Spot The Desi #6

America's fastest growing quiz show sensation returns...Spot The Desi!

For those of you new to this, this is a part of my ongoing efforts of helping people develop desar (desi radar) in order to identify P.O.H.I.P's (Places Of High Indian Probability) and subsequently spotting desis

Okay this one is actually pretty easy. For your intermediate and expert level candidates consider yourself shamed if you can't get this one.

1. Turkish restaurant
2. People speaking Hindi gibberish
3. One person has big white sneakers

Presto. That wasn't so hard was it?
