A hut shaped restaurant?
« on: October 24, 2006, 04:07:29 AM »
Is there any particular word for a hut shaped restaurant with only dried leaves forming the roof and no walls in the real sense...maybe just a 2 feet high wooden fence on all sides, with a small gap for entering and exiting...

I am lost. Any kind of suggestions are welcome. Thank you.

I saw lots of these - just as you describe them - along the coast in Goa.  They were just called beach hut cafes.  The food was delicious and cheap too.  :)

The only hut-shaped restaurant I've ever come across sold nothing but pizza.

I'm with Lorraine on this one. My favourite was 'Sun & Sea'. The Calangute/Baga - Goa beach hut cafes all had names. Bob Marley's cafe was noisy with endless BM songs. Hope this helps.

Thank you Lorraine, Stupot and AndyKemp for the useful inputs. Yes, I think I'll just call it the beach cafe. Thanks again.

I wrote something which was set in a place like this. My character sat at the bar and looked out at the sea through "palm thatched eaves". I hoped it might create the mental image.

That does create a great image in mind, Lucidus. It must have been an interesting piece.

Thanks.
