Chin Chin

Chin Chin

This is a very old restaurant at THE RESIDENCY hotel in T Nagar. A pretty neat place with a dedicated fan following till a few years when the quality dwindled and then the whole hotel was renovated! 4 of us decided on a rendezvous with Chin Chin and what a surprise it turned out to be! The place looks smaller than the old restaurant, but elegantly decorated, though they could have done much better, considering the whole hotel underwent renovation. The tables were too close to each other and we were lucky to be at the top end, otherwise except for the family tables, privacy is a compromise! We are talking about good food and not 'authentic' Chinese, so please do not expect the review to be based on authenticity, but just good Indo-Chinese fare! We started of 1/2 portion each of Hot n Sour soup and Sweet corn chicken soup and both were fabulous! The starters included a portion each of dragon chicken, phuket fish and crispy fried lamb. The chicken was great, cooked to perfecti

Dosa Calling

Dosa Calling

Dosa Calling, a south Indian vegetarian outlet, has had be wanting to get there for a long time, and when the wife and me were both hungry and it was right across the road on which we were driving, we obviously could not resist it! Wife is not a great eater, which means that between the two of us, we ordered only 3 dosas and 1 vada, of which I ate two dosas and the vada, so the review is limited to these foods! The oriental dosa which I ordered was nothing to boast about, but a decent dish by any standards-tasty, filling and hint of home food. The regular masala dosa that the wife ordered, but just that- a regular masala dosa, again, tasty, filling and a hint of home food! But one dish where you do not want the hint of home food is in a paper roast, you really want it crisp and crunchy, but DC (as this joint promotes itself) went a tad further and made it like a home dosa, soft, soggy with no hint of anything near crisp paper, and I made sure I wrote it down on their feed back form

Thatukada

Thatukada

The Chennai market for Kerala cuisine is heating up with the entry of Thatukada, from the same group that already owns Ente keralam! The segment is entirely different with Thatukada serving entirely what seems to be Keralite Street food! Having heard wonderful news about the place, 4 of us hunted it down in the Planet Yumm at the Spencers and found place in the restaurant's dedicated seating area. No ambiance to talk about, this is street kind of food with a 3 star price and found (at least to date) only in food courts! We ordered Parota with chicken gravy, egg masala and koli porichadhu, 2 idiyappams and some extra parota. The dishes are all served with either 2 parotas or 2 idiyappams! The chicken gravy was heavenly and the chicken porichadhu was drenched in coconut oil giving it fantastic fragrance and taste! The egg masala was very average and the idiyappams were equally average! But the wonderful and soft Malabar parotas more than make up for it! We ordered two more set
