Mom had a a very long and busy weekend, and said that she required some retail therapy to relax along with a holiday to the kitchen. This is a very rare request from my mom who always prefers to stay at home during holidays and unwind at her own pace. So dad, mom and me, set on the retail therapy spree in T Nagar and Pondy Bazaar. Hunger pangs struck at 12 30 pm sharp. Our initial plan was to go home drop all the stuff and then drive out to KNK road. But all the three were tired, we just wanted to eat lunch and head back home and crash.
I suggested Mathsya on Thanikachalam Road. I was rather little hesitant, as this place is known to be full especially on Sundays. We reached around 1 pm and found a table just perfect for us.
On the outset, I wanted to try their Lunch Buffet but felt very lazy to go and pick up food every now and then. We settled for Veg Meals - South Indian Thali which is priced at Rs. 125/-. The menu offered Special South Indian Thali priced at Rs 145/-. The difference between the two is a soup and an ice cream.
The South Indian Thali was tasty and just about enough for anyone with a good appetite or hunger. The Thali had the following items
Chow Chow Kootu
All these items were unlimited and rice was served hot on the plate.
The taste of all the items was very homely, with no additional or extra spices or flavor. It was just rightly made. The food did not make us feel full but was just right. Most important rice was cooked to the correct consistency and did not have the soda that is usually used in other hotels.
It was a very good experience of dining in Mathsya T Nagar, would definitely go back
