G. Suryanarayana Snacks Center is a must-visit if you love street food from Andhra. This place serves some of the yummiest Punugulu, Mirapakaaya Bajji, Potato Bajji, Samosa and the likes. I have heard from a few people about this place, but never really had a chance to visit. Today, myself and a friend had some work in Pondy Bazaar and immediately this place was on the cards.

Velachery Venkateswara Poli Stall has been here for quite sometime and is a favorite to many. They are located in the Velachery Main road, diagonally opposite to the Nilgiris and the RAMS Flats. Recently, they got a makeover and also started a bakery in the same premises, merging with the adjoining shop. So facility-wise, bigger, airy, more space for customers, etc. Hopefully, they do not lose their quality in an attempt to diversify.
You can see a steady stream of customers always during the evening, pretty much starting at 3PM. They have various bajjis, bondas, samosas, etc typically all items you find in a Poli stall. If you are there at the right time, i.e when a batch of Bajjis are taken out from the oil, you will get to eat piping hot bajjis. That is done in turns, as and when the demand arises and stocks are getting exhausted. So you can expect hot Bajjis all through the evening.
The price is nominal and quality is good. I have eaten here many times, but today when I decided to write about this place, the molaga bajjis were ordinary, nothing worth bragging about :). Normally, they have always tasted good. However, the aloo bonda was good and the small samosas, very yummy !
Overall, a must-visit on a rainy day 😉
