Rayar’s Mess, Mylapore

Everytime I have been here, it has been the same story – a minimum wait of 30-35 minutes to get a table and a steady stream of customers. Has my opinion of the place changed? Not really! Rayar’s Mess located in Arundale Street, in Mylapore is what we’re talking about ! Continue reading

Hotel Saravana Bhavan, Pazhavanthangal

My good luck with Hotel Saravana Bhavan continues !
I have visited quite a few HSB outlets, and the ones that I frequent are Venkatnarayana Road and Alandur/Pazhavanthangal. In spite of all the complaints of drooping standards, mediocre food, etc, I have personally not faced anything worth complaining ! Yes, I am certainly of the opinion that they are pricey for the quantity they offer, but taste-wise, I’m quite satisfied. 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

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

Welcome Hotel, Purasawalkam

We had some work to finish in Purasawalkam and we didn’t expect it to drag until lunch time.  Since we were quite hungry by then, decided to eat at the first restaurant we spotted.  The first one was Hotel Saravana Bhavan, I let it pass.  Second one was Adayar Ananda Bhavan, let that pass too.  Third time’s a lucky charm they say, and sure it was! Spotted Welcome Hotel and stepped into it right away! 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
