Sri Gowri Sankar, Attur

Yummy,  delicious breakfast in Attur!
Hotel Sri Gowri Sankar is located right next to the Bus Stand, opposite to the Periyar Statue. It had a bright board and was hard to miss.  Through there seemed to be a few other restaurants around, somehow this was most prominent among them. Continue reading

Saravana Naattukkozhi Unavagam, Attur

Naattukozhi Unavagam, Mannpaanai Samayal, Chattikkari, these are terms used to refer to roadside South-Indian eateries on the highways in and around Salem, Erode and Namakkal districts in Tamil Nadu, a sort of a Dhaba you may say, but not Punjabi. They have been around for a few years now, but have been getting a lot of attention on various food groups only in the recent past. One of my friends suggested that we try out one such place for dinner, just on the outskirts of Attur. Continue reading

Inamkulathur Biryani, Trichy

A wonderful trip to Kodaikanal with my classmates from school, and we managed to cover three significant Biryani places during this trip! Quite a few of my friends are from Trichy and they are quite familiar with the places in and around Trichy, especially the ones that serve mouth-watering Biryani. Continue reading

Namaste Restaurant and German Bakery, Mahabalipuram

Myself and three other friends managed a quick weekend getaway to Mahabalipuram and we spotted a nice restaurant in the heart of the town, managed by a family from Nepal! We were there for breakfast on a Sunday morning after quite a heavy drinking session on a Saturday night. 🙂 Needless to say, we were quite tired and hungry and did not want to venture very far for breakfast. Continue reading

Star Biryani, Ambur

On the way back, deliberately timed our start from Bangalore in such a way that we could eat lunch in Ambur. Wasn’t able to do this during my last trips with family. This time, with a friend, did not want to miss this. Reached Ambur around 01:45PM. Now the question was which one of these Star Biryani was the original one? 🙂 Continue reading
