Panipuri in chennai

pp1

For the all the people who are in Chennai from the northern, western part of India , their craving for Panipuri will always be  un-satisfied.

So here is the review for one of the best pani-puri or gol-gappa in Chennai,which I have tasted up till now.

Om madhuri chat in Thiruvanmiyur,  sea ward road, near Singapore super market.

Pani puri here will have flavour of North India.
Puri will always be crispy .
Pani is one of the best I had in Chennai up till now. Pani will have pudina, bundi , chilli with the Aloo stuffing in puri.

Along with Pani-puri They also serve regular Chat like Bhel puri, Dahi puri, Dahi bhalla samosa chole and it was all satisfying.

Ambiance – It’s small shop so No ambiance score
Service  – Depends on the People waiting Generally it’s Quick by a smiling Guy who serve.
Food     – 4.5/5

Note: This is not a paid review. It’s based on my experience of going there.

Masala Kart Street food festival-2013

Imagine a place where you can get food From different states of India like Gujarat, Maharashtra,Andhra,Tamil Nadu ,parathe from paratha gali and Tunde k kebab from Lucknow. yes everything at one place , that too in Chennai .

It’s masala kart Street Food Festival-2013
Sff1
we were going there for the second consecutive year , Last year it was in Besant nagar which wasn’t that great as it was in a very small area (I think last year they were not expecting so many people) this time as they were claiming it to be the largest Street food fest in India, They took it to bigger Place Island Garden near Marina beach.

When we reach there I was happy that they had Good parking arrangements that was a relief. Then the real tough task was of Buying coupon. A huge Queue,Though there were 6 counters but that was not enough for the crowd which they were able to pull this year.
Entry fees were minimal, 50 rupees entry coupon and you have to take 50 rupees food coupon , which is okay.

Once you enter the place it was heaven for a real foodie.Aroma of a food and a happy faces was all around.
I was totally confused from where to start , what to eat first . This year it was better planned than last year because they had  number of stalls which were selling food coupons inside which was not the case last year.

There were 6 different domes. out of which 2 were Non-vegetarian while 4 were Vegetarian.

List of items they were serving were endless , more than 100 cuisines .Prices were at the higher side but that is expected so no complains. A high level of hygiene was ensured.

Few of the food items which I tried was

Pav vada       –  It Was good but very small .
Misal Pav      –  It wasn’t exactly what I was expecting So total disappointment.Even the worst misal pav in Mumbai will be better  than   what was served.

Dabeli
Dabeli         –  It was good , Spicy very spicy. I never had so spicy in Gujarat they would have made it better.
Ragada pattice –  Total disappointment , they call it Ragada but It was Chole.

punukulu       –  Flashback of my Hyderabad days,It would have been better if it was hot.

sff7
putharekulu    –  A sweet dish from Andhra tasted for the first time and I must say now I am craving for it.

sff9
MLA Pesarattu  –  I must say it was the best item of the day.

Malpua        –  It was as expected served hot.

sff5ig
Ice Gola       – This stall has the longest  queue , It clearly shows that in Chennai we don’t find Golawala easily.

Additionally there were Dhokla, Chat items and many more to add into this list.

Looking forward to many such food festival in Chennai .
Definitely I will be the first person to be there next year.

Fusion- Elliot’s Beach ,Besant Nagar

Fusion – A place for Chinese and continental.

In search of a place which can serve us Chinese food , we landed at the place Called Fusion at Besant nagar.

It’s a small place with the varieties of sitting arrangement sofa’s to chairs. This is not the place if you are looking for some silent, private ,romantic dinner or a lunch. They have a big screen where music channel will be playing non-stop Bollywood song. So you can enjoy , Definitely a fun if you like loud places.

Chinese and continental menu was decent they have good variety of choices to make. Also they have some combo offer to serve which will be really good on your pocket if it is month ending .Also they have a list of flavoured soda to offer which i will suggest is must. Try it without fail.

We were pre determined what to order but still we change our plans after having look at the menu . It is good to see that varieties they are offering . We ordered Lung fung soup , Chilly Baby corn and  vegetable crispy noodles .

Soup was good as I was trying it for the first time. Chilly baby corn they cooked the way I like to eat and disappointment was Vegetable crispy Noodles it was not what we expected but then this version of noodles was new to Try and it was okay.

At the end, we ordered soda from the list they are offering  Mint pudina soda and blue berry soda both the flavours were refreshing.

Ambiance – 3/5
Service  – 4/5
Food     – 3.5/5
Price    – 250 to 300 rupees for two

Recommendation :-  Try maximum flavours of their soda it is must. you will not get everywhere in Chennai. You can go there only for
their flavour soda when you are at Beach.
