Sri Krishna Sweets & Continental Food

You guys must be thinking I must be completely crazy to go to Sri Krishna Sweets (on Radhakrishnan Salai, opp. StanChart) and eat Continental food. After all, people go there to eat their Mysore Pa. Being the foodie I’m, I gathered enough courage to order for the Continental Combo at Sri Krishna today for lunch. It was just ok, not bad, and for Rs. 35 does not hurt your wallet. The Combo had a Soup, Chilli Cheese Toast (2 pieces), a portion of Spicy Corn or Augratin and Veg. Pulav. Now, when on earth did Veg. Pulav became Continental. I don’t know. The soup was hot and spicy. Passable. The Chilli Cheese Toast was ok, hardly any Chillies though. The Spicy Corn was really spicy and I didn’t touch the Pulav. Actually these guys also offer other Combos, like the regular South Indian, Chat and Mini Tiffin which seemed to look good. I think the owners must stick to their forte of Mysore Pa and traditional Indian sweets and snacks and not get over ambitious with Chinese, Continental etc.

    The combos are pathetic. I had a bad experience of eating in their restaurant in Ashok Nagar and the dosas were sour and vadais were salty :( Having a restaurant opposite Saravan Bhavan, they stand no chance(inspite of the “Saravana” pricing)…they are exactly “opposite” to them!

    It is the habit if the Sri Krishna Swets to announce with fun and fare of their new menu and new facilities and simply forget about it. Sometimes back thay have announced the selling of CHITHRNNAM(Prepared rices) and PAYASAM. These things are never availabe in announced time in their Radhakrishnan Salai Branch. Like this providing of SEVAI( Idiyappam)-in the evening hours – But this never availabe in their same branch, If we commit with anybody on their annopuncement would be only foolished and to feel guilty with our guest. The bearers at the said branch also always a bit indifferent and they never care the customers.

    My office being on Radhakrishnan Salai, I sometimes go to Krishna sweets. Their chat combo is somewhat ok… but u will need to be a tough-teethed guy (may be u should have pulled a couple of cars with ur teeth) to bite their kati roll, which they give in their meal combo.

    Nevertheless, SKS is damn costly, I would prefer going to Adyar Ananda Bhavan next to the Tank in Mylapore, making no compromise on quality or taste.

    I have never eaten at Shri Krishna Sweets, but without them and Mr Nalli (whose silks I have regularly bought) there would not be nearly so many free concerts to attend here.

    I take my hat off to them for that!
