Cream and fudge

Cream and fudge

I saw an ad in the newspaper about the new ice cream outlet in town and was pretty excited especially when I was told that it was some kind of an international chain. So that night a few of us went to KNK road only to find that everyone had seen the ad and the place was nothing short of a stampede. After placing orders for the ice creams and being told that they have run out of cones and that we had to adjust with cups, we ran to a table that just got free and waited.....and waited.....and waited, and when we were beginning to worry if they ran out of ice creams, our order was called out. After tasting the first two, I was taken aback, for the name could not be more apt, everything there was just cream and fudge and nothing more. We ordered five different ice creams/sundaes and all of them tasted the same, a vanilla base with added flavor. The chocolate fudge was pretty good, while the apple crumble was decent, but everything else tasted the same to me and beyond the first few

Parfait 3

Parfait 3

As I was driving via a small road in Kilpauk, I noticed a board that read 'All day continental breakfast' and needless to say, being a sucker for continental breakfast, I stopped by to have a look at the place and realized that it was Parfait 3, a joint I had spotted in Velachery, but did not have a chance to visit. So when Sunday arrived, I dragged the wife along for breakfast (and let's not discuss what time we had our breakfast) here. The ambiance is chilled out with a few tables on the outside and a few inside ( I did not like the interiors, it was a turn off), but the outside is very nice and has games that you can take and play, we settled with Chinese Checkers! Just two dishes were really breakfast, a banana pancake and french toast. The banana pancake was the closest I have had next to IHOP, in USA - that is the best compliment I can give a pancake, and it was priced at Rs 85 for two very nice sized pancakes, with a generous dose of (and feel free to

Zaica

Zaica

On a busy Thursday afternoon a foodie friend of mine and me headed out to Zaica, a Mughal restaurant as I had given my word to test it out for them. I was dead hungry and was really looking forward to some good food and my fellow foodie was already there and when I landed there,we dived straight into the buffet. Though the place looks tiny from the outside, I was surprised at the amount of space that was inside. The ambiance is quite good and the tables are well spread out with some tables being tucked away in singles, so you get a lot of privacy. Well done on that front. Starters are served on the table as is now the fashion ever since BBQ nation made it a rage. We had the chicken kebab, the sheek and a fish tikka for starters and were generally quite happy with the quality. The chicken was nice and tender and tasty, the fish was very well done and tasted equally great, and the sheek kebab was quite good too. After a couple of rounds of starters, we headed for the buffet

Dimsum festival at Marriott

Dimsum festival at Marriott

This time around, I got a facebook message from Marriott asking me to check out their dim sum festival and needless to say, I was more than excited. My history with Marriott started off pretty badly and stayed bad,before my previous visit to their Sunday brunch which I really enjoyed and wrote about. Chef Prathiba welcomed us and we were given an introduction to the world of dimsums. The restaurant was full to the brim and we could see dimsums being served all around us and this got the two of us really excited. She suggested that we go for the platter that will give us a glimpse of all the dimsums on the menu (they have 7) and we took the offer. So the platter arrived in typical bamboo cooking units with full steam inside. We were tempted to dive in right away without even taking pictures, but resisted the temptation. With the photo session over, we dove into what turned out to be utterly mouthwatering dishes. My favorite was the lamb dimsum which was unique to me as it was

The Kitchen - Rain Tree Anna Salai

The Kitchen - Rain Tree Anna Salai

To celebrate a special occasion, four of us headed to the Rain Tree on Anna Salai to check out this hotel. Its been around for a while and we thought it would be a good time to check it out! The guy (?manager?) just as you enter the hotel is a disaster! I asked him for dining options and he suggested that we try out 'Chinese Coffee Shop' which serves good Chinese food he said! Curious to see what a Chinese Coffee Shop is like, we entered the restaurant named 'The Kitchen' only to realize that this was a regular 24 hour coffee shop with a buffet and absolutely no Chinese in it. We decided to try the buffet nevertheless and allowed ourselves to be seated by the pleasant waiters! The buffet spread is not exactly huge by any stretch of imagination. You have a choice of two soups like most places and the soups were pretty average. The starter section was actually impressive - they have small portions of multiple starters in small glasses or tiny plates so you can try
