Bhangra, Kanathur, Chennai

Everytime we visit Mayajaal, invariably the next question in our minds would be where to eat! The food court in Mayajaal was never in consideration as it was not even appealing! However, this time, the food court was much better looks-wise! However, we had made up our mind to visit Bhangra, a Punjabi restaurant in Mayajaal. Continue reading

The Red Box, Velachery

Recently on one of my drives from Velachery to Taramani, spotted this bright red place called The Red Box, serving Chinese food.
