Karuvapillai prawns. A kick ass Kongu Nadu flavoured prawns with overpowering curry leaf flavour. A dish where the prawns enhance the marinade and not the other way round. #chennaifoody #eat #foodtalkindia #foodphotography #food #foodporn #foodie #foods #prawn #shrimp #curry #leaf #southindian #indian #shotononeplus #kongu #foodwriter #foodpassion #followme #instagram #gloobyfood via Instagram

The best Malabar festival in town. Not pretentious and definitely not trying to be either a pretty or a healthy version, but packing flavors. This Nei Pathri was soaked in ghee and served with beef.

When the chef makes the difference

When the chef makes the difference

Life is full of good and bad. Otherwise, it won't be life, would it? Especially when you try and explore, you have to be ready to weather bad experiences to get that one good one which will make the effort worth it. Somehow when it comes to food festivals, I don't agree with that statement. Ya, there will be well done food festivals and poorly done food festivals, but when it comes to reputed hotels, I am not the explorer. I believe the chefs do all that sifting to give the diner a good eating experience. So I was totally disappointment when I ended up visiting multiple Malabar food festivals in the city. The first one was a pretentious interpretation of Malabar flavours and executed to suit the eyes of the business traveler. So much so that I almost decided to give up on the Malabar food scene. Thankfully, after explaining my predicament, Park Hyatt's PR agency said I should give it a shot and leave if I don't like it. I stayed back late. Much l

Chewing on Kongu Nadu. In Anna Nagar

Chewing on Kongu Nadu. In Anna Nagar

With a melange of spices, South Indian cuisines have more similarities than differences, but that statement can be overturned simply by the variety of food we have with such little difference. Kongu Nadu, a region consisting of parts of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka, itself has a variety of cuisines, but again with stark similarities. It maybe safe to say that Chettinad cuisine apart, the rest of Kongu is similar. Then Rakesh Raghunathan, a wonderful food writer and a food historian himself who is going around preserving temple cuisines and documenting them, completely refutes me. He says, no. Kongu is a region in itself and the small part of Chettinad coming there has had no influence on its food. So, I guess then Kongu food is just that. But when I was gobbling down chunks of lamb and prawns, Amit and I had no care in the world. History and Geography were the last thing on our minds. Amit, another wonderful food writer was leaving Chennai and we were thinki

There is no need to pay 560 EUR for a meal in Venice. Stick with the locals and you will find some fabulous food. The #cicchetti in Venice can keep your tongue, tummy and wallet happy. The tapas equivalent, a plate of 8-10 will set you back by about 10 EUR #chennaifoody #eat #food #foodtalkindia #fbai #foodporn #venice #italy #italians #foodphotography #travelphotography #traveleats #travel #europe #fish #seafood #tapas #baguette #bread #followme via Instagram

Michelin Trek from Milan

Michelin Trek from Milan

Looking up for a starred restaurant in Milan, I came across Giancarlo Morelli. His restaurants in Milan are visual treats for the eye, but a friend of mine, Chef Mauro told me of another of his restaurants, a few miles from Milan. With his sons working there with Morelli, I decided to go to Pomiroeu, in a town called Seregno. In a house, with lush gardens outside and nice wine cellar in the basement, Pomireu was closed for a special event and thankfully Giancarlo Morelli was gracious enough to accept me for the night thanks to Chef Mauro. Being my first sit down Michelin dinner, I wanted to have the Chef's tasting course. I went with their best, a 5 course dinner. My previous Michelin dinners were in Hong Kong where the restaurants weren't built for stars but were given stars purely for their quality. So for all practical purposes, this was my first star dinner. The visual treat of the first course, was a feast to the eyes, but I noticed t

Breakfast, Malaysia Style

Breakfast, Malaysia Style

OK, that is not entirely true. Partially. Oh well. Breakfast in Chennai, beyond the idly and dosa will lead you to breakfast buffets in nice hotels or coffee shops with some bread, sausages and tomatoes. And some potatoes thrown in. And an egg, your style. Can you think of anything else? Nope? I guessed as much. If you did think of something different, please please let me in on that secret. Now, there is something else. Nasi & Mee, that set up shop bang opposite a popular (and fun) Asian restaurant and ended up doing extremely well has taken the big plunge. To start the cash counters ringing from 830 am. While I don't know how that is going to do during the week, I'm starting to think that their regulars will have another meal to dine at Nasi and Mee. Thankfully, there is neither Nasi or Mee on their breakfast menu. A beautifully Malaysian inspired breakfast. Milo? Yes. Coffee with condensed milk? Yes. Kaya? Oh. Yes. Baby. For the uninitiated, Kaya is

If you had only 1 hour in Rome..........

If you had only 1 hour in Rome..........

I am going to commit blasphemy in this post. But it's something that I've got to live with. I've been scared for life. Scared so bad that it is going to take me a while to even attempt to try hot chocolate anywhere. If you had 1 hour to spend in Italy, where will it be? Milan? Yes, it is a nice place, a beautiful Duomo with nice shopping all around. Rome? Yes, nice place too. Opera, Colosseum, Forum and loads of history. Florence? Why not? Beautiful countryside, great street side shopping. Venice? Needs no introduction. If I was to give a recommendation, it will probably be Rome. And where in Rome? Colosseum. Yes, nice place. Historical. Opera, yes, artistry. Yada yada yada. Lots of places. But if you had just one hour in Italy AND if that hour is in Rome, it needs to be spent at, yes, blasphemy, but you need to spend it at SAID. SAID? Yes, its a small restaurant in Rome. Quiet. Not fancy. No Michellin stars. I've not been to Massimo's Os
