Land in Mumbai, walk into the hotel restaurant for a quick meal. The hotel staff come by to leave this on my table as company given I was eating alone. So nice & thoughtful and something that's never happened in all my travel thus far😊! #CustomerExperiencepic.twitter.com/YCsL5riQWK— Prakash Mallya (@PrakashMallya) 7 August 2019

So cute. I just hope the fish are well cared for. It would be nice if they lived in a large tank that they are just scooped from and bowled when someone is eating alone.— Anna Slatz (@YesThatAnna) 8 August 2019
In Thailand and Japan, Moomin Cafes will give you a giant stuffed Moomin if you are eating alone. pic.twitter.com/M8hSIlXBBo
I can relate. I had a meal on my own on holiday in Mexico but was joined by a lovely gecko on the other side of the window I was sitting next to. I've never forgotten it. 🦎💕— Stephanie O'Rourke (@StephS77) 8 August 2019
I've never minded eating alone, but that's really that's lovely.— Sister Resister 🌊 (@jes_my3) 8 August 2019
