Only picture that I took, this was after we said goodbye to Chennai tbhpians & drove to Dakshin Thirupathi. I've masked the number plates, wasn't really sure about it.

This is marks the second KA-TN meet, the first at Yelagiri on 03 Nov., 2012

Clearly, when WE(‘re in for the fun) prevails over I/MY, does a drive blossom.
As always, the drive and camaraderie took the cake.

We caught up with the Chennai folks at Vaniyambadi, per plan

Zebo’s off the cuff comment for a breakfast drive had the itinerary tweaked to include that.

Assembled for departure

The “quickie” brigade led by the indefatigable kaBALAN. sprinted in inimitable style up to the breakfast venue.

Satiated

The tweak also took us through a scenic drive via a lesser known route between Mulbagal and Ambur.

Sunny promptly went down on his knees and got the offending stone chip stuck in the recesses of the brake disc removed.

For Team Bangalore, courtesy MrBean, the drive had a rock(ing) ending with a picturesque “bye” on the banks of the Ponnaiyar river.

The End
A vote of thanks to that man. I had never imagined such a scenic place to be within easy reach of Bangalore. Normally I drive all the way to the deep south of TN for such beautiful scenery and here it is.

As for the biryani at Star Biryani - there was fun when one set of BHPians turned up at the one at the Vaniyambadi toll (which was the destination we'd marked) and another set first landed at the more famous Ambur branch of the same chain, some 20 minutes down the line, and then had to come back to Vaniyambadi.

Took about an hour before all this was sorted out and everybody turned up.

The biryani was excellent - if rather spicy for one or two people, and possibly surprising for people who think of the Hyderabadi and Calcutta versions that are quite different from this one. The dry chicken / mutton side dishes that were ordered were extremely spicy and tender.

AD asked for Jeera Rice and Dal Fry, somewhat to the shock of the waiter. He didn't have any dal fry but got AD a Gobhi Masala that was quite good, and the Jeera Rice had fried onions and garlic, as well as spring onion leaves, added for some extra taste so that finally turned out OK.

Here are a few more pictures
As Karthik had said Japanese, Italian, American and German cars from Chennai.
It does appear that a dog is also waiting for its quota of briyani with its plate.

Groupies!
