Soy Soi

The new fancy place in town is “Soy Soi”, I kept saying their name aloud just because it sounds like a tongue twister 😀 The place is right on the main road and they have valet parking for cars and for two wheeler, the side road can be used. The place is like a dark…

Maggevala

Maggie and a hostelier go hand in hand. The best friend you turn to when mess food is bad! A kind of friend who is always there for you Why the Maggie sentiments suddenly? Well I went to a Maggie centered cafe. Located in Kodambakkam, the place is easy to spot but parking cars would…

Dragon’s Den

It is blissful when someone else suggests a place and vouches that the place is extremely good. Dragon’s Den in Adyar, Chennai, was jam packed when we walked in on a Sunday night but luck favoured us and we were soon seated. For four wheeler parking, they do not have valet but the cars are…

Mami Tiffin Stall

For the first time I went to the Mylapore temple festival. Don’t take me wrong… I went in search for the street food stalls. We sadly did not find the stalls we anticipated would be there.  So we ended up at Mami tiffin stall  Adai is served with aviyal and with a small quantity of…

Lloyd’s Tea House

Saturday morning quick breakfast before office was the plan! But the delay in getting the food and the empty cafe made me go in a little late to office! Let’s hope no one from office reads this and the grapevine reaches, you know where!  This cafe in Gopalapuram inspires one to travel, that even their…

Waffles Thru The Day

Before you you step in, let us forget calories  We went there on Women’s Day, and after a smiling wish, the staff informed that coffee was on the house for the women dining at Waffles. From the Menu, we ordered an egg less waffles with bananas and a stuffed mushroom waffles. The Banana Waffles arrived…

Calamari

Joet’s

Vacation to Goa with friends was always a far-fetched dream for me! After all the emotional drama and trauma 😉 we arrived at Goa! Naturally my fingers started typing “Places to eat in Goa”!   Before heading to North Goa, we visited a very quiet and serene Bogmalo beach. And Joet’s was a much recommended…

Infantaria

We had a minor mess up on our arrival day at Goa so we couldn’t really have that beach Goan type of breakfast. After all the fuss I did that day for having a lame breakfast, the next day had to be Toast! Infantaria was very close to where we stayed and a top recommendation…

Fat Fish

Goa’s scorching sun leaves you exhausted even before afternoon. But you cannot waste any time in Goa! And the best way to get back on your feet is to relax during lunch  Fat fish was our lunch option in Baga beach. We required more liquids that food  so we ordered the famous Goa’s palm feni, a…

Orange Wok

Quick lunch was the plan but that did not happen! We went to Orange Wok, in Nungambakkam, above “The Raymond Store”. A side staircase leads you up to the place, which has both indoor and outdoor seating. The place is made up with simple solid colours yet with quirky light lamps. From the menu, we…

The Flying Elephant

The Italian Food festival by Chef Nicola Costa at The Flying Elephant, Park Hyatt, got me sliding out of office as quietly as a cat. They took the liberty to have a set menu and saving us from the gruelling process of deciding what to eat. Well baked Garlic bread was served first with a…
