A quick note about the international restaurant chain based in Chennai that has opened an outlet in Hyderabad. It’s located in the lane beside Model House, Punjagutta. The food is darn spicy. It’s cooked in authentic Chettinadu style. Not that I am an expert on Chettinadu cuisine, but it did seem authentic.

Natukodi Rassam was followed by Anjappar Fried Chicken for starters. Main Course was Muton Sukka Varuval with butter roti and ended with a Natu Kozhi Biryani. The food was served in super quick time. It was spicy as expected. Service was good. The waiters were mostly speaking Tamil, which is something that I am not used to. But it’s good news for all the tambis living in Hyderabad. Some of them were speaking in Tamil to the waiters.

The place was quite full, considering that it opened to foodies only a week or two ago. Their steward told me it’s going to ‘officially’ open on the 25th of November. If they maintain the quality of food and service, it’ll be quite a place to visit. Chettinadu food is delightful if you like your food hot and spicy.

    ‘officially’ open kya re? You mean to say they’re serving the customers just like that! Isn’t it strange?

    @Prasanthi: We’d better keep printouts of Akki’s blog posts handy to blackmail him in future 😛

    @RKS: I guess officially means they’ll announce/advertise it then itself. This is mebbe a drill for mapping waiters to tables, lead/lag time etc etc. I understand most hotels do it for few days before they open.

    @Akki: What abt the Veg. food koshecn 👿

    No blackmail can help. This fellow is least bothered and will not give a damn to any such act. What you guys probably can do is request God to “get a pure veggie to marry akki who will have the ability to change him”

    Wow…Thats great news…Am a big fan of Karaikudi / Chettinad cuisine. I have my lunch at Anjappar, Nungambakkam or Karaikudi, T Nagar whenever I visit Chennai and eat regularly at Anjappar, Koramangala when at Bangalore. Excellent food. Spicy, the way i love it. The non-veg gravies they serve are just yumm….Try their non-veg thaali……:drool:

    And Akki, congos….Believe this blog was featured in Indian Express.
