I do not agree. This is more fundamental than cuisine in the indian context.
Cuisine could be north indian, continental, chinese, american or what have
you. The first point for determination of where to eat is veg/non-veg, as far
as India is concerned. This is evidenced by the government making it mandatory
to specify this by red/green circles on all food. For example take chinese
cuisine (not that chinese in India remotely resembles chinese cuisine), this
is divided again into veg/non-veg. As pointed out this applies also to burger
and pizza joints. So a map catering to indian tastes would make this the prime
designator for restaurants.
