Bhangra, Kanathur, Chennai

Everytime we visit Mayajaal, invariably the next question in our minds would be where to eat! The food court in Mayajaal was never in consideration as it was not even appealing! However, this time, the food court was much better looks-wise! However, we had made up our mind to visit Bhangra, a Punjabi restaurant in Mayajaal. Continue reading

Abhinandan, Hotel Ashoka, Egmore

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.

Amazing start to the day with Gujarati breakfast – Khaman, Khandvi, Fafda with Chutney and Kadhi, pyaaz kachori, Poori Subzi, and Jalebi.  It couldn’t be any better! Continue reading

MKN Madurai Idly Kadai, Tambaram

Never have I had so much dilemma in choosing what to eat. Standing in front of these two shops, right next to each other in East Tambaram, whether it was Parotta or Biryani for lunch was the question.  Love for Parotta won, and we decided to eat at M. K. N.  Madurai Idly Kadai. Continue reading

Eating Circles, Alwarpet

The moment I heard from a few friends in food circles that a place called Eating Circles opened in C P Ramaswamy Road, and it serves the typical Bengaluru/Mysuru Benne Dosa, I decided to check it out right away! It has been a long search in Chennai to get the same texture of Benne Dosa, the typical Bengaluru CTR and MTR types. I can say with confidence that this is the closest, that I have had in Chennai!

Rayar’s Mess, Mylapore

Everytime I have been here, it has been the same story – a minimum wait of 30-35 minutes to get a table and a steady stream of customers. Has my opinion of the place changed? Not really! Rayar’s Mess located in Arundale Street, in Mylapore is what we’re talking about ! Continue reading

The Cycle Gap, Anna Nagar

Finally managed to visit this upscale bar, restobar, pub, however you’d like to call it, The Cycle Gap in Anna Nagar is the new happening place, and one of its kind in that locality. Last two weeks have been a bit busy, hence this review comes a couple of weeks late. Continue reading

Paradise, Perungudi

The mere mention of the word ‘Biryani’ stirs emotions, in a positive way! With so many different styles of biryani based on geography, people get very possessive about ‘their’ style. In fact one of the quotes that I’ve heard from the food circles sums it up nicely – ‘One man’s biryani is another man’s tomato rice‘ ! Continue reading
