Event – Blogger Engagement Programme in partnership with the Chennai Bloggers Club
The concept of a food street has been in existence since the times of the Mughals in Delhi and the Nawabs of Awadh. The parathe-wali gali in Delhi, the streets of old Lucknow, the stretches in Kolkatta near the New Market, China Town and Esplanade, Sowcarpet in Chennai the Chowpatty stretch in Mumbai, VM Street in Bengaluru are all examples of some popular food streets that we know. OMR Food Street – visit – http://www.omrfoodstreet.com has been operational for a while now and offers a wide variety of pocket-friendly culinary delights all in one property.
A lovely evening,
Of walking with friends,
Old and new,
Sampling food from,
Jokes, smiles, laughter,
All in harmony,
With lovely food,
Truly a memorable evening,
Thank you OMR Food Street!
There are shops selling vegetable and meat wraps, crepes and waffles, parathas and lassi, Salem Thattu Vadais, cakes, pastries and milkshakes, biriyani, shawarma, fresh sea-food, cooked sea-food, the ubiquitous filter kaapi, the flavoured soda, ice golas and much more.
We received a coupon sheet worth Rs 300 which we used in the various kiosks/restaurants located in the property. Other than Ajnabee Mithai Ghar all other restaurants were happy to accept the coupons.
I personally liked Ki Mu 200 – a millet-based food restaurant and their ragi dosai and chakkarai thinai pongal were good.
Zuki & Co – their crepe filled with jam and drizzled with a dash of honey and dry fruits inside was sumptuous.
Wrap-Aholics – Vegetable filled wrap was amazing – loved it!
Stuf-fed – Aloo parathas, and dryfruit lassi – safe dependable – nothing outstanding – I have eaten better parathas.
Cake Park – Chocolate Truffle Pastry – You can’t go wrong – sinfully decadent. Also bought a box of peanut cookies. Loved them!
Good variety and easy on the wallet.
Toilet and wash basins at the very end of the compound. Have to be cleaner!
Need mineral water cans at regular gaps as well as washbasins. The paper tissue is not a good idea to wipe stuff off your hands.
Stench of the seafood is quite thick in the air. After a point of time it was nauseating all of us are not like Goundamani in “Singaravelan” –
The concept may be drive, buy and say bye – but there were lots of people who came walking in — definitely need chairs at least!
A great experience. Thanks OMR Food Street and The Chennai Bloggers Club.
