Since 1986, Annalakshmi in Singapore has been serving pay-as-you-wish meals to people based on the Hindu philosophy of ‘Atithi Devo Bhava” (guest is God), so that no one will be turned away just because they could not afford a meal. Using recipes passed down orally by grandmothers and mothers from the first generation of volunteers, the restaurant has seen close to 700 recipes originating from different parts of India! For some, it may just be a buffet spread but for many of the regulars, it is a familiar taste of home.
