Maggevala, Kodambakkam

I have been waiting to visit this place since the time they opened. Firstly, because there was a lot of noise on the food groups and people were raving about their dishes! Secondly, I was quite curious and surprised that someone would base their business predominantly on a product that had to go through lot of trouble because it failed lab tests by FSSAI for excessive Lead and MSG in it. After everything was sorted out, finally Maggi appeared in shelves in the stores. This restaurant primarily offers different variants of Maggi, and in different forms too. Continue reading

Pind, Velachery

Once upon a time, this was our favorite place for North-Indian/Punjabi food. Without a slightest hesitation, we would head there most of the time. Call it monotony, or whatever, we gradually stopped going here and it has been many months since I last visited. A friend and I were supposed to catch up with one of our friends who had come down from the US. We decided to try Pind for lunch. I was actually looking forward to the experience, just to see if it was still how I remembered it to be. Continue reading

Kids were quite particular about Pupil as we have already been there a couple of times and they always liked it. They were in no mood to visit a new place for the sake of my blogging, so I gave up !

Chakraa Food Truck, Sholinganallur

I should admit this was a bit of gluttony, but what would you do when everything you eat tastes yummy! Yeah, this is one place I have been waiting to visit right from the moment they opened. Crimson Chakra has recently started operations in their first food truck! Long ago, there used to be a few of them in and around Panagal Park and slowly they disappeared. To my knowledge, after many years, in the recent past, Kaaram opened their food truck on Velachery Bypass Road, Chaska near Thiruvanmiyur Beach, and now Chakraa in Sholinganallur. I’ve heard they are yet to finalize the location, and at the moment, they operate from in front of Swaram Speciality Hospital in Sholinganallur. Its on the road connecting OMR and ECR, when driving from OMR towards ECR, you have to make a U-turn before the toll and you’ll spot it on your left hand side. Continue reading
