Definition

Euphemism for a restaurant in Tamil Nadu that serves mottai (eggs), mutton rice and chicken chettinad; basically a small town restaurant in Tamil Nadu that serves non-vegetarian food. Apparently being in the military and meat eating is highly correlated for Tamilians, how else do you explain the name. You will also find a slate board with the Words "Meals Ready" make its appearance twice a day "bang outside" the restaurant, at which time tens of folks in lungis and banians can be found making a beeline for hot military meals.

Usage

Meals Ready at Thambi's Military Restaurant. Everyone enjoy lipsmacking mutton rice.
