baDavara mane ooTa chenna doDDavara mane nOTa chenna

ಬಡವರ ಮನೆ ಊಟ ಚೆನ್ನ ದೊಡ್ಡವರ ಮನೆ ನೋಟ ಚೆನ್ನ

Literal Meaning - "The food in a poor man's home is tasty; while the rich man's home is nice to look at"

This Gaade is used to highlight the fact that hospitality and friendliness have nothing in relation to money and position. A poor man treats guests well and feeds them good while a rich man may be interested in only building upon his wealth and displaying it.

This Gaade is used in situations when a wealthy man "shows off" his wealth or when one receives good treatment from a poor man.
