Lesser known food joints in Chennai

There are a few local food-joints in our neighborhood which most of us swear by for the taste of their food and their specialties. We hang out at these places with close pals and don’t mind if it does not have fancy sofas or music playing in the background. The one place you can bank on when you return from work at late in the night. But sadly not everyone in Chennai knows about these places.

This column will talk about such food joints, their location and of course their specialties. We will also try to get some comments from their regulars and owners.

I have got some amazing food reviewers; ok not exactly that, but foodies who have agreed to share their valuable inputs on this topic

Arpita, is a dynamic young advocate and a foodie to the core, Hash a software professional who is more passionate about the taste of his food than the quality of his code [ok I see him raising his eyebrows] and Prasad who is just a food lover and can travel 20 kms simply to have something to eat in a not so famous food joint but known for its good food!

We will bring you as much as reviews and details about these lesser known food joints which are known in their locality for good food and cannot compete with the likes of The Residency, Meridians, the Hilton or the Park for the ambience but can give a run for the money on the taste.

Matta in Ashok Nagar and Mithai Mandir at Vadapalani will be the first ones in my next post.

ps – You can also mention about any food joint you know in your area. Do email me about them.
