Celebrity Foodie Kunal Vijayakar At Jonahs Bistro

Phoenix Market City known as phoenix mall has become a landmark in Chennai as a Multiplex and shopping mall in the southern part of Chennai in Velachery.  Living close to it, it is our usual haunt for get-togethers, shopping and a day out with family and friends.  Our activities always involved food and Phoenix Market City Chennai (PMCC) has food court and restaurants offering global Indian cuisine.  We are vegetarians and so we stick to the Vegetarian food at Rajdhani, ID and Kailash Parbat at the Food court.  Though we had seen so many restaurants tempting us to try them out for Vegetarian offering we never tried it out.  Just then we got an invitation to be a part of the Food Crawl event with Celebrity foodie Kunal Vijayakar at Phoenix Market City.  It was a great opportunity extended to us and we would like to thank Chennai Food Guide for including us in it.  We are foodies and anything that spells food has its own connotation in our dictionary.

Rajdhani Thali Restaurant – Celebrating Raw and Ripe Mangoes with Maharaja

IMG_3743

Rajdhani is a vegetarian thali restaurant serving meals with Gujarati and Rajasthani dishes. It is known as a Khandhani restaurant where food recipes are collected from villages just like our grandma recipes and then is explored  in the kitchen by Maharaja (Master Chef) for volume production and then gets introduced in the menu.  We were invited to taste the special dishes to be introduced this season, Mango specials.  It was awesome spread of dishes made of raw and ripe mangoes and the Maharaja stood next to us and explained the dishes and its ingredients in the way we could understand.  These special dishes would be rotated to the customers as the part of the regular thali during this season.

If you are wondering about the reach of mango in the cuisine, you are in for a surprise.  Right from salad to dessert, mango is there in each and their inclusion in the dish is so natural that we do not feel it as an obstruction to the flavor of the dish, in fact in many cases, it enhanced the flavor of the dish – one of it is the mango jalebi.
