Waf O 'Bel

Waf O 'Bel

If a restaurant shuts and you cry, then you really loved that place! But if you loved it, then so many more would have loved it too! Why will it shut then? Yeah, funny. No, you crying is not the funny part, but the restaurant closing! And the smile when it re-opens!?! HHHHUUURRRRAAAAHHHH. CCCHHEEEEEEEEEEESE! Yeah, same feeling when Wafobel disappeared and then reappears in a brand new, chic avatar! From a tiny 10 square feet outlet to a swanky new place, Wafobel has grown! It now comes with a larger menu, some savoury waffles and....wait. If you're expecting chicken on your waffles, stop your dreams right now. It is still pure vegetarian!!! We settled for one stuffed waffled platter to sample all of their savoury waffles. Really nothing to write home about! But the real waffles (yeah the sweet ones) were all yummy! Crisp on the outside, slightly soft on the inside and wonder how they do it without egg in the recipe! The two chocolate ones were great, while the Waff

The proportion of meat and rice and veggies was almost as perfect as it could get for it to be a perfectly balanced meal! I guess every cuisine, especially the Eastern world cuisines, have these one pot meals. While most of them are soup based, donburi is entirely dry! Since Japan already has the Ramen bowl filled with rice, noodles and loads of veggies, it is quite amazing that they have a dry version of it with rice! And its got a nickname, DON.  Three of us. Three non veg donburi on the menu! How convenient!?! A chicken, a beef and a seafood wala! The Chicken Katsu . Cabbage on a base of rice topped with three super large pieces of Chicken Katsu . The  katsu  is like supreme cuts of chicken, crumb fried! Quite hearty and we were all able to take a helping each. The next dish was the best and since one of us in the party didn't eat beef, the two of us were lucky since it was one person less to share with! ;-) Sliced beef on a base of rice and cabbage with a side s

Golden Dragon launches a new menu!

Golden Dragon launches a new menu!

Going for new menu launches have stopped exciting me these days. I guess, so much has been done and dusted that nothing exciting seems to be happening. After all how much can you do to a menu? Within a cuisine. I'm a lot more excited when it comes to festivals than new menus. Of course, there are complete menu change overs with new chefs and stuff like that, but otherwise, it has become mundane. Golden Dragon has been one of the flag bearers of 5 star, comfort Indo-Chinese. Now that is like a cuisine by itself. 5 star, comfort and Chinese in the same line? It has gone through so many stages over the years that I'm left wondering what else can they do with the menu! And if the staunch GD fans accept a new menu. Most people there don't even need a menu, they simply order from memory!  Dinner started off mundane! The new dishes may be new on the menu, but nothing exciting to the palate or the eyes. The dumplings and starters arrived and for the

You want to introduce a new cuisine to a city? What do you do? Open up a fancy place, blow on the interiors, huge marketing campaign and then shut shop after a few months if it fails!?! Wrong! The approach of the owners to introducing Ethiopian cuisine to Chennai has been marvellous. Small place. Experiment. See if the crowd likes it. Already having a few restaurants helps, especially if they are all in the same place. Along with Batlivala and Khanaboy and Meena Tai, the complex now welcomes Chennai palates to try out Ethiopian! And what better way than a small 10 seater place to introduce it. The interiors are symbolic with what I guess is a replica of Ethiopian interiors. The tables and the stools are set for a community eating which we found out later is the way of life there! Your group eats from one plate! Actually, it may not be so difficult to try it out because the flavours are so so similar to Indian. My only twist with Ethiopian was at a buffet in
