Chennai’s Street Food Delicacy – Taste of Chennai

Courtyard By Marriott has put together various  Street Food Delicacies  of Chennai under a single roof  by hosting A food Festival which is wholly dedicated to re-create the Famous street foods in Chennai which  is headed  By Chef Justin Jacob who is a Head chef at Marriott.

I was one among the fellow bloggers intivited for the preview of the Food festival.  Below  is my take on the Food and everything Else.

Ambience :

The Ambience of paprika Cafe has turned into a mini Food Street from Paan  to Lassi shop everything  was planned and exhibited  perfectly which really went well With the theme of the festival.

FOOD :

The festival focus on the Major  Street Food of Chennai  such  as mylapore, Sowcarpet, T. Nagar, Triplicate & Marina.

FROM THE STREETS OF SOWCARPET :

#Dhokla #Khandhvi

There was 3 variant to Dhokla  and everything Tasted  pretty  Good.

#Lassiwala

#Vadapav  #MurukkuSandwich #AlooTikki

 

I loved the flavors except the fact murruku Sandwich lacked the originality.

#Jalebi #laddu #Jangiri #Badusha

 

Laddu And Jalebi was my favorite of all the sweets, nothing beats piping Hot Jalebis.

#Samosa #Alootikki #Kachorichat

The live counter  bought the  enthusiasm of being in a crowded street and waiting for the turn to order Garam Garam samosas.

#panipoori

#Channachat #Dhahipapdichat

I liked both the chats, the fresh Curd and other ingredients bought out the  sweet and  spicy flavors well.

This was the star dish and  probably most ordered  Dish . while the chole was delicious,  the batura was less oily and prepared  right from the scratch on orders.

FROM THE STREETS Of MARINA & TRIPLICANE

The first thing comes to our mind when we think of Marina us #Bajji #Vadai #FishFry #Squidfry.

The bajji and the day Vada was rightly done and it gave the perfect taste.

The fish should have not been fried deeply but the  squid was Crispy and fresh.

#biriyani for life

The flavors of the biriyani was rich and Delicious. The Mutton prices was cooked to perfection. 

FROM THE STREETS OF T. NAGAR

#Kaldosa #muttonsukka

The Mutton sulla had a lot of garlic and onions to it and less lamb peices,  it was spicy and a good combo to dosa.

FROM THE STREETS OF MYLAPORE

#tamrindrice #Lemonrice #idli #Vadacurry

Tamrind rice tasted  pretty  good, the combination of Papa balanced the dish. 

#paniyaram

Yumm!  It was Crispy and the chutney went really well with it, eating the paniyaram hot is the best thing about this dish.
