Madurai Junction, Neelangarai

Very recently happened to see a post on social media about a restaurant called Madurai Junction, couldn’t wait to try! A friend and I had some work in Thiruvanmiyur and immediately decided to check this place out for lunch. Continue reading

Gomathi Mess, Mandaveli

Finally had a chance to taste food at one of the oldest tiffin places in Chennai – Gomathi Mess in Mandaveli. I’ve been hearing about this place from a few foodie friends and decided to try it today, for breakfast. Continue reading

Mami Tiffen Stall, Mylapore

I have heard so much about Mami Tiffen Stall in Mylapore, but never had a chance to try this place until today. A foodie friend and I decided to check this place out and headed to Mylapore. I knew it was roughly near Kalathi Paper Mart, so it was easy to locate. Pleasantly surprised to see the AC dining section which was opened about a month ago. Continue reading

Thanjavur Mess, West Mambalam

Murugan Idli Shop, Nanganallur

There was a time when I hated Murugan Idly Shop in T Nagar, I still do.  Never liked the attitude of the guys there! In all these years of eating out, never considered this as an option. My last visit was long long ago! Continue reading

Thambi Vilas, T. Nagar

After a very average experience on my first attempt for a Sunday lunch with family, gathered courage to drop in for the second time, as a solo diner, as this has been one of the places that has had quite a few mixed reviews! One person comes out praising while the other comes out cursing  I really couldn’t draw a conclusion about this place with just one visit ! Continue reading

Sri Gowri Sankar, Attur

Yummy,  delicious breakfast in Attur!
Hotel Sri Gowri Sankar is located right next to the Bus Stand, opposite to the Periyar Statue. It had a bright board and was hard to miss.  Through there seemed to be a few other restaurants around, somehow this was most prominent among them. Continue reading

Hotel Sri Lakshmi Sagar, Adayar

Hotel Sri Lakshmi Sagar on LB Road, is one of the nice places for a simple no-frills breakfast in Adayar! I’ve been here a few times and food has always been pretty good. Continue reading

Murugan Idli Shop, Velachery

Personally, after a couple of bad experiences with the T Nagar outlet, many years ago, I never really attempted to step into this place. It was more about the attitude of the waiters than the food itself. Their outlet in Kaveripakkam on the Chennai-Bangalore Highway was the one that got me visiting the place again. That is my regular pitstop on my way to Bangalore. I have visited this place quite a few times and one of my visits is documented here ! Continue reading
