The Saturday Special is coming out on Sunday this week, IST, but it's still Saturday somewhere in the world. If you're new to the Green Light Dhaba, welcome! On the weekends, we usually just serve snacks; scroll down, or explore the left side of this page to read from our main menus. If you like what you see, don't forget: subscriptions are free, so there's no need to miss a single issue. Why not grab a feed or follow us?

Last but not least: Nicolas Cage buys way to much stuff!
