We heard few of our friends talk about Tawa 9 in Mandaveli and decided to check it out. Located near the State bank of India branch of Venkata Krishnan Road (Near Mandaveli Bus Stand), Tawa 9 is a decent vegetarian restaurant. We met the owner Maitri and got to know her recommended items to try it out. We were a mixed group of South Indian and North Indian / Continental food lovers and this place had items to cater to our various needs. We were there at lunch time and we saw Tamilnadu and North Indian meals available.
E-Hotel is located in one of our familiar haunts, Express Avenue mall. We are pretty regular to Express Avenue but never knew where it was and wondered about its location whenever a few of our friends talked about it. Vegetarians know the difficulty of eating at Food court in EA mall. Not many vegetarian options out there and we always seek the two vegetarian restaurants in the food court for our food. So when we were invited for a Blogger meet at E-Hotel, it was with sheer curiosity that we landed there. The entrance to the hotel is in Patullos Road and so head to Gate number 1 or 2 to get to E-hotel and to the restaurant Entrée. So now the secret of its location is out, let us talk about the ambiance and food.
A new restaurant, Mamagoto serving Asian cuisine has opened in Chennai after establishing itself in Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru. We are vegetarians and Asian food did not spell well to us. We spoke to them and understood that they have vast options for vegetarians too. So we decided to try it out.
Located in Khader Nawaz khan road at Olivier in 1st floor, Mamagoto is a casual dining restaurant. It was buzzing with activity at 7.30 PM on a weekday. If you are curious to know what ‘mamagoto’ means, it translates to ‘to Play with Food’. Interiors were vibrant and well lit fit enough for a nice and enjoyable foodie day out. As confirmed, the menu was Pan Asian and ran to several pages starting from detox drinks to desserts.
We are back on the restaurant journey and this time it is to a 2 month old restaurant Tasteation in Tharamani. It is strategically located In the Tharamani link road opposite TCS in Ramagiri extension. It is in the ground floor of Velacity, deluxe service apartments. This is a fresh breathe of air for pure vegetarians living in and around Tharamani as this place lacks a hep Global cuisine Vegetarian restaurant. So on a beautiful sunny day, we decided to check out this restaurant and its offerings. It is located on the lane that turns from the Taramani Velachery main road. Since the Restaurant is part of the service apartments, the entry to it is through the Service apartment entrance. The entrance is not a typical one and can be quite misleading but once inside, a nice restaurant unfolds in decor and presentation.
