Yaa Mohaideen, Pallavaram

Around 10PM in the night, myself and a friend decided to catch up over dinner! This isn’t anything new for both of us, so it didn’t seem that late anyway. Partly because it was pending for quite sometime, and also because Biryani pictures were trending in a food group, we decided to give Yaa Mohaideen a shot ! Continue reading

Welcome Hotel, Purasawalkam

We had some work to finish in Purasawalkam and we didn’t expect it to drag until lunch time.  Since we were quite hungry by then, decided to eat at the first restaurant we spotted.  The first one was Hotel Saravana Bhavan, I let it pass.  Second one was Adayar Ananda Bhavan, let that pass too.  Third time’s a lucky charm they say, and sure it was! Spotted Welcome Hotel and stepped into it right away! Continue reading

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

Dallay, Velachery

I’ve been here a few times now, and my last visit to this place was many months ago.  I’ve written about the place a few times and I’ve blogged about it here and here, so I’m not starting all over again ! In short, Dallay, is just opposite to Phoenix Market city in Velachery and serves Tibetan cuisine. Continue reading

Street Food Scene, Besant Nagar Beach

Myself and a friend decided to meet up in Besant Nagar beach this evening! The plan was to chat for sometime, eat food, and leave! It did sound a bit weird, I should admit. We’re used to catching up over a few drinks or a couple of beers followed by dinner, but since we had some work later on, we couldn’t start with a drink. So we had to be contended with just food. Continue reading

Sree Gupta Bhavan, Velachery

Since the time Sree Gupta Bhavan opened on the 100 Feet Road in Velachery, I’ve always liked this place. A brighlty lit place is hard to miss when you drive on this road. We finished some work and decided to have lunch here as kids were feeling hungry. Continue reading
