I enjoy eating good food. Want proof? My doc yells at me.. :sm12: :sm12:

Being in a big city, have the opportunity to try different cuisines..

American food: BBQ especially pork and steak. Good bratwurst too. Chilis, and couple of local grill/steak places around, which are pretty special.. Jerry's Famous Deli has some truly wonderful sandwiches I have ever tried. Soup and Sandwich combo at the Corner Bakery, Mimi's Cafe.. and Oh.. the endless soup at Souplantation.. :b: Also love California Pizza Kitchen.. Their mushroom pizza and potato+leek soup is unbelievable.. And yeah.. rr.. the list is near endless..

Thai: Can't get enough of sate, pad thai, and my local Natalee Thai's spicy monsoon noodless.. woo hooo... :dance: Had eaten there so much, the waitresses greet me by name.. :P :P cute girls.. :P There are other thai places around too, but the list has to be short.. :snooty:

North Indian: Palak panneer & chicken saagwaala.... India's oven is not bad...

South Indian.. : Masal Dosa and Idli sambar at Udupi, and south indian meals at Annapoorna.... (Teacher kitte sollananum.. Annapoorna has like 4 curries, 2 kootu, poriyal, aviyal, aappam, peas rice, pongal, rice, rasam, sambar, thayir :sm05:, appalam, and sweet, and couple of nibblers.. unlimited buffet.. :P :P :P Weight poda romba vasathi.. :P)..

Chinese: PF Chang (bit americanized, but great food), JR Seafood and its endless fish, crab varieties, Couple of small restaurants in China Town, with some local delights..

Italian: Olive garden.. :b: Macaroni Grill..

Mangolian restaurent - tried the one on village.. decent food.. should try some more..

Korean - Their bbq is great. Better still is the one my friend makes.. :wink:

Mexican: Woww.. acapulco.. (Shrimp fajita.. !), El toratora (grilled chicken, and beef tamale).. oh.. oh.. and their spicy spicy salsa.. oh.. boy..

There is a nice greek restaurant on Santa Monica, loveliest waitresses and yummy yummy grapeleaf dolmakadakia (!?!!).. Athens is not bad.. Could live on that.. :wink:

have tried some polish sausages at an international food festival.. wowww.. too good.. juicy..

Man.. I could go on and on... I will stop it here for now..

I tried Olive Garden last week. Delicious food there. :b: Try that Eggplant Parmigiana. Simply superb. Its like Brinjal Cutlet with some sauce and Sphagetti. Comes with your choice of Soup or Salad. Both are good. Best part is the waiter brings a huge piece of cheese and shreds infront of your eyes & mixes with the salad.

Yummy yummy grows my tummy !!

California pizza kitchen is quite good too. But their pizza's are way too small for me. :ahha: But their Choc souffle cake and tiramisu will definitely take you near the gates of சொர்கம். :sm05:

Malay food is pretty close to your taste. They have this "Karry Seyyur" Not sure of the spelling though. A spicy curry with babycorn, Green peppers, Brocolli and Tofu. Comes with a bowl of rice. Great taste but the rice is too less for a glutton. Anyway u can order for an additional bowl for another 50cents. ;)

Indian Restaurants in the US are tasting very much alike and Im getting bored with them. Tried this Madras Saravana Bhavan recently and went for a Paper Masala. I got a Newspaper Masala :00: It spanned for 2 tables and I had to literally fold it into four and read..err eat. Not so tasty :snooty: I can make better ones at home. :ahha:

It would be a sin if I miss Ricobenes or Chicagoan Specialities Giordano's or Nancy's. People visiting Chicago, dont miss deep dish Stuffed pizza's at Giordano's. Stuffed Spinach pizza is my fav. :)

My mom's kitchen

ofcourse buddy...thats the best place to eat. nothing beats that though.


All Veggie Burgers out there (thats how my boss has nick named me

if you love veggie burgers so much. you should try the veggie burger in BK with onion ring sauce. thats a really nice combo. just adds that spice to the otherwise bland burger.

Vaithiyaramma,
burger'ku McD'a :00: avan kudukkara dhammathoondu burger emmaathram(yaana pasikku solapooori'a ;) ).

ok having started the topic, here goes my list....

Saravana Bhavan and Komalas in Chennai, The Bell Hotel in Sivakasi..

Here in the US....

Minerva @ Herndon and Fairfax, VA(its a reallly nice but a little expensive one. but the best around DC area even better than Udupi Palace(near Greenbelt).

Tamarind in Pittsburgh(way too good, should try Bishi Bela Baath there, thats my fave there).

Madras Saravana Bhavan @ Atlanta..the only item I love to eat here is the Rava Masal Dosa. Dosa Molaga podi ellam pottu besha irukkum :sm11: :sm11:.

Mayuri @ Houston...pretty inexpensive lunch buffet place. 10 roobaikku round katti saapudalaam. i wouldve caused some considerable loss to this place by going to lunch buffets :ee:.

And if I don't have money....

veggie burger with onion ring sauce combo @ Burger King
Choc Icecream shake @ McDonalds
Bean Chalupa with 2-3 Fire sauce, cheesy fiesta potatoes with 2 hot sauce combo @ Taco Bell.

well thats a small list for now ;).


Masal Dosa and Idli sambar at Udupi, and south indian meals at Annapoorna.... (Teacher kitte sollananum.. Annapoorna has like 4 curries, 2 kootu, poriyal, aviyal, aappam, peas rice, pongal, rice, rasam, sambar, thayir :sm05:, appalam, and sweet, and couple of nibblers.. unlimited buffet..

Did you forget dosa express in NJ ? I thought it was very good.

Udipi has moved from Framingham and has gone to Lowell , they have opened Madras Woodlands in that place in Framingham now and wow the food is too goodd.......

Rasoi was ok except for the buffet , you get to eat everything for ~$7

Quiznnos sub--best toasted subs ever
Pizza hut- best deep dish bell pepper and onions :sm03:

now comes indian,
woodlands- what a buffet , best ever south indian
bombay garden- awesome north indian buffet

I have heard that the food joints in the east cosat, especially near NJ are real good, have never been there.

as for american junk
French fries- Checkers fries
Veggie Burger- Burger King
who will forget the 6 inch veggie max subs.

Saapaadu?? Come on, before I could prepare my pasta and come here, the topic has been filled by replies. :D :D :D All சாப்பாட்டு ராமன்ஸ். :sm12: :sm12:

I am a big fan of Italian food. Pasta, lasagnia, spaghetti, anything vegetarian with their sauce is mouth watering. Add Garlic bread or bread sticks, with a tinge of olive oil!!! What do I need more? I not only eat italian, also make few nice italian recipes. :D :D :D. Olive Garden ( surprised??, we have one in our village too :D :D ) Modos and Brown Bottle( they have nice chicks serving food ), Fuzzoli are all good ones in Cedar Rapids, Iowa City.

Pad Thai, tofu, vegetable curries of thai with their steamed rice goes on well. I also frequent a Vietnames restaurant, but the difference is marginal.

Quizznos is the only subs that I like. When no other options available, resort to McD or BK.

Chines buffet is always good. Get a good variety of food. Butter Potatoes, potatoes fried in butter is so yummy.

Mexican, of course yes, El Dorado is one. Pancheros is another. Fajitas with grilled veggies, with hot sauce and pickles is my favourite.

Got to try the new Mongolian joint. Have not tried Greek yet. Japanese is also ruled out, because they serve mostly Sushi which is meat.

Though there are two Indian restaurants, dont go there at all. Crappy food. I can make better dal and roti.

Above all, making nice sambar, with potato podimas, in the comfort of my living room, watching Trisha dance "Yaakai thiri" is priceless.

Chicago'la Chinatown area is the best. Ask her to try Chinese Kitchen or Oriental Express. There is also a Malaysian restaurant by name Penang, just by the Chinatown train station.... or or if she goes a few blocks down south to IIT-Bronzeville area (namma pettai :ahha: ) you have a few more chinese take-outs.

Yesterday had to walk lonely, as I missed the last bus on Sunday. Crossed this mexican joint by name Qdoba. Heard they have good food, but hadnt tried before. Tried them yesterday and their Burritos were extra Hot and Spicy, while their Waitress's were Hotter. :)

Good food just around the same price as Chipotle or Willi's. Finally decided it was time to leave after one Super Veggie Burritto, 2 Soft Tacos and an order of Nachos with Jalapenos Cheese sauce and one Diet Coke :sm12:

:sm12: one of my friend always boasts about being on diet (when actually he's not). He goes to Burger King and orders "double cheese burger" with diet coke :sm12: antha kathai maathiri irukku.

By the way, me too Diet Coke. Not for dieting actually, but for the sweeter taste in it than the regular Coke :b:

My favorite mexican food is always the Chicken Chalupa.

Ok here is my list

Dosa Grill (Veg) - South Indian - NJ
Akbar(Veg & Non-Veg) - Indian - NJ

These two are my anytime favorites. The latter one is bit costly though.

If you need directions to these two places, PM me :)

Oooohhh....cafe mocha & belgium chocs...my sort of place...cheers Dinesh :ahha:

In London...there's loads of Indian/Sri Lankan places...a few which I go to on a regular basis are:

"Chetna" in Wembley is one of my fav places....their bhel poori / pani poori / sev poori are real nice... They're well known for their falooda's (personally I'm not much of a falooda person)....add: 420-422 High Road, Wembley.

"Chennai Dosa" in Eastham is nice too...but it doesn't have the restaurant feel...it's more like an everyday place! Add: 339 High Street North, Manor Park.

"Kerala Bhavan" in Croydon is quite nice....add: 16 London Road, Croydon.

"Sakoni's" in Wembley serves some really nice dishes...but once again I wouldn't class that as a restaurant...but the food is good and hence there's always a queue out the door (especially during Fridays/Saturdays)...add: 192 Ealing Rd, Wembley.

And there's a lot more ;)

Its near all Ibrahim ravuthar's office. Oh ya , cricket at SCG was great , gotta go at 5:30-6:00 to get a pitch :-). If you have played basketball or cricket at Natesan park pbbly I know you or one of my friends might definitely. Great to play badminton inside the park also.

Priyam.. intha weekend pooga mudiyalai.. rain .. so no NY, next weekend will try :) instead we went to the one suggested by Raghu in NJ itself.. Vasantha bhavan...

My Review -

Great food... But couldnt try their speciality because sema crowd, so menu theenthu pochu.. karaikudi parotta, special kurma. puttu, eppadi naraiya authentic variaties irukku... fried idlies with special chutney ;), paneer burgi dosai, appuram namba oorla VGPla kedaikumae biggggggggggg dosa, athu mathiri 6 feet dosai irukku :ee:

So atlast we went 2 hrs before closing, appovae, special thing ellam ellai .. so my advice.. GO EARLY :)

Its an hr drive from my place.. but it was worth it.. Thanks much Raghu :) After a long time had some authentic south indian food outside :) romba mukiyam, "round katti" adiikalaamnu meals irukumnu poogaatheengo.. its mostly different dosais and curries..
Rice itemla mixed rices and then with the north indian curry dishes u get rice, avaloo thaan.. mathapadi its mostly dosai, oothaapam, adai typpe tiffin item thaan :)

minerva...non-veg'a :Ksp:...i thot it was pure vegetarian(both Herndon and Fairfax versions). I am an addict to Herndon Minerva. Except for the spring roll dosa, liked every other dosa variety there. Pretty nice vegetarian place.

Never had a chance to explore Fairfax Minerva, was way too crowded everytime I visit.

Udupi Palace in Northern DC(Takoma Park, MD) wasnt that good as I expected, heard there is one more in Gaithersburg from friends that it is pretty good.

Minerva, Herndon is very famous for non-veg items, especially butter chicken and hydrabai biriyani. I really wonder, how u couldn't smell the non-veg there.

oh i c...i really dint feel it was a non-veg special at all. though it is a little bit expensive. defenitely worth the food.

there is a Madras restaurant in Dallas(the name of the restaurant also starts with Madras), its quite close to Coit Road and is somewhere in North Eastern suburbs of Dallas. If I remember right, they have 2 branches in Houston as well(one is in Sugarland, 'nother close to downtown). completely forgot about the name, but the food there is really good. it is being run by some chennaiite. yaarkavadhu nyabagam irukka andha restaurant per ennanu :think:

The Fairfax Minerva is just off I-66 from Exit 57(not sure whether it is A/B, remember it is an exit towards Fairfax).

Herndon Minerva, take the right just before Route 28 off Route 50, it is in a huge shopping mall(infact thats the only commercial location you can find after you take that right from Rt 50).

topic about food and still no post from me.. shameful act from my side :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

Let me start with Indian cuisine. I give least preference to indian cuisines .. ironically they are found everywhere :doh: :doh: :doh: . If you like to have a full meal without biting the wallet . Go for Komala vilas sunnyvale , CA ..near by is chat paradise which is also pretty reasonable. Unlimited meals priced at 8 dollars with tax is reasonable looking at the quality of food.

Medium priced restaurants are shivas (naan and paneer butter masala are excellent ) , taj mahal all located in downtown mountain view.

Now comes the pricey ones.. Saravana bhavan (Only one of its kind in Bay area) .. pleasant service but always crowded. If you are hungry dont dare to go there, be ready to wait for atleast 15 minutes. For non veg .. amber and passage to india are next to next.. quite lively atmosphere. prices range from 14 to 21 dollars .. food is not delicious but edible.

oops forgot about "darbar" it in downtown pala alto ..good food . they accept coupons

Moving on to next famous cuisine... chinese.. :P :P :P . I love chinese food.. Jing Jing in downtown palo alto is famous for kung pao chicken and schewan noodles... nice hot combo... so is garlic sauteed chicken... If your are a meat lover this is the place..

mr.chau sucks but if you want to eat ..eat it.. Indians generally wont prefer chinese noodle houses since they are authentic chinese. I have been in and out few noodle houses and they were good. Note : I like to try variety stuff rather than sticking to one cuisine ..

Every street in bay area would have a thai restaurant..the ones i like are amarin , krung siam , siam royal , banana leaf(they serve delicious starters... have with beer.. nothing beats it) .. :D :D :D . prices are reasonable from 15 to 20 dollars .. If you go with a group you will end up saving at the same time trying more combinations.. Amarin is famous for cocunut chicken.. for veggie lovers... amarin has seperate restaurant just a couple of blocks from the non veggie restaurant... Banana leaf is known for starters and sizzlers... :ee: :ee: this is one damn fine restaurant.. the crowd is also unbelievable... :D c'mon you know what i mean..


mexican..mmmm.... chipotle ..nothing beats it in burrito category..

El Tequeria grill is good for sea food salads... i always look for only one thing in a mexican restaurant.. salsa and nachos ..okie thats 2 things :wink:

How about singaporean style... Straits in El Camino... quite fancy one ... but food tastes great .. it has a attached bar for your convenience :ahha:

Did i miss anything .. :think: :think: :think: :think: :think: I might have..

yey if you do visit bay area and stuck for good .. let me know .. can help you around.. I just charge a meal :ahha:

Been to Vatica in Marietta, GA yesterday night.

Instant coffee is simple as the word means. Just mix Milk, sugar and Instant coffee powder and tada u get coffee.

Filter coffee actually is a 'Batch process' and requires Coffee powder (A mix of peaberry and Chikory in 70-30 or 75-25 or whatever ratio) which is first filled in a dedicated filter and boiling hot water is poured into it. The decoction which is collected in the lower part of the filter is then mixed with milk and sugar, without using a spoon, but by "aaththing" (wht is the equivalent english word ? :think: ) and prepared.

09-15-2005, 09:15 PM

Jason's deli is a similar chain (have seen it only in the south), really good food. but a little bit expensive than Quiznos.

silix did u try Frontera Mex grill in the ATL. Bean Burritos are semma filling. Dint visit frequent enough to try a lot.

what's the difference between instant coffee and filter coffee?

Instant coffee is just add coffee powder, sugar to milk and heat it.

Coffee filter use panni coffee and hot water kalandha oru liquid kedaikkum. adhu, sugar and milk mix panni panradhu dhaan filter coffee.

New Mother India - Waltham MA : Think thrice before going !!!


I hate to do it but doing it. :(

Mother India used to be my fav restaurant when I visit Boston. I used to drive that iriirtating 35+ Miles to Waltham to eat Saag Paneer/ Navrathan Khorma with Butter Naan and Jeera rice. But last week, I got to see the other side of the restaurant. :( No I dont mean the backyard. :nono:

I ordered Paneer butter masala and Butter naan. Naan was totally crappy. You do a carbon dating, and see that it was quite 'ancient'. And the Jeera rice which comes with the curry was totally stale and yucky. Had to drive another 30 miles to Haveli in Cambridge, which was kind of ok, but definitely doesn't worth a review.

I think you are talking about MASALA .. it was too good when they started , but the taste has gone down since

BOMBAY STYLE CHINESE CUISINE: TRY HOT WOK VILLAGE,there r two branches in the US in Chicago and another in Atlanta. It is really superb,u get to choose ur sauce type also u can choose ur spicy level....topmost level is fire. If u go there don t forget to try MASALA SODA(JALJEERA). though they have veg n non veg unlike other chinese restaurants u don t get the oil smell or taste.

Spring rolls(veg) is tasty also hot b sour soup is good. also try chilli potato .....yummmmmmyyyy n hot(spicy).

Indian food in chicago: There r lots in chicago but am just talking abt 1 city now schaumburgh

Cafe of India
Location: Fayette St, Morgantown, WV

Originally planned to have food at Quiznos, just to find out they close at 8 (I went inside at 745 :-s). So thought, I'd goto the only Indian restaurant in town just a block away.

That was the stupidest thing I did, It was the worst buffet I've had in all 4 years in US. Naan was totally burnt out, channa masala was tasteless, gulab jamun was hard as a stone, samosa and pakora was cold. The only thing that was acceptable was the mango lassi, which I ordered extra. I believe mango lassi is available in readymade form too in 1 gallon cans (never saw it in store, but happened to note in one of the Minerva Cuisines in DC). I don' t believe 3 samosas, couple of pakoras, 2 naans, 1 gulab jamun and a mango lassi will fill a sapaaturaman stomach like mine, baking soda seems to be the primary ingridient here.

On the whole, it was an absolute was of investment (12 bucks), the 'mess' style Indian eateries at Southwest Fwy-Hillcroft intersection were far better than this for half the price.

These guys are the only Indian cuisine in a 70 mile radius and probably the only one in WV state. Unless there is a competition for this, I don't sense any improvement. If you ever drop by this village, don't eat at this place.

Spotted this place called Pita Pit (http://www.pitapit.com/) on the way back, how good is it? anything for vegetarians?
