Haji Ali

Haji Ali

Suddenly felt like having some ice cream and dessert on a boring Thursday afternoon and we were having a couple of friends joining us, so the two of us took our car and drove towards Egmore from T Nagar. Just as we were crossing a signal on GN Chetty Road, we spotted Haji Ali and decided to try them out. Our friends joined us there and we settled ourselves into this nice eclectic place, small but very elegant. We ordered a some Lychee with Ice cream, Mango with cream (not ice cream), a chocolate falooda and a Special Falooda. The lychee was superb - and lots of it with a super nice dose of ice cream, my mango cream was beautiful, tasty and I guess healthy too! The two faloodas were pretty decent in taste and quite filling! Service was quick, the interiors were chic and the prices were hovering around the Rs 100 mark. Apparently they also serve up quick eats like pizza and sandwich and they also have wifi! So its a place you can spend some time at. Would love to go back and try

On a nice Monday morning, as I checked mail, I was rather surprised to find one from a manager at THE RESIDENCY, inviting me to check out their Chinese Restaurant. Being the first time that I was invited by a hotel (most invites come from stand alone restaurant owners), I was naturally excited, and soon learnt that the article in the Times of India about the blog initiated this invite! The last time I went there was in Nov 2009 and at that time the meal was actually enjoyable - as I noted in my blog entry then! So when I went for lunch with a friend, I found nothing new as far as the interiors were concerned. Everything remained the same. The chef greeted us and started talking (rather pompously) about his exploits in Hong Kong and the likes and when I asked him to suggest something from the menu he gave me the same answer that restaurants that do not have anything special gives you - "Everything is special in our menu". So we settled with our usual Indo Chinese favorit

Ashvita Bistro

Ashvita Bistro

The old Ashvita Cafe attached to its art gallery, is a place I have spent quite sometime with the guitar and a bunch of friends, and we even had a couple of Food Guide meetings there with the owner Ashwin joining us and talking to us about art and how the cafe came to be. I have not seen him since, but when I saw a newspaper ad that there was a new Ashvita in town, I was rather surprised to see that they are serious about the food business and not just art. It took some time to find the place, but at first glance, it is not surprising that it comes from an art background. The exterior and interior were exquisite to say the least. The outdoor seating area was nice and elegant, while the interiors were chic and modern. I loved the feel of the place and wished we had such places for the same guitar with friends, a good five years back. We were only two of us that day, so we settled for a drink, a sandwich and pasta. The oreo shake was kickass - end of story. The chicken sandwich was
