Go combo!

The `Combo meal' introduced by GG's Snacks and Desserts offers simple homemade food


WHENEVER YOU dine out you look for variety, right?

That's quite understandable for you would really like to tuck into a variety of flavours. But there are those who eat out simply because they do not have time to prepare food at home or don't know to. They usually stick to `standard meals'.

The Combo meals introduced for dinner (Rs. 45) at GG's Snacks and Desserts, Race Course, is targeted at this group. "We started this keeping in mind the needs of those who simply do not have enough time to cook. Office-goers, college students and executives are our target audience," says Surendar G, proprietor of the eat-joint.

Though the meal is not expansive, it has a few items that will tickle your taste buds.

Start off with the cabbage-stuffed paratha. It tastes good and goes well with the cauliflower peas curry. Almost all the items on the meal are mildly flavoured. "People don't like spicy food these days. That's why we reduced the spice content. We have stuck to simple home-made preparations," he adds.

The crispy corn cutlet was midly flavoured too. The mini curd idli was spicy and left you asking for more.

The items in the `Combo meal' change every day.

Vegetable pulav, mushroom briyani, coriander briyani and a curd item (upma, semiya or idli) find a regular place in the meal. The eatery is planning to offer a buffet breakfast shortly.

Wind up the meal with the lip-smacking peach cream pie (charges extra).

The peach sauce with praline and vanilla make for a great combination.
