Dallay, Velachery

I’ve been here a few times now, and my last visit to this place was many months ago.  I’ve written about the place a few times and I’ve blogged about it here and here, so I’m not starting all over again ! In short, Dallay, is just opposite to Phoenix Market city in Velachery and serves Tibetan cuisine. Continue reading

Sree Gupta Bhavan, Velachery

Since the time Sree Gupta Bhavan opened on the 100 Feet Road in Velachery, I’ve always liked this place. A brighlty lit place is hard to miss when you drive on this road. We finished some work and decided to have lunch here as kids were feeling hungry. Continue reading

Haven Sampoorna, Velachery

Haven Sampoorna is one of the very nice places for a vegetarian meal in Velachery and I’ve been there a few times already. On the occassion of my Daddy’s birthday, we decided to go here for lunch. Since it was meant to be vegetarian, didn’t think too much. Pind, Peaches and Haven Sampoorna were the places in my mind. Pind wasn’t easily accessible because of some road work, Peaches hasn’t been making any news lately, so decided to go to Haven Sampoorna instead ! Continue reading

Aki Bay

Aki Bay, a place where I’ve been wanting to go for a long time now. Seen quite a few pictures of the gorgeous Ramen bowls and was quite tempted to try. My wife and I managed to visit today, and it was a very different, pleasant dining experience overall! 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

Mainland China, Phoenix Market City

It was my son’s Birthday dinner and we gave him the option of choosing what to have for dinner and he chose Chinese. Basically he wanted dumplings, noodles and stuff. The nearest option was Mainland China in Phoenix Market City. We have been here a few times and had a pretty decent experience, always. Decided to stick to this place. However, I spotted the Thuraipakkam outlet on Zomato serving dinner buffet, and was quite excited! We headed all the way from Velachery to Thuraipakkam only to be told its closed ! Damn it, even Zomato screws up sometimes! Made a U-turn and headed all the way back to Phoenix Market City. We lost a good 40 minutes doing this, and of course the to-and-fro toll charges that we paid for nothing ! Continue reading

Bistro 100

I’ve been seeing this place for quite sometime now as its just a stone’s throw away from my place. Recently there has been a lot of interest among foodies on Facebook groups about this place, and I decided to check it out ! True to its name, Bistro 100 is more than just a cafe, the menu was elaborate and had a wide range of varieties to choose from. Continue reading
