Zoho CEO Sridhar Vembu Orders ‘Garlic-Infused Cappuccino’; Netizen Calls It, “Coffee Decoction In Rasam”

Has it ever happened to you that you visit a very fancy restaurant and the items on the menu look way more fancy, but when the dish arrives, it is nothing but a simple dish? Well, I am sure that all of you must have experienced this once. Zoho CEO Sridhar Vembu experienced something similar when he ordered ‘garlic-infused black gram cappuccino’. Netizens completely agreed with him when he shared the same on social media platforms. 

Zoho CEO Sridhar Vembu Orders ‘Garlic-Infused Cappuccino’

In order to explain his feelings about getting a “garlic-infused black gram cappuccino with rye lavash” at a “way-too-fancy” restaurant, Zoho CEO Sridhar Vembu recently drew on a Buddhist proverb.

He ordered a “garlic-infused black gram cappuccino with rye lavash” from a way too fancy high-end restaurant and then posted about the same. He used a quote that said “Pain is real; suffering is optional.”. 

He posted a picture of the menu cropping the name of this coffee on X (formerly known as Twitter). The post has by far received over 69.4K views on the platform and more than 500 likes. Many people commented on the post, showing that many of them agreed with what he wrote.

Pain Is Real

Zoho CEO Sridhar Vembu’s perspective was shared by another user, who wrote: “Pain is real; suffering is optional. But sometimes, it’s also worthwhile. Another person responded with their own account of a mushroom cappuccino, describing how it was simply soup that had been frothed up to resemble a cappuccino.

Some people made an attempt to explain the bizarre mixture; one said it might be a unique rendition of “black coffee decoction in kala chana daal with bread.” Someone may have mistakenly combined coffee decoction with rasam (a South Indian soup), another person jokingly speculated.

There have always been bizarre food combinations and names of the same, which have completely blown the minds of audiences in the past. People end up ordering stuff and getting tricked by the name, and then what they receive is sometimes not worth it.
