While most other states use basmati rice, biryani made with the seeraga samba rice is a specialty of Tamil Nadu only.

I will prefer the regular star biryani.

RJ - Hi.
I would have really loved to drive down and meet you, but for a plan to drive to Rameshwaram that long week end, taking Monday off from work and school, and this time, hopefully should be able to make it. (have been planning for quite sometime now).

We catch up the next time you come over to Pondy on a weekend ?

And also there seems to be more Ambur Star Biryanis in Chennai than in Ambur.

Chennai actually has places that serve much better biryani than I've eaten at Star.

Topsee next to the Adyar bus depot has an excellent Chicken Special Biryani, and then there's good old Runs near Adyar Signal for example (OK I'm biased, I live in Adyar but these two have really good biryanis and have been around for years)

Then there is the Border Rahmath Kadai in T Nagar (and I think also somewhere along the ECR) - a much fancier branch of the original which is along the TN Kerala border near Courtallam in Tirunelveli District.

Enjoy your drive Captain. Now that the new road to Dhanuskodi has been inaugurated, you should be able to take your car all the way to the ghost town and get some good pics early morning

Guys, do you recon that we reschedule the meet to a week later. Looks like the long weekend is the dampener.

I guess a lot more Bhpians will be able to join in if it's scheduled for the 20th?

Not terribly easy. When I did the doodle poll, a vast majority of people voted for the 13th compared to the 20th or other weekends in August.

Hi hserus and others,

My vote is also for the 20th. If we move the drive to the 20th, I will most definitely join in.

Thanks,
Ajit

I guess we should give it a shot. There are more tentatives than confirmed. As we go closer to the long weekend I expect more to drop out. So we will probably be left with a couple of cars from either side.

I'm fine for 20th. Or a Saturday is also fine for me. On 13th I have weekend support so can't make it.
