Chennai Bloggers Club fondly called CBC hosted a tasting session at ETC restaurant and café and as usual we decided to try out the vegetarian section. Normally in many restaurant serving both veg and non-veg, it is almost a dry run for vegetarians without much fan fare in the menu or the offering. For a change, ETC blew us over with their interesting vegetarian menu. Before we head on to talk about the food, we would like to talk about the ambiance. We, at Chennai Focus, love to talk about our forgotten culture and heritage and here we found a connection. We were taken to the first floor where we saw Giant Paramapadham on the wall and it was no painting, a live board with coins to play. We are sharing the pictures for you to understand and you can very well understand our urge to play it, climbing the stairs and zipping down on the snakes. Certainly a point of fascination and there were other games too.
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.
Here is what they say …
Our cuisine is truly at its original best with an emphasis on using the freshest ingredients, a passion for cooking with a combined attention to detail. We do not use frozen meat or poultry & our fish is from reliable sources.
Chennai Focus requests you to share your feedback with us.
Summer is not only the time to unwind and escape to the deep woods but also to eat good, authentic food in a relaxed manner and soothing ambience. ‘Influence’, Chennai’s fine designer restaurant, serves exotic vegetarian lunch buffet, which is pocket-friendly.
