Tryst Cafe, Neelangarai

A late, relaxed lunch with family was the plan for Pongal festival after puja and an elaborate breakfast at home. It was almost 3PM before we were even remotely close to being hungry. Decided to check out a place with an outdoor sitting. A few names popped up in my mind – Amethyst, Bella Ciao, Shiraz Art Cafe and Tryst Cafe. Few of these places closed around 3PM and 3:30PM and that wasn’t going to work! So wanted a place that was open for all-day dining ! Remembered a recent post from another foodie in one of the Facebook food groups, and immediately decided to try Tryst cafe, and I was glad I did! Continue reading

I almost forgot about it until today, when myself and a friend from the US, were thinking of a place in and around Besant Nagar beach. Immediately remembered this one and decided to go here!

Haven Sampoorna, Velachery

Haven Sampoorna is one of the very nice places for a vegetarian meal in Velachery and I’ve been there a few times already. On the occassion of my Daddy’s birthday, we decided to go here for lunch. Since it was meant to be vegetarian, didn’t think too much. Pind, Peaches and Haven Sampoorna were the places in my mind. Pind wasn’t easily accessible because of some road work, Peaches hasn’t been making any news lately, so decided to go to Haven Sampoorna instead ! Continue reading

North East Kitchen

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
