What i had here:
As i wanted to have a different experience, i sat at the Restaurant section. The ceiling of the place glows with round lights and the decor is made purely white which is quite mesmerising to the eyes with a little cafe touch to it with white fancy chairs. I was here with a friend to grab some bite post work and we thereon started with our orders:-
• Sambar Vada – Believe it or not, this place serves one of the best sambar in the city of joy. It has that tinge of sweetness which really soothes the palate well. The vada was dipped into sambar and served along with white chutney on the side. It was lipsmackingly good to taste.
• Masala Uttapam – I have had usual uttapam and onion uttapam but never masala uttapam. The uttapam was prepared by stuffing the masala aloo with little vegetables on top and frying it up. It also was served along with Sambar and Chutney. Was great to taste but quite stuffy after the sambar vada. If you are looking for heavy food, this is the right one to order for 100 bucks inclusive taxes.
• Gulab Jamun – We ordered for two Gulaab Jamuns which costed us 30 bucks all inclusive. It was served super hot and we literally did had to blow air while keeping it in the mouth. Hehe.
• A pure vegetarian affair
• Prices are kept reasonably low
• Ambiance is nice
• Service is quite fast
Meal for two: 100-350 approximate
This place offer lipsmacking tasty food to office goers, students as well as passers by. If you are in this area and want to satiate your taste buds by having light food, this is the right place for you.
