If you come from a quintessential desi parivaar, you would know what a task eating at a restaurant and choosing food for your family is like. You almost always go out for Indian food (even though that’s what you eat at home every day) and someone from the group would say, “Chi! Yeh daal hai? Mummy better banati hai!”
And one guy took to Twitter to perfectly explain what eating outside with your desi family is like and it is accurate AF!
Taking an asian family to a food spot is so difficult, My mum will say she can cook it better, my dad will say its not worth the money my sister will say its shit then take her friends there the next week and my brother will just sit there eating like the fat fuck he is

Others too joined the conversation and added other essential details that were missed. For example, our Dadis will never like outside food!
Don’t forget grandma wanting to order something else because she doesn’t like the way her food tastes/looks https://t.co/WeVgYkGtRz

Our mothers will throw a tantrum and our dads will agree!
My mom would always say shit like this or say that something is too oily, sweet, or spicy😂 https://t.co/JsuPexX5Ns

Desi people online couldn’t get over how relatable this was. Many asked, “Do we live the same lives?”
And this is exactly why I stopped trying to take my family new places to eat 🙃 https://t.co/cJ3DtSv4Wa
