Kappa Chakka Kandhari, Nungambakkam

How can one review a Kerala restaurant without sampling their seafood and beef preparations? So I preferred to go along with a few other foodies, who are quite prominent in the Chennai Food Scene, with a palate for beef and seafood. So this review is a sort of a mix of opinions of a few individuals based on what each one sampled. Lets call them N, G, K and myself. Continue reading

Chennai Food Truck and Music Festival

Chennai Food Truck and Music Festival, the name sounded quite catchy in a place where the concept of food trucks is still to catch up big time! Many years ago, there used to be a lot of them, but gradually they faded away. In the recent past, at least close to ten brands have set up their trucks in various parts of the city. All of them in a single place is something one would look forward to. Food Trucks, Food stalls, and Music, what better way to spend some time on the weekend! Continue reading

OMR FOOD STREET, KANDANCHAVADI

The first time I spotted OMR Food Street on MGR Salai, Kandanchavadi  was when I dined at Spices Kerala restaurant. I made up my mind to try other outlets at the first possible opportunity and managed to tick it off my list, along with a friend of mine. Continue reading

Burmese Food, Second Lane Beach Road, Parrys

I have already written a few times about Burmese food in Chennai and I should admit, I am very fond of it. I have heard from so many sources that the best Burmese food is available in Royapuram, Vyasarpadi, Tondaiarpet, Ennore, and a few other places in North Madras. While I am yet to try from any of these areas, my go to place for Burmese food has been Second Lane Beach Road, in Parrys and I have loved it, every single time. Continue reading

Old Madras Baking Company, T. Nagar

New day, a new beginning! A friend and I decided to check out Old Madras Baking Company for breakfast as we were headed to T Nagar for some work. Only two of their outlets serve breakfast and T Nagar is one of them. Rest of the outlets are primarily bakeries, selling freshly baked goodies ! The moment I think of a typical breakfast with Bread, Eggs, Chicken and Black Coffee, I am literally transported back to my days in Oslo, Norway. Continue reading

Thanjavur Mess, West Mambalam

Thanjavur Mess in West Mambalam is one of the very old joints that serves good vegetarian food. Tired of the usual places in Velachery, a friend and I decided to have breakfast here! Continue reading

Spices Kerala Restaurant, Perungudi

In spite of being active in food circles and closely watching newly opening restaurants, sometimes you miss something so obvious! That was exactly my feeling when I saw OMR Food Street coming up on M.G.R Salai, just opposite to RMZ Millennia Park. Absolutely had no clue of this until today. Continue reading

Eating Circles, Alwarpet

My second visit to Eating Circles, Alwarpet, this time with family. They relished the food as much as I did! I also tried a couple of dishes I missed last time. Continue reading

Nammaa Kitchen, Taramani

One of the fellow foodies in a Facebook food group recommended this place after I posted a review of Madras Takkar for Hyderabadi Biryani. Since then I have been waiting to visit Nammaa Kitchen, on the Velachery-Taramani Main Road. Today, myself and wifey had an opportunity to check this out. Continue reading

Rajdhani Thali Restaurant, Velachery

Rajdhani Thali Restaurant in Phoenix Market City is one of the nice options if you want to have a mix of Rajasthani & Gujarati cuisines in Chennai.  They’ve been having this promotion of ‘Tuesday Thali’ for quite sometime now, and the Thali is priced at 250 Rupees on all Tuesdays. I am not sure if this applies in all outlets, but the one in Phoenix Market City has it. This, I would definitely call a steal. Continue reading
