Recommended food & restaurants in Chennai

Last Updated: 18 Jun 2010 8 Contributors

Chennai is probably the best place in the country to try modern authentic Chettinad cuisine. The names of the foods are difficult tongue twisters and it is best to figure out the content lest surprises pop out of platters. Exoticas like Pigeon meat are not uncommon. Some of the names for you to try out are karuppatti paniyaram, paal paniyaram, kuzhi paniyaram and kozhakattai. Most of the curries are served either with rice, appams or dosas.
