While my friend and I were looking for a place to have lunch in and around Egmore, my friend suggested Abhinandan restaurant in Hotel Ashoka, one of the very old places, still charming in its own way! We walked into a huge property, neat and spacious. Instantly it got my friend nostalgic. He had memories of staying in this property along with his family as a kid during his Chennai visits.

Myself and a friend decided to try North East Kitchen in Egmore. I knew it was predominantly Beef and Pork dishes there, and I was probably going to be in the minority, to go there just for Chicken dishes. Surprisingly there were quite a few asking for Vegetarian Thalis. That made me feel a lot better. Continue reading
Even after having watched the special show of Kabali on the very first day, I am not the kind who would let go of an opportunity to watch it again the next day!! Immediately called my friend and we decided to take our family along to the movie! Needless to say, kids were thrilled. It was a noon show at Devi theatre and the movie finished around 3PM. We hadn’t eaten lunch, so decided to go somewhere for a late lunch. Again, some compulsions to keep it vegetarian, decided to head to Mathsya in Egmore ! Continue reading
It has been a while since we had a family outing for lunch. In fact, first for this month. Since it was an auspicious day, we decided to keep this strictly vegetarian 🙂 Continue reading
This shop is more famous than the mall in front of which it is located 😉 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 🙂
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 !
