Tips for Travellers

When ordering coffee at a restaurant, especially in south Indian fast-food restaurants, ask specifically for filter coffee - it is made by mixing milk with a concentrated decoction of roasted coffee powder and water. The instant-powder coffee which you get in most places is a sorry sight (and taste) for any coffee lover, being horribly milky and sweet. But filter coffee is excellent. You may even want to buy some when you leave.
