Jacob's Kitchen

Jacob's Kitchen

The guy who comes on Sun TV and does some crazy stuff there, the same guy who created a Guinness World Record for BBQ cooking now has his own restaurant on (where else) KNK road. And we were invited to check out his fare and boy, what a wonderful dinner it was. Chef Jacob has a passion for South Indian dishes and specialty dishes from villages and the likes. So the name of the dishes are very inspiring and some of them stunned a few of us. The nenjellumbu rasam, reminded me of the some of the weddings of my uncles when I was probably 10 years old. Typical meatless soup, but ones with full of flavor. We had the mutton sukka, which I thought was not upto the mark, but the nei koli varuval (ghee chicken roast i guess) and the koli milagu (pepper chicken) were outstanding. The Meen karandi was more like a karandi omelette since it had very little fish in it, but the karandi was good. Should try the chicken next time to see if there is more meat in it. My favorite dishes of the night were t

Fat Chef, Whitefield, Bangalore

Fat Chef, Whitefield, Bangalore

No trip to Bangalore is complete without trying out a new place to stuff myself and this visit turned out so much better. After scouting for a new place, my bangalore foodie friend narrowed it down to Fat Chef because it was close to where we stayed and reviews were pretty good. So off and the place took us by surprise. It was a super elegant place, nice and eclectic interiors with a small garden on one end with tables there and a winery inside restaurant. Full marks to the ambiance. We were looking at starter options when we saw a main course go to the next table, it was humongous. So we skipped the starters and ordered a grilled fish special of the day and a cheese and prawns stuffed chicken. And both the dishes turned out to be super amazing. The fish was a nice big fillet, perfectly spiced and well done, served with the right condiments. The chicken was a rare dish, it was a breast of chicken sliced open, stuffed with prawns and cheese and grilled and served with condiments. We wer

New Town Cafe, ECR

New Town Cafe, ECR

Last weekend my friends and me were itching to try out a new place and since one friend has a new diesel car and has found a new love for driving and filling up fuel for almost half the price, drove us down to ECR to try out this new cafe. The ambiance was amazing, very well done. They have a nice outdoor seating area with a large screen showing the Euro cup and a cosy indoor seating with tables that have bells to call the waiter, to ask for the bill etc, neat concept. We asked for a chicken satay, a chicken murkthabak, a bangers & mash and costa chicken and some drinks, of which the iced tea was very average, but the berry crush was amazing. The satay was nice, thicker than other places so there was a lot of meat and very tasty. The peanut sauce that came with it was not the best in the world, but the satay made up for it. The costa chicken served was equally tasty and was served with mashed potatoes, while the bangers was three huge pieces of sausage, also very tasty. The chicken

Mangoes

Mangoes

I love fruits, most of us do. And needless to say, the mango is the king of fruits, at least for me. Is there anyone who does not like mangoes? It's a great fruit, really a gift from God, and mango juice (not the healthiest way to have this great fruit, but hey, once in a while), can cure summer heat depression. Fruits are a major part of most of the wellness treatments and whenever available, mango plays a role, even in diabetics. But, let's stay away from the medicine and stick to the food part here. Over the years I have been eating a fair share of the produces of mangoes and my favorite has always been the bangnapalli. While the folks from other parts always brag about Alphonso, for me Bangnapalli was the clear winner. But yesterday, when I was in Bangalore, my uncle gave me a mango which he called Ratnagiri. He said he was able to catch the best of the lot from Bombay and was able to get some before they were exported off. It looked like a small Bangnapalli. One bite and I

Mango Madness, Marriott

Mango Madness, Marriott

It's the mango season and Marriott has introduced the mango madness, an aptly titled festival to celebrate everything that mango is all about. At muffin tree, the specialty cake shop you get tons of variety of everything mango, from cakes to shakes to what not. I had a chance to check out some of what they offer and I found that even the tiramisu has been mangofied, into a mangomisu, where you have mangoes replacing the coffee flavor of the tiramisu, but retaining the mascarpone cheese. And since summer is here, they have some nice shakes as well, and if you are fond of man vs food, then the Big Daddy is yours to try and finish. It is humongous. My friend and me could not finish it, but that is because we had two cakes and a mango smoothie with lots of curd in it. I think you can and at Rs. 450, it is really dessert for three! - And hey people, if you enjoyed reading this, please share it.

Kebab Street

Kebab Street

Last Sunday, my parents had to go out in the morning and decided to buy lunch for the folks at home from Kebab Street. It turned out to be just perfect, that they went back and had food there for dinner too, and bought some for the lazy ones at home. And on Monday, a bunch of us from CFG went there for dinner and so, I have had three meals in two days from Kebab Street. It's just the place for simple nice kebabs and not too fancy of anything. The ambiance is that of a small eat out, you place your order at the counter and they deliver it to the table. Since I had so much on Sunday, lots of the food were repetitive for me on Monday, but not the schwarma. Kebab street had just the right ratio of meat and veggies in their schawarma, what kills the almost perfect dish is that it is stuffed in roti instead of pita bread, but if you do not care, this is good schawarma. We had some great fish tikka at home and very nice albeit thin sheekh kebabs that were both nic

Spoonbill

Spoonbill

As soon as I heard that street food from Germany and France and the likes are coming to Chennai, I was excited. Having been to those countries and eating some great street food, I was really looking forward to the opening of Spoonbill and finally last Saturday, four of us landed there to check it out. Nice live kitchens and a partial self service concept, it was a nice and brightly decorated space. The only thing that resembles street food with the ambiance is the live kitchen. So we placed order for a portion of chicken wurst with curry sauce, a burrito, a tuna and mayo crepe and after a friend arrived, more of the same. The sausages (as of now only chicken and lamb are available) and they tasted brilliant. Being served with a nice German bread, it is a nice meal at any part of the day. The owner was around and we learnt that they make their own sausages and they do not use binders, so it is 100% meat and the curry sauce is the one to go with, not mayo or mustard. The French part of t
