It was because of my mother’s eagerness to dine at Munveedu got us here on a Sunday. They were almost full and had us waiting for less than five minutes to get a table. Their ambiance reminds me of all my native relatives residence! Very traditional with kolam designs painted on the walls, coloured windowpanes and their ceiling.
Their service was a tad slow, even to simply get their menu took them a while Anyway we ordered their Munveedu kozhi sukka, veg meals, non veg meals, Aiyra meen kuzhambu and Nattu kozhi biryani.
The food took a good ten fifteen minutes to be served. The veg meals had, sambar, rasam, kootu, poriyal, mor (buttermilk) and applam. The non vegetarian meals just had some extra, fish curry and chicken curry. The veg meals were for INR 149 and non veg meals were INR 199, this was real Value for Money. The mor and rasam were simply too good. Rest of the dishes were alright.
The nattu kozhi biryani was good, the rice not dry and broken, spices good but the chicken pieces were dry!
The aiyra meen kuzhambu (fish curry) was special because they do not use sea fish but use only tiny fresh water fish. And their menu card says they bring it from Madurai, so there were a lot of expectations from everyone at the table, but it did not live up to the hype done for this dish Even my mother, who is not a stubborn person to please when it comes to food was not happy with it.
The Kozhi sukka was my most favourite, wonderful spices, juicy pieces of meat and it simply made my day.
The total bill value was around INR 1,200. It is a very nominal place to dine out to savour some good south Indian food.
