Masaledaar Firangi Tadka, Velachery

Masaledaar Firangi Tadka recently opened their outlet in Velachery. I remember hearing about their Nungambakkam branch in food circles, and was quite glad when they opened in Velachery. I was waiting for an opportunity to visit and today a friend and I made up a quick plan to eat lunch here. Continue reading

Pappa Roti, Velachery

This is not quite worthy of being called a review as I barely sampled one standard offering from them. I’ve been seeing absolutely tempting pics of the bun that Pappa Roti serves, so was quite curious to see what the fad was all about ! Continue reading

Rasavid, Velachery

I have been to their Karapakkam outlet a couple of times, and once had food delivered to a friend’s place from their Navalur outlet. Since the time they opened in Thuraipakkam, I have been thinking of visiting them, but guess what? The recently-opened branch at Velachery is the closest it can get for me. Decided to try a casual lunch with wifey here! Continue reading

Viscosity, Velachery

After hearing about this place for quite sometime, finally got a chance to check it out! A couple of friends and I decided to catch up over beer and wanted a place in and around Velachery. Diff 42 and Evoke 2.0 were the obvious choices. Since I have already tried these places, I decided to check out a new place, and I’m glad I did. Continue reading

Jonah’s Bistro, Velachery

Suddenly it felt like quite a long time since we, as a family, went out for dinner. Immediately made up a plan for Saturday evening – a movie at Jazz cinemas, followed by dinner in one of the restaurants in the shopping mall. That was it, we were all set for the evening!
After the movie, we had a quick discussion among ourselves and decided to have dinner at Jonah’s goes to Japan, probably now just called ‘Jonah’s Bistro, Velachery’. I have been here before and have had a good experience, so I was quite sure everything was going to be okay. Continue reading

Evoke 2.0, Velachery

Until a couple of years ago, Velachery was a place with two extremes if you wanted to have a drink. It was either the five-star hotels like Park Hyatt and Westin or the local TASMACs until Diff 42 changed the scene. Since they were the only place in the mid-segment, I felt they went a bit too overboard with their rules. Now there’s another place in Velachery that aims to tap into this space. Decided to check it out, along with a friend of mine. Continue reading

Rajdhani Thali Restaurant, Velachery

Rajdhani Thali Restaurant in Phoenix Market City is one of the nice options if you want to have a mix of Rajasthani & Gujarati cuisines in Chennai.  They’ve been having this promotion of ‘Tuesday Thali’ for quite sometime now, and the Thali is priced at 250 Rupees on all Tuesdays. I am not sure if this applies in all outlets, but the one in Phoenix Market City has it. This, I would definitely call a steal. Continue reading

Pind, Velachery

A lunch outing with dad, and it had to be a vegetarian place. Since we had some plans after lunch, we wanted to eat somewhere in Velachery! We prefer North-Indian to South-Indian anyday, hence Sangeetha, Andhikkadai and the likes were struck off the list. We were left with Haven Sampoorna and Pind, somehow I am a little partial to Pind, just for that paneer! We stepped into Pind around 01:30PM. Continue reading

Chaat Chatore and The London Shakes, Velachery

A cute little place that opened quite recently on the 100-Feet Road in Velachery! I’ve been eyeing this place for a while now, but somehow couldn’t visit. Finally one of my friends came home to meet me, and I dragged him along for a chaat dinner. I couldn’t be happier that I checked it off! Continue reading

The Red Box, Velachery

Recently on one of my drives from Velachery to Taramani, spotted this bright red place called The Red Box, serving Chinese food. I added it to my bucket list, but didn’t quite expect I’d get an opportunity to try it so soon. Its a either home-delivery or takeaway only, and no dine-in! Continue reading
