If you want pure vegetarian South Indian food, then I would recommend Murugan Idli Shop. I thought their logo of steaming idlis was simple and enticing. It’s a 15 year old chain from Chennai in South India, with 2 outlets … Continue reading

Addicted to Samy’s Curry at Demsey

After a disappointing meal at Muthu’s at Race Course Road, we took another trip to Demsey, for much more fulfilling non-vegetarian banana leaf meal. Muthu’s was $40 compared to the $27 we spent at Dempsey. Samy’s Curry blew the competition … Continue reading
