Purse-friendly menu

TIRED OF Continental and Occidental cuisine? Well, then there are always the `vilas' and `bhavans' that still provide conventional food. Like the Madurai Meenakshi Bhavan, located on Santhome High Road.

The menu is varied — idly, dosa and bonda from the South along with tandoori naans, kulchas, parathas, chapathis from the North. There are Chettinad specialities too, besides the noodles and fried rice varieties. What about desserts? Meenakshi Bhavan has an assortment of sweets and fresh fruit juices.

It is the right place to stop by on your way to work or for those who want a break from the routine. Well, finished with the food and dessert. Worried about your blood pressure after those delicious sweets? Never mind, you could check it right there at the Kodys BP station in the hotel, for just Rs.10. What's more, the hotel creates a patriotic atmosphere. Yes, the walls have interesting photographs of Gandhiji.

No hype, no showing off, just the right ambience for those who are looking for quality food that is affordable. Special orders are undertaken too.

Madurai Meenakshi Bhavan is located at 133, OPG Towers, Santhome High Road, Ph: 4616165.
