Elementz, Bangalore

Elementz, Bangalore

So, work took me to Bangalore and needless to say I ate out at every opportunity. Though I hate to admit it, Bangalore has a lot more to offer foodies than Chennai and sigh........... Anish took me to Elementz and was raving about it all the way from the train station to the restaurant and my expectation was hitting the roof. We parked the car on a small street opp Elementz and walked to a super rustic ambiance that was like Mocha, but with less, well, drug den effect. If it gets cold though, the inside seating would be a much better option. I got the menu and was shocked to see such a huge offering of steak, both vegetarian and otherwise. Being a steak lover, I got myself a cowboy steak for the first time outside of the US, while he got himself a shepherd's pie. We also got chicken croquets for starters which turned out to be crisp and tasty. The steak was super succulent and super tasty, just brilliant and is easily the best steak I have had in a very long time. The shephe

The Madras Kafe

The Madras Kafe

After reading about this place in CFG, the two of us went here to grab a quick bite before getting to the Anoushka Shankar concert. We noticed a lady at the counter helping with the service and some people there calling her 'aunty'. Looks like they visit here pretty often from the company that is located opp this coffee shop. The menu is very interesting. Vadawich, parotizza and the likes are what greet you on the first page. Unfortunately, these are not new inventions, but just name gimmicks. We ordered a vadawich and chilly cheese sandwich. I was expecting the vadawich to be a vada sliced into two and filled with potato, but it was just a burger bun with a whole stuffed with potatoes. The stuffing tasted like the ones we make at home. I am guessing that the parotizza is pizza toppings on top a parotta, but I would like to try it the next time. If you remember the McDonald ad about their spicy chicken burger, they claim that it is ah ooh, ouch kind of hot. Well, McDonald shoul

Lunch at 10 D

Lunch at 10 D

Easily the best Lunch combos in town, 10 D has a wonderful offering for both teeny boppers and the business guys equally. I am not sure of any other place in chennai, where you will find college kids and business executives in one confined area, almost everyday during lunch hours. Priced at Rs. 200 for the non veg and Rs. 150 for the veg, and with a humongous menu to choose from, this place rocks even during lunch. And the food is good too. You get a soup or a soft drink or a glass of beer, a main course and an ice cream. Yesterday my colleague had a scheswan fried rice with chilly chicken for the main course, another friend had (despite me telling him not to), a lasagna and I had my favorite naan with chicken tikka. The main courses usually have rice or noodles or naan or rotis with a choice of gravy, or if you go for the continentals stuff, a grilled fish or lasagna or something like that. The continental stuff here is just not upto the mark, except maybe the grilled chicken, but th

Flame Grill

Flame Grill

This is one of the restaurant that came up during the sudden surge of Arabian and Mid Eastern cuisine and did quite well initially and then slowed down. Tis is also a very inconsistent restaurant, with some days being very nice and others being forgettable. But for a lunch when friends come over, this always was a nice place for us. Being close to work, a variety of grilled chicken and other non vegetarian on the menu (and half of which will not be available for lunch), we forgot about this place during the times of our friend's 'diet' days. With a month of vegetarianism for another friend, this completely slipped out of our minds. Yesterday, we decided to go there when people came over to visit our new wellness center and boy, did we have a gala time. We started off with the main course and yes, the waiter stared at us for a few moments, but he realized that we have been there quite a few times. So we had their man chatti biriyani, which is our favorite there. It is a nice

Taj Clubhouse

Taj Clubhouse

How often has a banquet food impressed you? At least for me, banquet is more of a get together, with very small emphasis on food, even in five star hotels. Banquets at birthday parties, medical conferences, get together etc, none of which have been worth writing about. But yesterday, the banquet at the Taj Clubhouse blew most of the guests. And then people realized that banquet food can and indeed should be good. The chilly garlic grilled fish was awesome. It was a Chinese Mediterranean fusion I think, but cannot be sure. It was too good for any of us to wonder why it was good and how it was made. The biriyani was certainly not the best in the world, but it was better than most banquets. There was a paneer makha something was a superb vegetarian dish. The dhal makhani was super too. The chocolate mud pie on the picture was superb to finish off the night and just when we thought we had enough, there came a moong dhal halwa from heaven. Like one person mentioned, it pays to have a differ

Bread and puffz

Bread and puffz

I am not sure about the spelling of this place, but when I read in Chennai food guide that this place serves some kaya, I had to visit it. If you are wondering what I am talking about, then, kaya is a jam, made of pandan leaves, egg, flour among other things and I love it. The first time I had this in Malaysia, I was hooked for life and anytime I hear of it being available here, I try and get my hands and mouth to it. So when we were driving down nungambakkam, I spotted it just opposite Sangeetha veg restaurant and after awkwardly parking my car, we got in to see what they offer. It is a kaya lovers paradise. They have kaya Swiss roll, kaya puffs, kaya stuffed bun and other stuff like egg pie, muffins, chicken rolls. Apparently most of it was sold out and we picked up one each of every kaya stuff that was available. The kaya bun was super tasty and I simply loved it. The kaya puffs was equally good, while the egg pie was nothing but egg puffs, decent stuff. The kaya Swiss roll was a di

Junsui Lounge, Burj al Arab, Dubai

Junsui Lounge, Burj al Arab, Dubai

When I travel I try and do as much research as possible to find the best places to eat. So when some of my friends and readers were asking me to post those too in chennai foodie, I thought why not and so here were are beginning the year with my eat out at the iconic and the one and only Burj al Arab, Dubai. I am pretty sure everyone has heard about this self proclaimed seven star hotel, but one look inside and you start to wonder if seven stars were enough. Everyone talks about the high tea at here at the lobby restaurant calle Sahn Eddar, but a little bit of probing will tell you that the Junsui, an Asian restaurant is probably their best. The burj itself calls Junsui, its "best kept secret" and so I got myself a reservation here. Remember, you have to have a reservation to enter the property. The best time to visit will be at around 5 pm. You will be able to we the beautiful palm islands from the 27 th floor of the hotel for which you
