Italiano

Weekday lunch at a locality I don’t visit much as always got me excited. Italiano worked best on two footings, cost wise as well as for cuisine preference. It is a neat place with self-service, their walls are covered with posters all dedicated to the love of food. Unfortunately, they did not have their Panini…

Dallay

When my strict student budget turned into a monthly salary with no baggage to explain my expenses, my zomato bookmarks did not have a price limitation on it! But guess what? Fancy places with no good food never survives! Why flashback story? I went to Dallay in Velachery recently, though the service was bad, food…

Copper Chimney

Never having been to this famous North Indian cuisine restaurant, dining here got me all excited. Being located inside Phoenix mall, the place is tucked on a quite side on the second floor next to chili’s. The place is quite spacious and the interiors & the decor are made up with eye soothing colours with…

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…

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…

Paprika – Courtyard by Marriot

“Super heroes” Themed brunch! Well it took only seconds for the theme to sink in 🙂 Being grown up have nothing to do with liking superheroes but my mother never ever will agree! Anyway, Paprika in Courtyard Marriot hosts themed brunches and this month it was the “Super Heroes” theme. Their desserts, their waiting staff,…

Mezze

Mezze is a fresh straw amongst Italian cafe and full meals restaurants. The middle eastern cuisine left us excited for something new especially when the menu did not make any sense to me  except for hummus and Falafel. The place is small with seating for twenty. White and blue combination of walls and chairs always have…

Cafe 23

Every six months I have an exam where I perform miserably. But I still look forward to it because after the end of the last exam, my school friends and I make it a point to meet no matter what (has worked out till date) And this time we chose Café 23, since it was…
