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

Hotel Crescent, Nungambakkam

A friend and I decided to head to one of the places that is known for wonderful non-vegetarian fare for breakfast – Hotel Crescent, in Nungambakkam. I have been there a few times, and always for the Sunday Breakfast. I have written about my first experience here! Continue reading

Hotel Crescent, Nungambakkam

What better than a non-vegetarian breakfast on a Sunday Morning ! Most of the places I know serve Idiyappam and Mutton Paya for breakfast. Since I have restrictions by choice to eating red meat, my friend suggested that I should head to Hotel Crescent in Nungambakkam for tasty Kerala Chicken dishes. In spite of hearing about this place, haven’t been there ever, so decided to tick this place off my list. I should admit that I have a liking for Kerala food, so there was no looking back.

Mana Andhra

An absolutely unplanned dinner. Had to meet someone in Cafe Coffee Day, The Square in Nungambakkam. The meeting took much longer than expected and quite hungry that we were, headed straight into this place which is right next to Cafe Coffee Day in Khader Nawaz Khan Road, in Nungambakkam.

Anise, Taj Coromandel

When I need a beer or two well past midnight, the first name that comes to my mind is Anise in Taj Coromandel in Nungambakkam. I like The Flying Elephant in Park Hyatt too, and it is even closer to home, but they have some limitations with Stags entry on weekends. Didn’t want to take a chance and end up in The Dining Room, headed straight to Taj Coromandel instead. Continue reading

Sandy’s Chocolate Laboratory

Myself and a friend had to meet someone in Khader Nawaz Khan Road in Nungambakkan, and the moment you hear ‘KNK Road’, you know you’re going to eat in one of the nice places in that area. I have visited quite a few restaurants there, but this time, I ticked off one of the nice places which has been on my list for too long. It is not that I haven’t heard about Sandy’s Chocolate Laboratory earlier, but just did not manage to get a seat the last two times I tried. Continue reading

Jakob’s Kitchen

When you have to meet someone in Khader Nawaz Khan Road ( At Cafe Coffee Day, The Square), chances of coming back home without having dinner in one of the places around are very remote, especially when the meeting lasts until 09:00PM. Continue reading

Maplai

Okay, a business lunch I couldn’t avoid. 😉
Since we had to meet a few people in Nungambakkam, decided to try Maplai. I’ve been here before and it wasn’t a wow experience then, so wanted to try after about 5 months. Continue reading

Anise – Taj Coromandel

Haven’t been here too many times and invariably visit this place when we run out of options in the city for a drink, after midnight. Same was the case this time and myself and a friend stepped in for a couple of beers. Decided to stick on to the usual place Anise. Started with a couple of beers. After an hour or so, began to feel hungry and we wanted to eat something. Continue reading

New Yorker

After attending the Annual Day function of my son’s school at Kamarajar Arangam in Teynampet, all of us were quite tired and hungry. It was already around 20:00 Hrs and didn’t have the patience to drive back all the way to Velachery. Continue reading
