Famous Theory

Travelling to Shollinganallur, Chennai all the way from my place was like taking a small vacation for me! The purpose of this vacation was for food tasting at “Famous Theory”, part of Hotel Centre Point. The place was easy to locate as it was on the main road, since I went in the afternoon, there…

Dhaba by Claridges

When this place opened up in Chennai, I was wooed by their décor and ambiance but honestly their prices held me back and bookmarked this place probably for a special occasion in the future. On one such occasion, it was finally time to lunch here 😀 On doing the usual zomato research, I was hoping…

Pakwan

A very tolerant co-food reviewer never gave up on me!! time after time she kept asking for lunch/ dinner, but those were the days I was tied to my chair working the general saying is third time’s the charm but for us it was the fourth time; A food invite to Pakwan 🙂 We had…

Thambi Vilas

The new trend is to bring the old back! Adding to the list of restaurants who’s decor is to keep it traditional is Thambi Vilas in Habibullah Road, T. Nagar. Charming is the word that comes to my mind when I look at their seating area! From the Gramophone playing old songs, the cushion less…

The Brew Room

If you had seen two grown ups this Sunday morning at Brew room, but you felt their mental development could not have been over 10 years from their excitement about everything in Brew room, it was definitely my friend and myself 😀 It was a quick plan to have breakfast at Brew Room, a fancy…

Munveedu

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…

Seize the moment people!

On a recent vacation to the serene Andaman, despite the white sand beaches, the crystal clear water and coconut trees being a perfect place to relax, one thing which stressed me was how people vacationed! The first thing people did whenever they came across any beautiful place was not being astonished of how beautiful and…

Thai Food House

Trying the few Thai places in Chennai, my opinion has always been that  it is a “Non spicy” cuisine. My friend wanted to change this perspective of mine so we headed to Thai food house in Alwarpet, Chennai. I was in a hurry and did not pay much attention to their ambiance and decor. It…

Third Wave Coffee Roasters

Bangalore spoils me with choices!! I felt like a child who was in a store full of all the candies possible but I get to pick only one This was my feeling when I was choosing a place to have lunch in Koramangala, Bangalore. Finally, we zeroed down to “Third Wave Coffee Roasters”. My friend…

Cafe Central

Their name “Café Central” immediately takes me back to F.R.I.E.N.D.S and their “Central Perk”. We went here for a brief lunch as we went there with an already half full stomach! Their ambiance is quirky and bright, empty frames adorn the wall which I am not sure if they are meant to be empty or…

The Heat Mexican Cafe and Grill

Not everyday I get to meet my friend in Bangalore, India; but when we did meet, we have to talk a lot! literally a lot!! so much energy is needed that we cannot do it without food 😉 The “Heat” in New Bel Road was were in ended up. The restaurant is huge and spread…

Ente Keralam

For a change, breaking away from my normal eat out cuisine, I wanted to try Kerala Cuisine. Ente Keralam, known for their reputation for serving Kerala cuisine food was the obvious choice.       Going in from the usual Chennai sunny afternoon, their dim interiors was a blessing. We were seated in the first…
