Back at Amala Mess, one of Anna Nagar's best kept secrets. A Karaikudi family has been serving no-frills Chettinadu food for close to two decades. The fare is not doused in oil nor lit up with spice, and your stomach certainly rest easy after the meal. I love their light Surra Puttu (sort of Shark meat bhurji) and toothsomse Chicken roast. #pursuitofyummyness
Anna Nagar West, Chennai - 40: The very first address that acquainted me with the city I’ve called home since 2013.
The decked up Rajwadi Thali at Shree Rajasthani Dhaba. We've included Daal Baati as this was shot for piece in the Hindu, the Daal Baati comes separately though and only on the weekends. Set up Ashok Vyas when he moved from Jodhpur a decade and a half ago, SRD is an unpretentious little eatery in a sleepy Anna Nagar building. I grew up in Sri Gaganganar, near Bikaner and can vouch for the authenticity of the food. As Girish Vyas (Ashok's son) told me - his father's passion shows up on the plate! #pursuitofyummyness #rajasthan #rajasthanifood #annanagar #Chennai #thali
