Vada Curry Sandwich

Vada Curry Sandwich

Where else can u get a #bread #omelette #sandwich with Vada curry? Royal Sandwiches of course! The bread omelette sandwich, probably unique to South India fused with a gravy made of Vada. Fab flavors. #chennaifoody #eat #yummyinmytummy #yummy #foodtalkindia #fbai #foodgasm #foodporn #foodphotography #food #foodie #foodblogger #foodblog #chennai #foodwriter #oneplustwophotography #followme #streetfood #egg #breakfast via Instagram

Coast to Coast, Dining Room, Park Hyatt

Coast to Coast, Dining Room, Park Hyatt

If there is one restaurant in the city that lives by the 'quality of quantity' principle, it has to be The Dining Room at Park Hyatt. I've gone gaga over their breakfast many a times, but I was appalled that they too run a food festival via the buffet. When invited to try that out, I almost went there expecting the worst, but was super glad that they've stuck to their principles. If you do take a chance and sit out by their Lotus Pond with mosquitoes for company, the live seafood action will catch your eye. A big boat with sand lobsters, mud crabs, king fish (that looked angry), prawns, lady fish and the likes, all waiting for you to pick and get cooked. Titled Coast to Coast, this is a celebration of coastal food of India, so there is variety right from Bengal all the way to Gujarat, via the coasts. Though what live counter you get depends on which day you go, they are happy to make something from another state if you ask. On Monday night, the

Nasi and Mee

Nasi and Mee

Take the dim sum out of the steamer. Dunk it in your mouth. Realise it is super hot and struggle to eat it. Then enjoy the second dim sum when it cools a bit! Right? Maybe, but when you have a curried dim sum, then it is a whole new ball game. Nasi and Mee has been making waves in Chennai and I can see why. Promising Malaysian and Singaporean street food, the place itself is set up like a pub and the ambiance is inviting and laid back. With quirky stuff all over the walls and an almost Singapore hawker stall like feel albeit in a posh, up market set up, the place seems to have ticked all the boxes. We were invited for the evening and were welcomed with a trio of welcome drinks, but nothing screams Malaysia more than Milo. Having a cult status in Malaysia and in parts of Singapore, the humble Milo maybe a health drink (a failed one at that) in India, but it is revered there. The Milo here was as good as the ones you get in Malaysia, chocolaty, a little dilute (s

Chinatown Food Street, Singapore

Chinatown Food Street, Singapore

If white carrot cake is something, then black carrot cake should be the same thing in black, right? Wrong. OK, after some hectic shopping at the Pagoda street in Chinatown, Singapore, which you shouldn't miss on your trip to Singapore, I was looking for Telok Aiyer hawker centre. Operating 24/7, under a HUGE space, it was supposed to be the go-to place for hawker foods in Singapore, but with two hungry kids and after struggling to find it, we found ourselves at the Chinatown food street, barely a stone's throw away from Pagoda street. It is covered street, so the sun is not going to roast you and though it seems like some the chairs outside the restaurants belong to them, they don't. You could sit wherever you want on the road side chairs. There are two types of restaurant on this street, one along the two sides of the roads with a proper dine in space (with chairs and tables outside that don't belong to them) and a row of kitchens right in the middle of

Gujarati Rasoi, Jamavar, Leela Palace

Gujarati Rasoi, Jamavar, Leela Palace

Gujju meals are veg, Gujju meals have sugar in sambar, Gujju meals have sugar in everything, and many more myths were busted at the Gujarati Rasoi happening at Jamavar, Leela Palace. But before I start off about the food, the ambiance deserves more than a mention. Uber luxurious. With exquisite cutlery and grandiose decor, Jamavar is a luxury showcase of the Fine Dining Indian restaurant to its largely foreign diners. The fact that it was nearly packed on a week night definitely says a few things about it. In a place like this, a-la-carte is generally a bad option, unless you are really small eater or here to experience the luxury on a budget. A chef's meal is probably the way to go and I was glad that the food festival was also a set meal. Being hosted for dinner with a vegetarian has it's benefits! We got to try lots of the wonderful vegetarian stuff. If it's two of you, I'd definitely recommend ordering one veg set menu, and both veg and

Makansutra, Glutton's Bay

Street food with a view? The very thought can be a contradiction of sorts, but when you are in a country that has a national pastime, which happens to be eating, then it becomes more of where is it, rather than, is it for real. A short walk from the Helix bridge near Marina Bay sands, by the bay is this brilliant hawker food centre, called Glutton's Bay. With about thirty odd stalls, this may not be the biggest hawker centre, but when we are talking of one by the bay with a view, the number of stalls doesn't mean anything. You have stalls where you wait and stalls which give you a mini gadget that vibrates when your food is ready. You have stalls serving small crabs to ones that serve humongous ones. Carrot Cake, a staple in all Singapore hawker centres that neither has carrot nor is a cake, was our first go-to dish. And I was asked if I wanted a black carrot cake or the white one. Not knowing the difference, I asked for white, mentally noting to order the

Temple Food Festival, Hyatt Regency

Temple Food Festival, Hyatt Regency

Plonking festival and promotional dishes in the middle of an elaborate buffet is something I hate to write about. In general, it tends to dilute the promotional dishes which almost always tend to be overlooked! Which is why the Temple Food Festival at Hyatt Regency stands out. A chef is plonked there. Not just any chef, but the one who curated the menu and an entire section is dedicated to the festival and he goes about explaining dishes to the guests who show a lot of interest in those dishes. The fact that this section alone is priced separately could be why people spend a lot of time here. You could simply have the festive dishes for Rs. 1250+ Festivals come and go and for most five star hotel buffets, it is just about adding variety for their in-house guests. Chef Balaji, who has worked closely with one Mr. Rakesh, who hosts a TV show and goes up digging out little-known-to-the-world-but-very-popular-locally kind of dishes and is trying to preserve t
