Meenambiga Catering - Chennai Music Season - Sabha Canteen Round up - 2015

"Sindhu bhairavi raagaththa Sivaranjani raagathoda kalandhu, Ataana raagatha Aarakonathula pudichu, thodaila aadhi thaaLatha potta kedaikkara ragam Kalyani-ya, Kaambhodhi-ya? Karakarapriya-va, shanmugapriya-va? illa Sripriya va?"

This is the only time when I spoke about a lot of ragams :P As a tradition, like every other tambrahm girl even I was taught carnatic music at the young age. Fortunately, my music teacher got married and left the town and hence saved the public from a greater agony :P So me visiting the sabha during the December music season is to taste the food in the canteen.

Started off this season's Sabha Hopping from Meenambiga Catering at Mylapore Fine Arts Club, Mylapore. A very very simple but perfect meals. This was the menu :

Akkaraadisil (rice & lentil sweet)
Tomato thayir pachadi
Vazhakkai podi curry (Raw banana stir fry)
Vendaikkai puli mandi (Ladies finger in tamarind gravy)
Puliyodharai
Mullangi vengaya sambhar (Radish & Onion Sambhar)
Mysore Rasam
Manathakkali vatha kuzhambu
Curd, appalam and pickle.












The puli mandi was to die for. So yummy we had multiple servings of it. Everything served was awesome. No flaws and tasted perfect. Only negative thing was that the pickle was store bought. Would've been better if a simple ginger pickle or kalyana mangai was served. Other than the meals we had Kasi alwa too. Though it was excellent, I felt the quantity to be too less for 30 bucks. Meals is priced at 150 bucks and Kasi halwa at 30.

Had a quick chat with the person who was serving me. He said weekend menu will be special with 2-3 extra dishes. They also have evening snacks and dinner.
