Hotel Crescent, Nungambakkam

What better than a non-vegetarian breakfast on a Sunday Morning ! Most of the places I know serve Idiyappam and Mutton Paya for breakfast. Since I have restrictions by choice to eating red meat, my friend suggested that I should head to Hotel Crescent in Nungambakkam for tasty Kerala Chicken dishes. In spite of hearing about this place, haven’t been there ever, so decided to tick this place off my list. I should admit that I have a liking for Kerala food, so there was no looking back.

Petuk

This is my third or fourth time at Petuk, and like always, it was a very pleasant dining experience. I have written about my first visit here.
Myself and a friend decided to eat dinner together and we zeroed in on Bengali food, and in this part of Chennai, clearly Petuk rules this space. So we didn’t bother checking anywhere else. In fact, the spark started off when I heard that Petuk now has a small stand & eat outlet called Petuk Express, recently opened on M.G.R. Salai. We decided to eat an Egg Chicken Roll, but then the plan changed and we decided to have an elaborate dinner instead. Continue reading

Thai Food House

There is a reason why people say abstinence is the only fool-proof way of losing weight. ‘Moderation’ is a myth as far as my eating out is concerned. You realize that when all meetings end with a lunch or dinner. It was one such day myself and a¬†friend decided to have dinner after meeting another friend on Chamiers Road. Not knowing where to go, took a left into the TTK Road, and immediately spotted this place. Looked no further, decided to eat here ! Continue reading
