Soy Soi, Kotturpuram

Some experiences wow you, some barely satisfy you! I would say, my experience at Soy Soi was more like the latter, I’ll tell you why ! Continue reading

Majestic 1963, Nandanam

A late night dinner around 11PM with a friend. Not too many choices on the way back home, decided to try Majestic 1963 in Nandanam, right next to the Audi showroom. Continue reading

Hotel Pandia’s, Royapuram

After looking at the mouth-watering food pictures from Hotel Pandia’s in food groups, added it to my to-do list right away! Yes, I am referring to their branches in North Madras – apparently, there are two outlets in Royapuram and one in Washermanpet. Its only two or three times I have come to this part of the city. Not quite sure with the directions, after enquiring with a couple of auto drivers, spotted one in Cemetry Road in Royapuram, and decided to try! Since they were all the same brand, didn’t feel the need to go all the way to Washermanpet. Continue reading

Shri Gujarati Mandal, Broadway

Amazing start to the day with Gujarati breakfast – Khaman, Khandvi, Fafda with Chutney and Kadhi, pyaaz kachori, Poori Subzi, and Jalebi.  It couldn’t be any better! 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. I added it to my bucket list, but didn’t quite expect I’d get an opportunity to try it so soon. Its a either home-delivery or takeaway only, and no dine-in! Continue reading

E. Sait Biriyani Center, Tambaram

Same starting point, but a different path today! Standing in front of the same name boards M. K. N. Madurai Idly Kadai and E. Sait Biriyani Center, as we did yesterday, we opted for Biryani today.   I have already been to their outlet in Chrompet, so I am aware of how their biryani tastes. Continue reading

MKN Madurai Idly Kadai, Tambaram

Never have I had so much dilemma in choosing what to eat. Standing in front of these two shops, right next to each other in East Tambaram, whether it was Parotta or Biryani for lunch was the question.  Love for Parotta won, and we decided to eat at M. K. N.  Madurai Idly Kadai. Continue reading

Hotel Runs, Adayar

A simple no-frills place which gets its basics right! I have been here a few times, but that was many years ago. As I had some work in Adayar, dropped in for a quick dinner. Continue reading

Eating Circles, Alwarpet

The moment I heard from a few friends in food circles that a place called Eating Circles opened in C P Ramaswamy Road, and it serves the typical Bengaluru/Mysuru Benne Dosa, I decided to check it out right away! It has been a long search in Chennai to get the same texture of Benne Dosa, the typical Bengaluru CTR and MTR types. I can say with confidence that this is the closest, that I have had in Chennai!
