Kalpana Andhra Mess, Sholinganallur

This place brings back a lot of memories! It used to be one of our regular lunch places for almost a year during my Accenture days, way back in 2007-2008. Kalpana Andhra Mess is located right outside the old Accenture office, immediately next to the Gateway hotel in Sholinganallur, on OMR. Continue reading

Pupil, Besant Nagar

An outing with the kids to Besant Nagar beach implied that we were going to eat dinner somewhere in the vicinity. Kids were quite particular about Pupil as we have already been there a couple of times and they always liked it. They were in no mood to visit a new place for the sake of my blogging, so I gave up !

Krishna Restaurant, New Woodlands Hotel

Since we had some work in RK Salai, wifey and I decided to have breakfast at Krishna  restaurant in New Woodlands Hotel.  Been there very long ago for a friend’s wedding reception. Never visited this place after that. Continue reading

Murugan Idli Shop, Nanganallur

There was a time when I hated Murugan Idly Shop in T Nagar, I still do.  Never liked the attitude of the guys there! In all these years of eating out, never considered this as an option. My last visit was long long ago! Continue reading

Thambi Vilas, T. Nagar

After a very average experience on my first attempt for a Sunday lunch with family, gathered courage to drop in for the second time, as a solo diner, as this has been one of the places that has had quite a few mixed reviews! One person comes out praising while the other comes out cursing  I really couldn’t draw a conclusion about this place with just one visit ! Continue reading

ABC – Arabi Barbecue Chicken, Adambakkam

Here’s a heads up to Chicken lovers ! One of my friends recommended this place to me and I instantly fell in love with it, purely because this is a Chicken-only joint, and they have 3 varieties of grilled chicken – Regular, Spicy and Pepper! So pretty much the focus is purely on Chicken and it showed. Continue reading

Chakraa Food Truck, Sholinganallur

I should admit this was a bit of gluttony, but what would you do when everything you eat tastes yummy! Yeah, this is one place I have been waiting to visit right from the moment they opened. Crimson Chakra has recently started operations in their first food truck! Long ago, there used to be a few of them in and around Panagal Park and slowly they disappeared. To my knowledge, after many years, in the recent past, Kaaram opened their food truck on Velachery Bypass Road, Chaska near Thiruvanmiyur Beach, and now Chakraa in Sholinganallur. I’ve heard they are yet to finalize the location, and at the moment, they operate from in front of Swaram Speciality Hospital in Sholinganallur. Its on the road connecting OMR and ECR, when driving from OMR towards ECR, you have to make a U-turn before the toll and you’ll spot it on your left hand side. Continue reading
