New Town Coffee House

New Town Coffee House was on our to-do list for quite sometime now, and at last managed to visit the place for dinner. It was a very pleasant experience overall, with good food and even better service. Continue reading

Alsa Mall Bread Omelette

This shop is more famous than the mall in front of which it is located ūüėČ This shop has been around for many years and I have never seen this place without a crowd in front of it. ¬†In fact, there are 2-3 shops side by side and all of them are extremely busy in the evenings.
Prices are very nominal and you can get items from Rs 20 to Rs 100 approx. ¬†It is light on the pocket, so it is frequented by college guys and girls in big groups. ¬†In spite of all this crowd, the guy manages to make bread omelettes at lightning speed ūüôā
There are various variants of bread omelette available.  The typical one is the standard one with the green mint chutney.  There are grilled sandwiches with chicken, cheese and other vegetarian variants too.
Parking can be a problem if you travel by car.  Bike is more convenient.  Now and then you would see swanky cars parked on the road side and the drivers getting parcels for their bosses.
Don’t expect the place to be too hygienic. ¬†The bread omelette is served in a paper and it works ! ¬†The place is clean and you can be assured of good food.
Waiting for another chance to drive around Egmore and this is going to be a sure shot !

Chennai Exhibition 2014

Visiting an exhibition is interesting each year, not because there is anything new, but because it gives you an opportunity to cherish simple things that you saw as a kid which you don’t get to see in posh shopping malls. Continue reading

Spoonbill

An ad-hoc dinner, absolutely unplanned.  We were four friends driving back home after a visit to the Trade fair at Island grounds.  On the way back, we decided to have dinner while we were driving on the T.T.K Road.  The next immediate restaurant was Spoonbill and we stopped to have dinner.

High Time

High Time is the bar in GRT Grand Days.  We were four friends catching up after a long time.  We actually decided to go to Anytime, the coffee shop at GRT.  Since it was full, we had to find an alternate place.  As we entered, the place actually had a strong smell of alcohol.  Normally you dont see it in Star hotels.  Some TASMAC AC Bars have this kind of a smell.  The service was ok, but a little too slow to our liking.  The drinks and the side eats were good.  Overall nice time with friends.  Nothing too special to recommend.

Pinkberry

Heard a few times from my wife that this is frozen yogurt and not ice cream !!!  Well, I wanted to try, but did not get an opportunity to do it earlier.  We went to this place and asked for two flavors, unfortunately they were not available РPomegranate and Chocolate were not available.  All that they had was Mango, Green Apple and Salted Caramel.

Hard Rock Cafe

It is not even a week since Hard Rock Cafe opened in Chennai, and already people are raving about it on social networking sites.  So I wanted to check out this place.  It is located in Phoenix Market City in Velachery.  The restaurant/cafe is actually on the second floor, but the Hard Rock Shop is on the first floor.  Overall, the place looked very neatly done.  We were welcomed with a very pleasant smile and the waiter politely introduced himself.
