Meatless Monday: Houston’s Pondicheri

Happy Meatless Monday! Today the hubby and I are in Houston working on a short documentary film with Rice University Art Gallery. Our film is following Vietnamese artist Dinh Q. Lê, and is the eighth film in our short documentary series for Rice Gallery.

Christine Medina, Rice Gallery Manager, planned today’s lunch for the whole crew. Being the wonderful lady she is, she ordered lunch from Pondicheri, a local Indian fusion restaurant that celebrates Meatless Mondays. From Pondicheri’s Website:

All day Monday, we offer an all-vegetarian menu with our weekly menu’s vegetarian dishes in addition to these specials served only on this day. we have chosen to serve no meat one day a week so that we may, in this small way, lessen our impact on the environment and promote a healthier society.

The weather was absolutely perfect for an outdoor lunch in front of Rice Gallery. I also have lots of Peanut Noodle leftovers for dinner tonight. Thanks again to Christine for putting together such a nice lunch, now it’s time to get back to work!
