Hey peeps. Hope you are good. Finally found some time to post the next blog on the favourite hanging spot of Trichy – Shri Sangeetas. It’s just 10 minutes away from the Trichy Railway Station and barely 2 minutes from the Central Bus Stand.
My short trip to the city started with this place and it was right inside the premises of the hotel I stayed in. The hotel had 2 Sangeetas, one was this and the other was Sangeeta Anand (English literature people you see!). I tried both and would put a separate post for the Anand one.
In all the 4 days of my visit, I went to this hotel and had something atleast a coffee. You know I love coffee. If it’s good, I shall come back for life to the same place. Come see for yourself the food I had here.
1. Coffee – INR 25/-
My coffee was the same all the 4 days. Yes it looked exactly like this. I deleted 3 and posted 1 here. That’s their precision and dedication to the service rendered. Though it’s pricey a bit, you can get away with the high of the aroma.
2. Ghee Pongal – INR 58/-
They serve in banana leaves. This is rare even in Chennai as far as I have been to. I was very hungry the 1st day and had to gulp down everything that came my way. Pongal with all its go-to-sleep-right-now ingredients, this is the costliest I have eaten. Though it had about 2/3 cashews, I felt the rate for the quantity was not balanced. It would have been great had they filled some extra white areas of the plate and served it. Tasted great as usual but pricey.
3. Dosai – INR 58/-
Do take a look at the small tray containing 3 cups for the Chutneys and the Sambhar. This is a great idea and they keep giving extra how much ever we ask. See right there. I am having 3 trays and still have a full dosa left to be completed. Dosai (of course Idly) is always the thayir saadham of breakfast. It won’t affect your body at all even if it’s filled with 2 kilotons of uranium or plutonium. For the size, the price was okayish I would say but the dosai was great. Must try!
4. Vadai – INR 27/-
I haven’t seen a hole this big in my lifetime (:P), I promise. To balance the left brain right brain functionality, I had a vadai and completed the breakfast for the day. Vadai sutting is a big art that gets added to our resumes no matter which part of the world we are in and it of course comes with practice. This vadai was great with minimal peppercorns and green chillies. Went well with the Sambhar bath and tomato chutney. But again overpriced!
5. Masala Aappam – INR 89/-
I started this blog through a friend who was regularly updating and infiltrating some positivity into the social media more importantly the close circle of hers and she told me to try this for sure. I went ahead after my ice cream try at Michael’s, another famous must try at Trichy. Boy this was a beast. Don’t mind the rate just go have it for foodie’s sake. You will enjoy it for sure. This fills every RBC and WBC with the energy (:P) and you can feel it. Yes you can feel it. The amount of masala is 100 times that of a Saravana Bhavan Masala Dosai. Highly heavily dope-ily recommended!
The episode of Shri Sangeetas comes to an end and I am proud that I have tried something that’s one of the famous landmarks of Trichy. GST is 5% here. Do mind it. Hope you guys would agree with me and do share the blog with your circle.
