Hotel Swaad, Thiruvananthapuram

When it’s December, it’s time for some vacation and to me it’s was 2 cities – Trivandrum & Bombay (I love calling it Bombay than Mumbai, as how people still call Chennai as Madras). I asked for some hotel referrals to my online friends and one of them wanted me to try this particular hotel…

Golden Chaat, Mint Street, Sowcarpet

Ritchie Street, Mount Road

This particular small Bullock cart outlet is famous among all the people who go to Ritchie Street, Wallers road right next to India Silk House Private Limited.

The last 2 weeks of August were damn good. I had to eat outside for 5 nights because of the invites and new hotel-must-try epsiodes.

Triplicane Ratna Cafe, Mylapore

The ever famous dialogue from Server Sundaram (Nagesh film) comes to my mind whenever someone yells for Sambhar in Ratna Cafe! He would ask for 2 plates of Sambhar (I think I am right) for the idlis and it was good to see someone having Sambhar exclusively. This particular outlet was famous in Triplicane and…
