Kryptos by Willi

Kryptos by Willi

After its grand opening , which I thoroughly enjoyed, my second visit to Kryptos was a rather forgetful one, and so I did not even bother writing about it! I had made my thought clear to the manager and he was more than happy to listen to complaints without ever once being defensive - so Kudos to their managerial and service team .So  when friends suggested that we meet there again for a community lunch on a fine Saturday afternoon, I had no qualms and went ahead and found change in almost every aspect! The previous time I went, the starters had too much puff pastry and too little meat and when its priced at about Rs 500, you feel let down. So when this time, the Arnipitakia - puff pastry with stuffed lamb was brought, I was skeptical, but what a change - you could just not complain. The lamb inside was perfectly cooked and the puff pastry was just right! Kotopoulopitakia-Stuffed chicken and phyllo pastry rolls with apricot and feta cheese was equally brilliant. The cold mezze plat

Baan Thai

Baan Thai

On a lazy Sunday afternoon, the two of us (the wife, after a bit of shopping) felt like some Thai! With Benjarong being a bit far off, we decided to try Baan Thai, a pretty new kid on the Thai block! We parked our cars and walked into a pretty impressively set interiors, but almost empty restaurant! And when that happens on a Sunday afternoon, you tend to get a little worried! We settled in and the wife ordered her favorite soup - the Tom Yam and I asked for the Chicken wrapped in Pandora leaves! To be honest, both tasted good! The chicken was very succulent, juicy and well made, while the soup was very much Tom Yam. For the main course, we had Thai fried rice and a Chicken Potato gravy, the name of which I cannot recall, but I can tell you that both were good too! Being only the two of us, we were pretty stuffed with this, but still decided to order the water chestnut dessert, one of my personal favorites in the Thai dessert circle! The water chestnuts served with ice cream was

Aroma

Aroma

On a busy long queue day at Subway, my friend and I decided to hop to Aroma, bang opp Subway Nungambakkam and see what they offered! As soon as we entered, we were told that their Continental Chef was away and only Indian and Chinese were available - not a great welcome! But we decided to have something quickly and leave and so we settled down to a corner of a nice and elegant interior setting and saw the menu - the menu was not ready and so we had to read it off printed A4 sheet. The owner was around and suggested that we try 'a unique chicken' with a fancy name that I cannot recall, so we went with that and ordered two kothu parathas with it! Oh man, it was mind blowing! The chicken that they served us was awesome, super soft and very very tasty and the kothu parathas for Rs 50 was a deal both in quality, quantity and taste! We were not in the mood for desserts, but I plan to go back here to try some more stuff! Apparently there is a coffee shop Chew n Brew that is set

Amma Chettinad

Amma Chettinad

Wanting to have a quick lunch, four of us took our car and noticed this Amma Chettinad board a short distance from work and decided to try it out! The place is absolutely no frills, but plays ONLY MGR songs! Nothing much as far as interiors go and we settled ourselves into a corner table for four and asked for what was available, hoping to get some kothu parota! 'Only meals and biriyani anna' is the reply we got! 'I can get you some pepper chicken, but thats all' said the waiter! So we ordered just one biriyani and one pepper chicken and thought we will taste it before we order more, but what we ate blew our minds. Immediately an order for a couple more pepper chickens and biriyani were placed and what was intended to be a quick short lunch, had us stuffed to our throats!!! The waiter then said that they have 'Mutton chukka' and without a blink, we ordered that as well! The chukka was certainly no match for the pepper chicken, but was pretty good, thought it

Gatsby Village - Baker's Street

Gatsby Village - Baker's Street

After seeing a number of paper ads, on a lazy sunday morning, we headed out to Gatsby Village for some baked breakfast options! We were surprised to see only one table in the center, lots of expensive stuff to buy and a small table with food at the corner. The smell was heavenly, but our idea of having a nice breakfast was sloshed! Apparently the table we saw was for sale and that the food here is 'take away' only! Not wanting to be disappointed, we ordered ourselves a croissant, a chocolate twister and a quiche. The food (may be it was a fresh batch since we were there in the morning), was awesome! The chocolate croissant was crisp on the outside and soft inside and with the right amount of butter - fantasitc. The chocolate twister had generous amounts of chocolate and the puff pastry was baked perfectly and was mouth watering, while the quiche was just ok! Sad that you cannot eat inside, but the way the food is stored, I presume that only the mornings will have you happ

Soup n Salad Cafe

Soup n Salad Cafe

While spending a night at a friend's, we decided to have a pretty late night snack and landed here at about 1050 PM, but the staff were accommodating enough to let us in, even though they close at 11!!!! The interiors were nice and elegant, and the display has some mouth watering (atleast by sight) dishes! We settled down and ordered ourselves a cream of bell pepper soup, a salad called 'Famous Haiti' or something like that, a chaat and a croquette zondich. Oh my God, the last time I enjoyed veg food so much was quite a few years back at Eden! The croquette zondich (I think I got the spelling right), was croquettes stuffed in pita bread and loaded with stuffings and cheese and tasted simply superb!!! That 'famous' salad was again, just out of the world, it was a salad with beans and the likes, with broken potato chips and a good amount of dressing! The chaat was just alright, nothing special and the soup was pretty decent, I have never had 'cream of bell p
