Old Madras Baking Company, T. Nagar

New day, a new beginning! A friend and I decided to check out Old Madras Baking Company for breakfast as we were headed to T Nagar for some work. Only two of their outlets serve breakfast and T Nagar is one of them. Rest of the outlets are primarily bakeries, selling freshly baked goodies ! The moment I think of a typical breakfast with Bread, Eggs, Chicken and Black Coffee, I am literally transported back to my days in Oslo, Norway. Continue reading

Nasi Kandar Pelita, T. Nagar

Nasi Kandar Pelita, it used to be our regular lunch place during 2004-2005. Its been a while since I’ve been here !  The last time I was here was after watching the movie Kabali, and I wrote about it here. Continue reading

Courtallam Border Rahmath Kadai, T. Nagar

Call me lucky or whatever, in spite of many complaints on various food groups since the time they started, even after umpteen visits, we have always returned satisfied! Continue reading

The Right Place – The Residency, T. Nagar

Catching up with a friend after a long time, needed a place to sit and talk at length, preferably sipping on cold ones and munching on some side-eats. Decided to go to The Right Place, a coffee-shop in The Residency. Its been a long time since I’ve been here. The Residency used to be one of our very regular hangouts since Tinto days, and for sometime after it changed to Black and White too. 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

Thambi Vilas, T. Nagar

Thambi Vilas, a name that has been making a lot of noise in food circles. I’ve been waiting to visit this place for quite sometime now. Decided to take the family out for a Sunday lunch. Continue reading

Sapthagiri Food Cart, Natesan Park, T Nagar

I have lost count of how many times I have eaten here, but till date, they dish out one of the best Nei(ghee) Podi Dosais in the city ! Based out of a Thalluvandi (foodcart), located adjacent to Natesan Park, diagonally opposite to Hotel Saravana Bhavan, Sapthagiri has withstood the test of time. Continue reading

Nasi Kandar Pelita

Nasi Kandar Pelita, this used to be one of the very regular places for lunch almost 10 years back when I was working in an IT company in T Nagar. A gang of friends used to eat here, at least once or twice a week, for many many months. It used to be one of the most happening eating joints during those times. Continue reading

Shyam’s Bombay Halwa House

My sister’s family invited us out for a dinner outing and I was given the responsibility for choosing a restaurant. Decided to go to Shyam’s Bombay Halwa House as it was meant to be a vegetarian dinner. I’ve heard many things about this place, but never been here earlier. The location was pretty clear as I was quite familiar with this area, G N Chetty Road in particular. Continue reading

AB’s Absolute Barbecues

In all probability, I might be in the minority in calling this place ‘good, nothing extraordinary’ ! Finally managed to push myself to Absolute Barbecues, more than a year after they opened. I was quite keen on visiting this place as soon as they opened, but after a couple of unsuccessful attempts to reserve a table on phone, and a couple of failed walk-ins, I gave up. Since then I have never attempted to visit this place. Continue reading
