If you ask me for one place that never disappoints me in Chennai, I'll say Spoonbill without giving a thought. I've been to these place umpteen times and it has never let me down. Situated in one of Chennai's busiest road, ttk road, Alwarpet, Spoonbill serves an array of street foods from all over the world. For a typical South Indian like me, street foods are always fascinating. From bajji to sundal, vadai to avicha kadalai (steamed peanuts), Pori to pattani I simply love street foods. There's no surprise I love it even more when it takes an international form :)

A menu with good choice of street foods from Germany, France, Chinese, Mediterranean and it goes on. Like all other self service restaurants, you've to pay for your food first. Then comes the interesting part. They give you a pager along with your bill. And once your food is ready, the pager buzzes. How cool huh? You don't have to wait near the counter for ages, drooling on the food plates handed to somebody else, thinking "Mera number kab aayega" :D

I like the German currywurst (chicken), chicken tawa kebab, tortilla espanola (a spanish omelette) and the doner kebab salad. I keep repeating the above said items on a rotation :)

I've also tried their dimsums, empanadas and piadina. They are average in taste. As I've mentioned earlier, it is very hard to convince hubby to try a new place. It happened with this place also. But he loved the veg burritos here and got hooked to it. From then on, his order never changes other than this :)

Their sweet crepes, particularly the custard filled ones are absolutely divine. They also have waffles and pancakes which tastes great.
