The following excerpt from 2 States: The Story of My Marriage seems to use the word editorial in a way that doesn't match its definition:
"That's not rasam. Whatever it is, it's definitely not rasam. And what's that, the dark yellow stuff?"
"Sambhar", the mess worker growled.
"Eew, looks disgusting! How did you make it?" she asked.
"You want or not?" the mess worker said, more interested in wrapping up lunch than discussing recipes.
While our lady decided, the two boys between us banged their plates on the counter. They took the food without editorials about it and left.
I thought that editorial means something related to publishing, and not related to food or cooking. The dictionaries I consulted seem to confirm this:
noun 1. An article in a publication giving the opinion of its editors on a given topic or current event.
noun a newspaper article expressing the editor’s opinion on a topical issue
adjective relating to the commissioning or preparing of material for publication
These definitions look irrelevant to the context of the excerpt. Is there another dictionary that gives a more relevant definition? What does editorial mean in this context?
