Baskin Robbins

Baskin Robbins

Baskin Robbins was the first 'premium' ice cream I have ever had in my life, about 15 years or so back! It was so nice that every other ice cream tasted yuck and then suddenly BR started dwindling in quality and quantity and number of stores and everything and soon it faded off my mind! BR is back (or has been back for quite sometime now) and how! Among them, the stand out for me has to be the Bavarian Chocolate - Imagine chocolate ice cream, with nuts, some liquid chocolate inside and some extra nice chocolate and multiply this whole thing by itself - yes, thats how I felt when I deviated from my usual favorite - the Fig n Honey! The fig is just awesome and the flavor rich! My friend tried the bubble gum flavor and it brought back the whole bubble gum that you can swallow feeling! Their mango is very nice too and they all taste even better when had in their chocolate dipped waffle cone!!!! Slurp!! Ok, enough, go n get your share now!!! Food 10/10 Price 10/10 Service

Cream Center

Cream Center

Having occupied the physical space of Mumbai based restaurant which was a total failure, Cream Center on College road had a few good reviews initially, but being a pure veg restaurant, it did not particularly catch my attention! But I had a chance to go there last week as part of a large group and finally got a first hand sight (and taste) of the food there! 8 of us landed here on a Saturday afternoon and barged the waiters with orders. American corn balls, falafels, Big Nachos, onion rings and another round of the above. The corn balls were filled with cream cheese and corn and were pretty good, while the falafels were very very nice - served perfectly inside a pita bread pocket and was a mini meal by itself! The onion rings were very average, but the big nachos was nice - huge nachos served on a bed of sauce with all the things that normally go into nachos ,just that that the sauce base was not great! For main course, we had veg biriyani (yeah, bad idea), enchiladas, penne w

la Boulangerie

la Boulangerie

la Boulangerie, touted to be the best 'French' bakery in town had a wonderful ambiance at their first outlet in Anna Nagar! Now, I have no clue as to what happened to that one, but though no other outlet has that wonderful ambiance, food is pretty good! We went back to the outlet inside the Harrison's hotel lobby for a rendezvous of our dating days! The setting is pretty cute, though small and very elegant. We asked for a butter almond croissant, a cheese quiche, a white forest cake and chocolate mousse! The croissant is certainly not the best in the world, its not crisp on the outside and soft inside, but its not bad either. The quiche was pretty good and well baked, while the cake and the mousse were decent. We did not try out their garlic bread this time, it used to be brilliant earlier. The above cost us Rs 240, so most dishes are priced around Rs 50! LB is certainly not what it used to be sometime back, but its still decent for occasional indulgences! LB has a

Cafe Pascucci, Express Avenue

Cafe Pascucci, Express Avenue

Cafe Pascucci is the latest Italian fare to enter Chennai and have opened their floors at the Express Avenue Mall! The place is very inviting, with a large seating area with comfortable chairs and a few with sofas and in general looks very elegant. The menu is pretty limited as far as the food is concerned, but as we found out later, pretty good. We ordered a Italian combo priced at Rs 189, for Chicken Bruschetta, a chicken pasta and fruit salad with ice cream. The portions were stunning, with two large garlic breads (the bruschetta), with loads of chicken, a full sized pasta and pretty decent sized Fruit salad. We also had chicken ham pizza, lasagna and italian sandwich. The Italian sandwich was brilliant, with good amount of smoked chicken, the pizza was very tasty but had scanty quantities of the chicken ham, while the lasagna, though tasted good, was not baked fully! We only later found out that there was a pizza combo too, with garlic bread, pizza and rum n raisin roll for Rs

Flame Grill (Mouthful)

Flame Grill (Mouthful)

Its been quite a while since we visited Mouthful so on Saturday late evening, we headed there for some exotic stuff. We were just the two of us and decided to stick to just some specialties! For a Saturday evening, the place was pretty deserted and we were wondering if the place has lost its sheen. So, we ordered half Lebanon Grill Chicken, a Chicken Schwarma and one Raan (the lamb leg) cooked Moroccan style. The Lebanon grill chicken is served with kuboos, some hummus and veges, while the lamb was served with the same and the schwarma with just some veges. The Lebanon grill chicken was amazing, with the perfect flavor, but the kuboos and the hummus were pretty bad. The Lamb leg was not as tender as it used to be sometime back at Mouthful (or when it was Mouthful, its Flame Grill now)! The schwarma was pretty ordinary too! Service was ok, and the ambiance is pretty ordinary. The place has definitely lost its sheen over time, and though some dishes here are still excellent, I have a

Rendezvous

Rendezvous

Ok, while this is not exactly Chennai food guide, but, Rendezvous is about 150 km drive from Chennai to Pondy! Since this place has a client list that drives down for dinner, I though I must have this place on my blog too! And I am eating here after almost five years, but the quality of the food has stayed the same!!! Menu tries to accommodate everything and portrays a Multi Cuisine scenario, and that is where it gets all the bad reviews from! If you are looking for Chicken Tikka tasting food, then, they will serve you some Chicken tikka tasting food and will well NOT be worth your money or time! But move beyond that and have their house specialties, and you will be taken by surprise! Even lasagnas and steaks are not great here, just their house specialties, namely the ones written on a black board! I think Pondy is the only place in South India, where you get the Sea Bass fish in local restaurants! Everywhere else it is an exclusive dish only available at five star! And Rendezv

Kleo

Kleo

6 of us decided to have some short eats on a lazy Sunday evening and one of them suggested Kleo! After struggling to get a place to park, we settled comfortably in a nice corner and started looking at the display for an idea for our orders. The settings are comforting, seating is well laid out with comfortable chairs, large windows for a look at the beautiful Chennai traffic and the likes! The first round had orders of one coleslaw sandwich, a chicken tikka sub, veg burger, a butter croissant, cinnamon chocolate drink and iced tea. The coleslaw sandwich was amazing - it was two layered sandwich with lots of slaw and topped with, I think, cheese and the final product was brilliant. The iced tea, did not taste like tea to me, but however it was a BRILLIANT drink!! It was sweet, actually it did have a small hint of tea, frothy and whatever it was, it was just great! The veg burger, the tikka sandwich and the croissant were all just average, the croissant was definitely not worth it (I
