is just wrote all this cr*p and I'm not even drunk!

Happy New Year, everybody!

You should be Dzi. I am working on a bottle of champagne and tutoring my spouse on the Chicago Style the traditional stuff. Fortunately, my memory, as weak as it is, is hidden by the fact that she is also working on that bottle..

Ummm...the question was about availability of pork on Pizza and not on the taste which is a subjective thing....

And Dominos is not the only place where you get ham on Pizza. Many restaurant in Delhi offer Pepperoni pizza.

The famous Italian restaurant Diva, also has a gourmet Parma Ham Pizza along with many other pork dishes.
