There is the small place (forgot the name, may be dhaba) run by punjabis on the same road as crossword in T.Nagar. The best punjabi food I have tasted till date. Must try.

There is (was?) a mobile joint (vandi kaddai) selling Nai Podi Dosais, Idly, Vada etc in front of Brilliant Tutrorials in TNagar. which used to be a great place to eat... and a boon for veggies. Would like to know if they are still around?

1 club biriyani at the track => where is this track?
2 hotel ceylon .....remember this mates cause it open till 1:30 and try the mutton ceylon parotta its simply heavenly makes you forgive all the sins of the ltte and bless sri lanka,ride down cakes and bakes(nungambakkam and its there just on the lane where you will find pizza hut => I HAVE to try this out

3 just 3 blocks away is another mallu joint open until 1:30 good parotta and chicken curry => Is it close to pizza hut ?

4 mrc biriyani is standard and makes for good conversation good or bad => where is MRC?
5 karaikuddi is highly over rated the best is velu millitary in nungambakkam,but only good at lunch time => I agree Velu military is great.

also the best place to puke is the breezy beach,thiruvanmayur

there is a good 'kai enthi bhavan' near pondy bazaar, in front of brilliant tutorials, it is a veg fast food and they give excellent food. you should taste their 'nei podi thosai'

there is another restaurant for north indian food, near nadigar sangam called 'aashriwad' good taste ...

went to have lunch at ponnusamy today and i had a big fight, reason is ' i ordered for chicken briyani but got mutton briyani, asked the waiter to change and he also obliged, but it looks like they have removed mutton pieces and put chicken in the same briyani, when i asked the manager he said that it happens at times , when they run out, they would do a interchange of briyani, finally we said no payment for the briyani and came out.

ps: sorry to all the Veg bhp-ians for this non-veg stuff
