Bengaluru: A video posted by Achim Burkart, who is the German Consul in Bengaluru for Karnataka and Kerala is doing rounds on social media.

“Two hungry Germans on a mission, to order a dosa, but there’s a catch. They have to order it in Kannada,’ the video said.
In the video, aGerman Consul is heard saying “Namaskara, MTR special enu?” (Namaste, what is special at MTR?), to which the MTR staff member replies, “Rava idli and masala dosa.”
“Nanage ondu masale dose kodi (Please get me one masale dose),” says one of the Consul, while the other says “Amele ondu bottle neeru. (one bottle of water please).”
“That’s all the Kannada we know!” the German then exclaims.
At the end of the video, one of the German Consul is heard saying “Sakkathagide” which means the food is very good.
The video won the hearts of Kannadigas and has received over 7k likes.
