Nasi & Mee

Eating out has reduced lot these days. After 2 weeks of sabbatical from food at restaurant, I decided to have a sumptuous meal. I was eyeing Nasi & Mee for a long time. I dragged my partner in crime along, even though she visited the place recently (being friends with me isn't easy eh !!). I was going through their menu in Zomato and already made my mind with what to order. Surprisingly, I stood by that (except for one more round of milo :P). Had Szechuan chilli dumpling and sambal prawns for starters. Both were brilliant. Dumplings were awesome with thin skin and generous stuffing. The szechuan chilli oil rendered the spicy note to the dumpling. Sambal prawns were true love for me. Spicy and juicy prawns is all you need. One bite of this hot prawns and a sip of ice blended milo to cool down ur taste buds, is hell of an experience. Chilli crab xiao long bao ordered by Shab was good too. It's basically dumpling filled with soup and crab meat. Crab was fresh and the soup was very flavourful.







A special mention to the dips. Veg sambal was top notch. Caramelised onions and chilli based XO sauce was awesome. I would've finished the jar, if Shab hadn't stopped me. The Vietnamese chilli sauce was way too hot and I couldn't handle a drop of it.

Ice blended milo. One of the two names in the menu that pulled me to Nasi and Mee (other one was laksa). Loved it to the core. Thick and icy, brain freeze drink was absolutely chocolate-y. I couldn't get over it, so ordered one more drink :)


Our main course orders were mamak mee goreng and mee laksa. Portions were pretty good. Laksa smelled divine and the taste was good too. Generous amount of prawn and chicken (I opted for the mixed meat version) in a flavourful coconut broth with perfectly cooked noodles was yummy. I was so full with the starters, I couldn't go beyond couple of spoons. I got it packed. Mamak mee goreng was very good with juicy chunks of chicken.



Paid 2400 bucks in total. May seem a little pricey, but I felt the food made justice to the pricing. Loved the quick and attentive service. From refilling water to clearing the table, everything was prompt. And they waited patiently for us to finish clicking pics before serving :P

Vadai - Street Food, Thiruvanmiyur

A friend of mine was raving about the taste and varieties of vadai (lentil fritters) available near RTO signal. My curiosity spiked and tried them one fine evening. From then on, I'm a regular customer here. A small kiosk kind of set up next to Lakme Salon, in Thiruvanmiyur serves you about 5 types of vadai. Priced at 5 rs each, carrot/keerai/vazhai poo/beetroot and onion vadai are served piping hot along with kaara chutney. They start by 4.30pm in the evening and they have about 2-3 varieties available all the time. The taste was so good, we requested them to supply for a small party in our apartment. Less oily, fresh and tasty bajjis (pre orders only) vanished in few minutes.

The one thing I love about their Vadai is that it showcases the star ingredient beautifully. Be it the slight tart-iness from the vazhaipoo vadai or the mildly sweet carrot vadai, the flavour is perfectly delivered

Location : When you are at the RTO Signal in thiruvanmiyur, take the left (while going towards ECR) or right (while going towards adyar). You'll see Lakme Salon on ur left. Next to that building, you can see this kiosk on the pavement. Mrs & Mr. Sivasakthi runs the show and they can be reached at 97864 71947.

196 Degree Below, Alwarpet

After a fantastic lunch at NE Kitchen, we were looking for dessert places. Don't know why or who chose this place (I would blame Sudharshan and Dipak) we landed here for our dessert fix. Located in one of the bylanes of TTK road (behind Spoonbill to be precise) this place shares its space with soul garden bistro. Menu is pretty simple and we settled with cheesecake ice cream with amanera cherry syringe, milo with Oreo sand and salted caramel syringe and salted caramel ice cream with chocolate fudge syringe along with a cappuccino.


There was some confusion on the availability of sugar free ice cream. While one staff said sugar free isn't available, the other one suggested to take cheesecake as it was sugar free 😳😳 Cheesecake had a weird taste with too much of sourness from the cream cheese (I think so) Cherries weren't ripened and were tart. Milo was good but nothing wow. Salted caramel was bad. Literally bad. Tasted more like some protein powder (I remember eating a biscuit similar to this available in hospitals. Don't remember the name though.) Nutella walnut waffles wasn't good either. Nutella for the name sake over a cardboard-y texture and bitter tasting waffle. My friend couldn't complete her cappuccino as she felt it was too bitter.





Paid 1100 bucks for all these which was not at all worth the money. That too Oreo sand was charged 20 bucks. One or two spoonful of Oreo crumbs for 20 bucks was too much.

North East Kitchen, Egmore

North East Kitchen was in my wish list for quite a long time. When we were looking for lunch options in and around Egmore, this place was our first choice. The gang landed here for lunch last Saturday. Located in the Wellingdon Estate complex, this is a small place with 6-8 tables. We ordered lots of stuffs and we had to wait for a long time to taste the food.

We started off with pork momo, chicken momo and beef fried with chillies. Beef was juicy and spicy and it vanished quickly. Meat in the momo filling was flavourful and tasted delicious. But I felt the dough to be too thick in the momos.





Beef Thukpa was mind blowing. Crispy shredded beef in a lip smackingly delicious broth was so good along with noodles and veggies. Every sip was bursting with flavours. Beef noodle was a tad bit oily but damn tasty. Again the meat was tender and juicy. Kimchi Jigae aka pork with kimchi was yummy. I just tasted the stew alone. It was served with many accompaniments including rice, roasted peanuts, sprouts salad, pickled veggies and so on. Kiddo had chicken fried rice. If you like Japanese rice you will love this one. Short, plump and slightly sticky rice was very good. Tangsuyuk otherwise called the crispy fried pork with veggies was our last order. We expected crispy pork to be served in a bed of veggie sauce. But there were more pineapples and apple than veggies (zucchini and carrots). Neverthless, the crispy pork was good and I kinda liked the fruity base :P






Service was slow. But once they started serving the food, they maintained the flow. Paid 2810 for all these along with one extra portion of beef fried with chillies, beef noodle and om rice. Given the taste, quality and quantity it was absolutely worth the money.

Place      : North East Kitchen
Location  : Egmore
Cuisine    : Tibetian/Korean Veg and Non-Veg (Serves beef and pork)
Cost        : Meal for two would cost 600-800 approximately
