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

Hotel Saravana Bhavan, Pazhavanthangal

My good luck with Hotel Saravana Bhavan continues !
I have visited quite a few HSB outlets, and the ones that I frequent are Venkatnarayana Road and Alandur/Pazhavanthangal. In spite of all the complaints of drooping standards, mediocre food, etc, I have personally not faced anything worth complaining ! Yes, I am certainly of the opinion that they are pricey for the quantity they offer, but taste-wise, I’m quite satisfied. Continue reading

Guntur Gongura, Sholinganallur

How can EVERYTHING go wrong in a meal?!?!? This beats me !
To sum up in a line, it would be ‘Average food coupled with bad service and even worse attitude‘ ! That’s my lunch experience at Guntur Gongura, Sholinganallur. Continue reading

The Dhonnai Biryani House, Thuraipakkam

The Dhonnai Biryani House – Naidu Military Hotel – Jai’s Kitchen, in Thuraipakkam! This place has quite a few names on the board, so just mentioned all of them.  Continue reading

Rasavid, Karapakkam

Rasavid, a name that I have been hearing for a long time now, primarily for their Hyderabadi Biryani ! Somehow never managed to visit them for a dine-in, but long ago, I have ordered once from them and I loved it. Continue reading

Kalpana Andhra Mess, Sholinganallur

This place brings back a lot of memories! It used to be one of our regular lunch places for almost a year during my Accenture days, way back in 2007-2008. Kalpana Andhra Mess is located right outside the old Accenture office, immediately next to the Gateway hotel in Sholinganallur, on OMR. Continue reading

Kumbakonam Mess, Nanganallur

A little place on the Nanganallur 2nd Main Road. Tasty, decent tiffin for dinner. Absolutely VFM, no complaints about what I had! Continue reading

Pupil, Besant Nagar

An outing with the kids to Besant Nagar beach implied that we were going to eat dinner somewhere in the vicinity. Kids were quite particular about Pupil as we have already been there a couple of times and they always liked it. They were in no mood to visit a new place for the sake of my blogging, so I gave up ! Continue reading

Krishna Restaurant, New Woodlands Hotel

Since we had some work in RK Salai, wifey and I decided to have breakfast at Krishna  restaurant in New Woodlands Hotel.  Been there very long ago for a friend’s wedding reception. Never visited this place after that. Continue reading

Murugan Idli Shop, Nanganallur

There was a time when I hated Murugan Idly Shop in T Nagar, I still do.  Never liked the attitude of the guys there! In all these years of eating out, never considered this as an option. My last visit was long long ago! Continue reading
