Namaste Restaurant and German Bakery,  located in Othavadi Street, Mahabalipuram !  I’ve been here earlier for breakfast with friends and have blogged about it here. This time, I went with family for lunch! 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

Foodie Experiences in Oslo, One More Time!

I have lived in Oslo for about three years from 2008-2011 and since then, I travel once or twice every year and the trip generally is for a couple of weeks. This time it was a bit longer than expected and was almost for a month. During this time, I did not attempt to cook (in spite of having a kitchenette in the place I stayed) and preferred eating out all days. Continue reading

Santana, Mahabalipuram

Hotel Santana Beach in Mahabalipuram is a budget hotel and situated right on the edge of the beach ! You just can’t get any closer to the beach .  The restaurant in the ground floor was being renovated and they had a restaurant on the second floor that was open! 🙂 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

New Udupi Upahar, Bangalore

Being in Bengaluru and having very limited time at my disposal and absolutely no clue of the geography, could not make it to some of the best places I’ve heard – SreeSagar CTR, MTR, Veena Stores, Vidhyarthi Bhavan.  All of them somehow are around Basavangudi and Malleswaram I think. So the best I could do was try some Udupi restaurant close to where I stayed, in Kalyan Nagar. Continue reading

The Biere Club, Bangalore

Visiting a microbrewery has been on my mind for so long. Since my trips to Bangalore are always very short, couldn’t make it until now. Finally visited The Biere Club on Vittal Mallya Road last weekend which was again a trip with a friend. A wonderful place, nice variety of beers, good tasty food and a very lively atmosphere! Continue reading

Murugan Idli Shop, Kaveripakkam

A quick weekend trip to Bangalore and we decided to have breakfast at Murugan Idli Shop on the Chennai-Bangalore Highway, before Vellore.  I’m not a big fan of MIK, but in the middle of nowhere, it did seem inviting! Neat restrooms, nice clean place overall! Continue reading

Foodie Experiments in Oslo Again

I am not going to elaborate on each dish I ate while I was in Oslo, but pretty much quickly will summarize what I tried!  Compared to my earlier experience in Oslo during my last trip, this wasn’t as elaborate ! Continue reading
