Thambi Vilas, T. Nagar

After a very average experience on my first attempt for a Sunday lunch with family, gathered courage to drop in for the second time, as a solo diner, as this has been one of the places that has had quite a few mixed reviews! One person comes out praising while the other comes out cursing  I really couldn’t draw a conclusion about this place with just one visit ! Continue reading

ABC – Arabi Barbecue Chicken, Adambakkam

Here’s a heads up to Chicken lovers ! One of my friends recommended this place to me and I instantly fell in love with it, purely because this is a Chicken-only joint, and they have 3 varieties of grilled chicken – Regular, Spicy and Pepper! So pretty much the focus is purely on Chicken and it showed. Continue reading

Chakraa Food Truck, Sholinganallur

I should admit this was a bit of gluttony, but what would you do when everything you eat tastes yummy! Yeah, this is one place I have been waiting to visit right from the moment they opened. Crimson Chakra has recently started operations in their first food truck! Long ago, there used to be a few of them in and around Panagal Park and slowly they disappeared. To my knowledge, after many years, in the recent past, Kaaram opened their food truck on Velachery Bypass Road, Chaska near Thiruvanmiyur Beach, and now Chakraa in Sholinganallur. I’ve heard they are yet to finalize the location, and at the moment, they operate from in front of Swaram Speciality Hospital in Sholinganallur. Its on the road connecting OMR and ECR, when driving from OMR towards ECR, you have to make a U-turn before the toll and you’ll spot it on your left hand side. 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

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
